Liverpool injury crisis

I’ve never seen anything like the current Liverpool injury crisis.

The Reds have lost over a dozen players to injuries during this season.

It is hard to keep count, some say 13 players, others says 16, though that may be 13 players and 16 injuries.

Whatever the tally, it is an incredible one for this stage of the season.

Virgil van Dijk is out for the duration of the season, Joe Gomez may return just before the end of the campaign.

 

Meanwhile Thiago has been set back by COVID and a petulant Richarlison tackle and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s calf couldn’t keep up with the schedule.

Jordan Henderson injury

England took on Belgium in their Nations League group this weekend.

The Three Lions fell to a 2-0 defeat with the Belgians just far too good for them.

At half time the Reds’ captain was brought off for Harry Winks.

After the game the Jordan Henderson injury was confirmed as Gareth Southgate said that the midfielder felt some tightness and couldn’t continue.

We are currently waiting to find out the extent of the problem with the midfielder to undergo an assessment.
