Jürgen Klopp has recently revealed striker Danny Ings is in ‘really good shape’ as they look ahead to tomorrow’s FA Cup game as they host West Brom.
The 25-year-old striker has not seen much game time for the Reds ever since his arrival from Burnley.
Klopp was recently questioned if Ings will be part of first team plans ahead of their clash with the Baggies, but the gaffer didn’t reveal any plans and just left us with words of confidence about the Englishman.
“He’s in really good shape, to be honest, but nothing to say in the moment about the line-up. We had problems last week and during the week, we had a few players ill, not too serious,” Klopp said.
“I don’t know [if he will start on Saturday], but Danny’s doing really well and the fact that we don’t give him on loan or something else already shows how our plans are with him.
“It was a very difficult time, I can imagine, for Danny. When I came in, on the first day he got the injury and since then it was with ups and downs, but meanwhile physically [he was] completely there.
“I can’t remember when the last session was that Danny was not involved in. Because of other reasons, different reasons, he didn’t play that often but he’s still a young boy and there’s still a lot of good years to come. So it’s a good situation for him and for us at the moment.”
It’s hard to say what the future has planned for £7.2m-rated Ings at Liverpool but it’s safe to say that he will have more time to prove himself and become a regular fixture for the Reds.
Liverpool currently sit fourth in the Premier League with 47 points, just three points behind Chelsea in third.
