Liverpool can’t catch a break. The Reds have been by far and away the hardest hit team in terms of injuries this season. Jürgen Klopp has been without key players for most of the campaign and things aren’t getting any easier. The boss has confirmed the Naby Keita injury will keep him out of the trip to Newcastle United.
Liverpool injury crisis
Have you ever seen anything like it?
The Reds have been utterly devastated by injuries this season.
Jürgen Klopp has seen a majority of his first team consigned to the treatment table at one time or another this term.
Virgil van Dijk has been the greatest loss, the Dutchman ruptured his ACL in the Merseyside Derby and hasn’t been seen since.

His centre back partner Joe Gomez has also dropped out with a knee problem.
Thiago is another star absent since the Merseyside Derby.
Meanwhile Joel Matip has limped off again and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is only just returning from a knock picked up in pre-season.
Naby Keita injury
How many times do we have to type ‘Naby Keita injury’?
The Guinean midfielder was once again absent from the matchday squad this weekend after he dropped out with a ‘fitness issue’.
The boss has since given a clearer picture of the problem.
Jürgen Klopp confirmed Keita has a muscle injury which will keep him out of the trip to Newcastle United.
What RTK has to say
Another week, another Naby Keita injury.
The Guinean can never stay fit for a few games in a row.
He’s such a talented midfielder yet he just can’t get a run of games.
At this point we need to look at cashing in and cutting our losses.
Availability is more important than ability at this rate and his availability is shocking.
