Coming from the back of two impressive wins against Arsenal in the Premier League and FC Porto in the Champions League, scored six goals and kept two zeros in the process, Liverpool are back in action again this weekend with a league match at home against Southampton.
Unfortunately for Red’s manager Jurgen Klopp, it seems as if he will have to circumvent the fact that he will be without two important senior players at this time.
What’s the news?
It has recently been reported by Liverpool Echo, before Klopp’s press conference, that the Reds duo Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita were not seen at the club’s Thursday training and are probably unexpected to be in the clash against the Saints, which would certainly make Klopp smoke.
In addition to Keita and Firmino, the report also claims that Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez were not involved in the latest training.
Keita and Firmino have succeeded rack scored six goals and two assists between them in the Premier League so far this season, which shows how useful they have been offensively along with the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah who have 18 leagues goal between them.
Do you think Liverpool’s injury problems will hurt their PL title charge?
And that is
Looking ahead to the Southampton match, if the pair are not fit enough to play, Klopp will have to hope that they, like Mane and Salah, will be able to secure victory against a stubborn Southampton defense that has only conceded three more goals. than Reds at this stage of the season.
Liverpool’s two previous matches may have shown that they may not necessarily be fighting without the injured duo. But given the sheer number inventory When he comes up for the Reds in the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup, Klopp will no doubt hope that they will be able to recover sooner rather than later so that he has more options at his disposal and more opportunities to rotate his players and give some a rest if they need it.
