OH NO: Key player just got injured before clash with Manchester City

A crucial trip to Manchester City awaits the Reds following the international break.


Liverpool is only one point behind Manchester City in the Premier League standings going into the international break.


Following such a challenging season the previous time around, Jurgen Klopp’s team is back to something akin to their best.


Their 100% record at Anfield was maintained on Sunday with a 3-0 victory against Brentford, and they have an exciting trip to Manchester City coming up after the international break.


Nevertheless, the German has pledged to treat the Europa League seriously and is making attempts to mount challenges on several fronts.




In light of that, let’s take a look at the most recent Liverpool injuries.


Solomon Konate

Due to his absence from the Sunday’s victory, Ibrahima Konate has withdrawn from the France team that is scheduled to play Gibraltar and Greece during the international break.


Ibrahima Konaté suffered a minor muscular injury during the warm-up of Liverpool’s Europa League match against Toulouse on Thursday. As a result, he was unable to play for Liverpool this weekend, according to a statement released by the French FA.


After consulting with the French team’s physician, Dr. Franck Le Gall, regarding Ibrahima Konaté’s injury, which required almost two weeks of therapy, Didier Deschamps documented Konaté’s withdrawal.

Jones, Curtis

Even with several midfield additions this summer, Curtis Jones’ value at Liverpool is increasing.


However, the England U21 international sustained a “low grade” hamstring injury at Bournemouth during the Carabao Cup victory.

Curtis suffered from a minor hamstring strain. He will return after the international break, but not before. This week, Klopp stated, “It’s a low, low-grade hamstring.”


“After receiving a red card for lack of rhythm and winning the games, he was in fantastic shape but felt a touch off. When I took him off against Bournemouth, he was resting in the dressing room and felt something, but he didn’t feel anything there. We had a very low-grade scan, but it cleared him.



Ryan Gravenberch, a summer signing, has been sidelined for the past two games due to a minor knee ailment, but there is hope that he will be available for the City match. “Ryan got a little niggle in the knee, nothing major,” Klopp said on Wednesday. “He was running today (Wednesday). We hope there’s a chance for Brentford and he will definitely be back after the international break but that doesn’t help now for today. That’s why he’s not here (Toulouse).” Prospective return date: Saturday 25 November vs Manchester City Andy Robertson;


Andy Robertson, a key defender, underwent surgery last month to treat a shoulder injury he suffered while playing for Scotland.

Antonio Alcantara

Thiago’s injury issues are still present. After undergoing hip surgery in the summer, he hasn’t made an appearance this season and isn’t anticipated to return before the New Year.




Earlier this month, Klopp stated, “With Thiago it is slightly different, it’s an ongoing thing and we cannot put any kind of pressure on there as well.”


We anticipate his return, which will most likely occur at the beginning of the New Year. Since November has already arrived, that would imply an additional four weeks. To be honest, I’m eager for him to return, and I think it’s definitely a feasible thing to try.


He really is an amazing player. I know you’re asking, but there isn’t anything that can be updated on a weekly basis at this time because not much will change.
