(Reuters) - Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is fit to face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday after recovering from a knee injury.

The 26-year-old missed Liverpool's 4-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur last weekend after colliding with midfielder James Milner in training.

"The knee is good now," the Netherlands international told the club website on Thursday. (

"I was unlucky that in training before the game I had a kick on it, it was in a duel. Milner tried to shoot and I tried to block but I was a little bit late with my block.

"I'm still in a little bit of pain but I can play with it. I had full training yesterday and felt good so probably I can play. The manager decides if he's going to put me in the first XI, but I will be available."

Ninth-placed Liverpool are on a three-game winless streak in the league while Huddersfield stunned Manchester United 2-1 last weekend.
