LFC dealt potential double injury blow

    Coming off the back of two impressive wins against Arsenal in the Premier League and FC Porto in the Champions League, scoring six goals and keeping two clean sheets in the process, Liverpool are back in action once again this weekend with a league clash at home against Southampton.

    Unfortunately for Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, it seems as though he will have to work around the fact that he will be without two key senior players on this occasion.

    What’s the news?

    It has recently been reported by the Liverpool Echo, prior to Klopp’s press conference, that Reds duo Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita were not seen in the club’s Thursday training session and are presumably unexpected to feature in the clash against the Saints, which would surely have Klopp fuming.

    First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

    Both players have been suffering from hamstring injuries with Keita’s coming during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion and Firmino’s in their 2-0 home win against Atletico Madrid.

    In addition to Keita and Firmino, the report also claims that Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez were also not involved in the latest training session.

    Keita and Firmino have managed to rack up six goals and two assists between them in the Premier League so far this season, showing how useful they have been in an attacking sense alongside the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah who have 18 league goals between them.

    Do you think Liverpool’s injury issues will damage their PL title charge?





    Looking ahead to the Southampton game, if the pair aren’t fit enough to play, Klopp will be left hoping that the likes of Mane and Salah will be able to secure victory against a stubborn Southampton defence which has only conceded three more goals than the Reds at this stage of the season.

    Liverpool’s two previous games may have shown that they may not necessarily be struggling without the injured duo. However, given the hefty number of fixtures coming up for the Reds across the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup, Klopp will undoubtedly be hoping that they will be able to make full recoveries 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.
