Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has an unforeseen new problem for the Brentford game.

Liverpool faces pressure to stay up with Manchester City and Tottenham at the top of the Premier League.


Though he was spoiled for choice earlier in the season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is facing an unexpected scarcity of midfield players ahead of their match against Brentford on Sunday. Due to two new injury worries, Klopp is now playing catch-up and has few options for his starting lineup.


Speaking before of Thursday’s Europa League match against Toulouse, Klopp stated that Curtis Jones’ “low grade” hamstring injury will prevent him from playing until after the international break.


Due to a knee issue, Ryan Gravenberch had to cancel the trip to France, therefore he could potentially miss out. Although starting the Dutchman from the beginning may be asking too much, Klopp hinted that he would phase him back in for the Brentford game.


Due to injuries sustained by Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic, as well as Alexis Mac Allister’s ban, the Reds are unable to field a midfield three.


Dominik Szoboszlai has been amazing since leaving RB Leipzig in the summer, but he was clearly tired during the 1-1 tie with Luton Town this past weekend.


Nevertheless, the Hungarian is probably going to get a start due to the lack of midfielders. Trent Alexander-Arnold might be moved in from the right, Cody Gakpo could be dropped back into midfield, and the other two top candidates are Wataru Endo and Harvey Elliott.
