Liverpool vice-captain James Milner can play as a right back in the Premier League match against Wolverhampton on Friday evening.

Recall, Milner sustained a small muscle injury in the Champions League match against Napoli last week and didn’t play against Manchester United on Sunday as a precaution.

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp also couldn’t count on Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the match against the Red Devils, so Nathaniel Clyne took the right-back position.

And although Clyne kept quite decently, it was just his third full match since May of 2017. Naturally, it will be difficult for Nathaniel to play again already on Friday.

Fortunately for Klopp, Milner returned to full training on Tuesday. The Evening Standard expects that the 32-year-old midfielder, who played almost the entire 2016/17 season as a left-back, will be sent to the right flank of the defence against the Wolves.
