Confirmed Team News: 'Outstanding' £15m star banned for Liverpool/West Brom; £20m attacker dropped after fitness fail

West Brom will be without their top defender for Saturday's Premier League clash with Liverpool.

According to the Birmingham Mail:

"Tony Pulis will be without star defender Jonny Evans. Evans^ picked up his 5th yellow card of the season against Tottenham last weekend making him unavailable for the trip to Anfield".

Pulis left £20m-rated Saido Berahino out of the last game against Spurs due to being 8lbs overweight, and the Baggies boss has confirmed today that he'll also miss the Liverpool game:

"We've come to the conclusion that's the best way forward, he [Berahino] has bought into it and we'll take him out of the firing line. It's important we get him back to sharpness and fitness".

As for Liverpool - the squad is in good shape, and Jurgen Klopp confirmed this on Friday:

"We have nothing to moan about. Wijnaldum is on the way back, so that's good. Nobody is ruled out for the game".

Klopp also hinted that Adam Lallana will be back in the starting lineup this weekend:

"This week he [Lallana] could train properly and everything is good. He has been on a constant high level, and with all the improvement in the team, he can take the benefit of this too".
