Insider: Star attacker rested, Klopp starts rarely-seen star in 5 changes for Liverpool v W Brom
Jurgen Klopp is set to name a strong side for Saturday lunchtime’s Premier League clash against West Brom, according to an Insider.

The big news is that Roberto Firmino is being rested, although Golden Boot hunter Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will start the game.
Danny Ings will make a rare start for Liverpool. He got his first league start of the season in the 0-0 draw with Everton and he’ll be hoping for more action today.
Karius, Gomez, Van Dijk, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane, Ings.

West Brom would have been hoping for Klopp to put out a weaker team and might be resigned to relegation when they see this news. Firmino is the only one of the power three that Klopp has decided needs a rest ahead of the Champions League semi-final against Roma. Three points today would put Liverpool two points away from a guaranteed top-four spot and would seal West Brom’s inevitable doom. We can see goals.
