Liverpool have been dealt a blow on the personnel front, ahead of their latest outing.
West Brom vs Liverpool
Liverpool are set to face off with West Brom in a Premier League meeting shortly.
The tie is of little importance to the Baggies, who have already seen their relegation back to the Championship the season after winning promotion confirmed.
Liverpool, though, still have it all to play for, with a top-four finish not yet out of reach for the Reds.
Ahead of kick-off on Sunday, the Merseysiders sat 5th in the Premier League. And a victory would see Jurgen Klopp’s men climb to within a point of Chelsea in 4th.

Why Diogo Jota is missing for Liverpool vs West Brom
As such, given the importance of his side’s remaining three games of the season, Klopp will no doubt be keen to have as strong a squad as possible available to him for the run-in.
However, ahead of kick-off on Sunday, as mentioned above, the Merseysiders have been dealt a blow on the personnel front.
Diogo Jota has featured heavily in the Premier League since his return from injury. and scored in Liverpool’s win over Manchester United during the week.
However, it has since been revealed that Jota picked up a foot injury at Old Trafford, and in turn has been ruled out of the West Brom tie:
Diogo Jota has been ruled out of today’s game with a foot injury sustained at Manchester United on Thursday night.
