Liverpool’s injury crisis deepens


The evils are not alone in Liverpool because another avalanche of injuries has now been added to the crisis of results after Sunday’s classic defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League (3-2). Defenders Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip have joined the casualty list accumulated by Jürgen Klopp and will be out for between two and three weeks from the pitch.

Alexander-Arnold was substituted at half-time with an ankle problem, after a challenge from Gabriel Martinelli, while Matip, who was replaced in the second half by Ibrahima Konaté, picked up a leg injury.

A packed infirmary

Both footballers will miss between two and three weeks, so they join an infirmary where the Colombian Luis Díaz, ruled until December, is also present, Arthur Melo, who underwent surgery last week to with a groin injury in training, in addition to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keïta and Andy Robertson, absent in recent weeks.

Curtis Jones could be back

The good news for Jürgen Klopp is that this Wednesday he can have midfielder Curtis Jones back for the match against Glasgow Rangers in the Champions League. Jones, 21, has only played in one game this season because of a muscle injury.

The injury crisis comes at a delicate moment for Liverpool, who are in tenth place in the Premier League, 14 points behind leaders Arsenal, although in the Champions League they are second in their group with 6 points, 3 out of behind leader Napoli, and tomorrow they could even qualify for the round of 16 if, as they did last week at Anfield (2-0), they beat Rangers again in Glasgow.
