Liverpool are having an impressive season. They are just a point below the table toppers Manchester City. The way they’re playing clearly shows that they’ll overtake the blues anytime. Moreover, the Reds will be travelling to the Etihad to face the hosts. A win for them would ensure their top spot and further boost their confidence for the upcoming matches. In addition to that, Jurgen Klopp can take his team to the league title for the second time. However, Liverpool’s squad update ahead of their clash with the blues has another story to tell.
Some of the players in the Liverpool team are injured. Furthermore, the manager would be concerned as the match against the blues is surely going to be a challenging one. A loss would kill their hopes of getting the top spot because once Man City get better of Liverpool, they’ll manage other teams more or less conviently.
Who are the missing players in Liverpool’s squad update?
As per liverpoolecho, the Reds are going to facing Man City without some of their key players. Firstly, Ibrahima Konate might be unavailable for them. He picked up an injury during the October international break. Konate also missed Liverpool’s recent win over Brentford. Moreover, reports related to his injury have not been surfaced yet.
Joe Gomez is another player who might be missing this game. He was also absent in the 3-0 win over Brentford. Despite having an impressive start to the season, the player’s availability is doubtful. However, one good news is that Curtis Jones may be available for the Reds. He picked up a hamstring injury in the team’s Carabao Cup win over Bournemouth. In the meanwhile, Andrew Robertson is recovering from his shoulder injury. He suffered an injury during his international duty that got his shoulder dislocated. Let’s hope Liverpool win this match and get the top spot that they’ve been aiming for.
