Liverpool injury update: Latest on 8 men ahead of tough Rangers, Arsenal and Man City run

Liverpool’s injury problems at the start of the Premier League season, especially in midfield and center-back, have contributed to a slow start for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

However, the situation appears to be improving, and Reds fans are eager to learn when they may anticipate the return of the rest of their best players ahead of the next five games against Rangers, Arsenal, and Manchester City.

Sportsdias examines the fitness of Klopp’s players as they attempt to improve their relatively bad performance.

Andy Robertson 

The Scotland captain was forced to miss the international break due to a knee injury sustained near the end of Napoli’s 4-1 defeat.

Fortunately for Liverpool, he has not missed any Premier League games since the club’s last two contests were postponed.

Klopp has stated that he will be sidelined until at least until the break, and Liverpool supporters will hope that this is not the case.

Jordan Henderson 

The club captain has yet to play in September due to a hamstring injury he sustained in the team’s 2-1 victory over Newcastle at the end of August.

After an injury to Kalvin Phillips, Gareth Southgate summoned him up to the national squad on short notice. He should be fit to play after the international break.

Given his availability for England, it is reasonable to assume that the 32-year-old has regained full fitness.

Arthur Melo 

Arthur has struggled with match fitness since his transfer from Juventus on the transfer deadline, limiting him to the bench during his time with the club.

During the international break, he has worked diligently to acquire this level of sharpness, including recently playing for the under-21 team against Rochdale. 

It remains to be seen if Klopp will be impressed by his development, but he is more likely to be considered now than a few weeks ago.

Ibrahima Konate 

During preseason, Konate suffered a knee injury, although he is expected to play against Brighton. 

In recent weeks, he has accelerated his recuperation and was anticipated to be fit to play in the postponed match against Chelsea, so there should be no problems today.

Naby Keita 

The scenario surrounding the midfielder who has been struggling for weeks with an unidentified ailment is the least clear. 

He has been removed from the team’s Champions League roster, indicating that a protracted absence is possible, although Klopp has indicated that he might return in October, so it may not be too long until he is back in Red.

Curtis Jones 

The young midfielder has been dealing with the consequences of a stress fracture to his tibia with Klopp saying the club need be careful with the issue.

 As a result, the Reds have established no timescale on his comeback thus it could still be a while until he returns.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain 

The Englishman suffered a major hamstring injury during pre-season and has not been seen since. 

He is not scheduled to return until at least the end of next month – although this could be even longer considering the seriousness of his problem.

Caoimhin Kelleher

The back-up ‘keeper has been missing since the first day of pre-season with a groin injury but he looks poised to return soon after being spotted in training.

International manager Stephen Kenny has given a favorable update stating: “The good thing is he’s making good progress and is back very soon.” Suggesting the Anfield faithful will not need to worry about Adrian needing to make an appearance for much longer.
