Gakpo is back, Inacio chatter & Robertson’s operation – Latest LFC News

On the eve of Liverpool’s Europa League clash there was positive news about Cody Gakpo, a former Red in support of Ryan Gravenberch and more talk over interest in centre-back Goncalo Inacio.

Gakpo is fit and available for Liverpool after missing the last three games with a knee injury, a welcome boost!

“Cody is in full training now since Sunday, available for the squad,” Klopp confirmed on Wednesday. “Whatever we will do with that we have to see.”

It is positive news for the Reds as their midweek/weekend schedule continues.

And while Andy Robertson is not to return any time soon, the manager did reveal that the left-back has now undergone surgery on his shoulder and “all went well.”

It is the first of many on the road back to competitive action but that it is done will be a relief to all.

The definition of a rival can be misconstrued with a little recency bias, but who would you consider to be Liverpool’s biggest rivals?

It is what both Gareth Roberts and Paul Cope debated in the latest Wednesday show from This Is Anfield and the Late Challenge Podcast.

It’s quite the European schedule tonight, you may need multiple screens to be across it all!
