Last season for Liverpool can be summed up by one word: injuries. The Reds lost key players in their droves yet somehow Jürgen Klopp’s side managed to finish third in the league – a truly remarkable feat. We’ve already suffered fitness blows this year. Thankfully, James Pearce has delivered an encouraging Roberto Firmino injury update.
Liverpool injury worries
Last season has left some Kopites overly concerned with squad depth.
It is only understandable given the sheer ridiculousness of the injury crisis which unfolded.
The Reds resorted to midfielders in the heart of the defence, to deadline day panic signings and youngsters being thrust into the firing line.
Only a handful of senior stars survived the season without a prolonged spell out.
Roberto Firmino injury update
The Reds have started the season strongly. However, we’ve already seen a few key players ruled out.
Harvey Elliott will be out for the majority of the campaign at least after suffering a dislocated ankle.
Meanwhile Thiago is awaiting scans for a problem picked up during the win over Crystal Palace.
James Pearce has provided a Roberto Firmino injury update.
The journalist wrote for The Athletic that the Brazilian is set to resume full training this week.
The forward has been absent since coming off in the first half as the Reds drew with Chelsea.
What RTK has to say
Phew. Not a second too soon.
We need Bobby back in the side immediately. The boss has already shown that he’s going to be rotating this season.
Without Firmino available his rotation options in the final third are limited for European Cup and Premier League games.
Fingers crossed he’s back in time to face Porto.
