How bad can one team’s luck be? Seriously. Liverpool have been going through a hellish patch with injuries in recent weeks. We’ve seen some of our best players ruled out for lengthy periods due to the hectic schedule and the recklessness of opponents. Liverpool fans have reacted to the latest Joe Gomez injury update.
Liverpool injury crisis
So far this season Jürgen Klopp has lost 13 first team players to injury.
The Reds boss has seen his squad drop like flies and yet nobody in power seems to care – his pleas for extra substitutions have been ignored, despite backing from elsewhere in the game.
Thiago has been ruled out due to COVID and a petulant Richarlison tackle.
Alisson picked up a shoulder injury in training.
Virgil van Dijk will miss the rest of the season after Jordan Pickford ruptured the defender’s ACL.
Joel Matip has been in and out of the side because that is just what he does apparently.
Fabinho has also been ruled out recently, along with the Scouser in our team Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Joe Gomez injury update
The Reds have now lost another centre back for a lengthy spell.
Liverpool have issued a Joe Gomez injury update after the defender picked up a knee injury in England training.
The defender underwent successful surgery on his knee and his now in the rehabilitation stage of his recovery.
He is expected to miss a significant portion of the season, though the club has refused to rule out him playing again this term.
