Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter as Georginio Wijnaldum posted an image of himself in training ahead of the clash against West Brom on Saturday.
The midfielder missed Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against Manchester United on Monday evening.
However, Jurgen Klopp confirmed the Dutchman is expected to feature against West Brom this weekend during Thursday’s press conference.
Wijnaldum’s influence in midfield was greatly missed on Monday evening, as Emre Can struggled to match the Dutchman’s energy and enterprise.
Since joining from Newcastle in the summer, Wijnaldum has built an encouraging partnership with Jordan Henderson as deep-lying midfielders in a successful 4-2-1-3 formation.
The Dutchman gave fans a boost ahead of the clash against West Brom by tweeting an image with the caption, “preparing for the game” and the hashtag #hardwork.
After the Manchester United draw, Liverpool fans were left ruing what could have been if Wijnaldum had lined-up against their arch rivals.
However, following his recent tweet, fans were in good spirits and there were plenty of messages of support for their midfield maestro.
Here is a selection of some of the best messages;
