Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson have returned to Liverpool due to injury and will be assessed before the Arsenal game at Anfield.
When the international break followed the 3-2 West Ham defeat, fans on social media were instantly worried that things would go horribly wrong for Liverpool.
And the fact that the Reds already have two fresh injuries is further evidence to support the conspiracy theory that Liverpool are doing something wrong as far as the fitness of their players is concerned.
Mane and Hendo now join Harvey Elliott, James Milner, Naby Keita, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino on the injury list while Curtis Jones is set to return after the intl. break.
While playing for Senegal, Mane collided with a defender while he was challenging for a header with the forward now waiting on an X-Ray to determine if he suffered a broken rib.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Henderson has returned to Merseyside “for ‘further assessment of an injury’, which as of yet is unspecified.” It would be a cruel stroke of luck if both players were ruled out for the next month.
Jurgen Klopp has already had to deal with Thiago and Fabinho being absent from the starting XI and now with both fit, them being injured will only make gaining four points on Chelsea that much harder.
Liverpool need to sort themselves out in the medical department as it’s not nerve-wracking to watch the Reds play when it feels like the players are at risk of picking up an injury every game.
