Liverpool are preparing to face Toulouse in their Europa league match. The Reds just need to win this match and they’ll be through the knockout stages of the competition. They were amazing during the whole group stage in Group E matches.The Reds are currently topping their group with 3 wins in as many matches. However, Liverpool seems incomplete ahead of their clash against Toulouse. Although they’ve already won their home game against Toulouse, but the away game is going to be challenging without key players. To be more precise, some of the players who appeared at the home game were not present in the training session before the matchup against Toulouse.
Jurgen Klopp was seen instructing his men during the open training session. Absence of some players has raised concerns for the coach as well as the fans. The coach has to figure out a way to deal with the issue. However, the team will still qualify for the next round even if they lose 1 of 3 remaining games. But player’s availability is something that should be taken care off.
Who are the players without whom Liverpool seems incomplete?
As per liverpoolworld, during the open training session, Ryan Gravenberch and Curtis Jones were not present with the team.
Thiago Alcantara is already out with the hip injury and Gravenberch was expected to fill his place. He has started in 4 of Liverpool’s last 5 games. But he was nowhere to be seen in the training session. That raises the concerns for the fans if he’ll play or not. Furthermore, Gravenberch was also among the scorers in the 5-1 victory against Toulouse during the home left.
In addition to that, Curtis Jones was also not present in the session. The England international served a 3 Premier league game suspension and was ready to play against Luton Town. But the coach gave him rest in order to prevent his minor fitness issue from growing. Moreover, the Scotland international Andrew Robertson has still not been able to get back on the ground as he’s recovering from his shoulder injury.
