REVEALED: Gravenberch, Konate, Jones potential return date Finalized

A few important players may be back for Jurgen Klopp’s big matchup with Manchester City.


Following the international break, Liverpool will play Manchester City in a crucial Premier League match.


The free-scoring Reds, who have mostly played well this season, are now up against the toughest test of their renewed reputation as title contenders.


With a commanding 3-0 victory over Brentford at the fortress of Anfield last time out, Jurgen Klopp’s team recovered from a challenging few days. Mohamed Salah’s game-winning goal at the interval effectively eliminated the memory of the shock Europa League defeat by Toulouse and the draw at Luton.


With one or two players on the edge of recovering from injuries, things may get even better for Liverpool right now. However, there is still a long way to go until other important players return to action, and there is still some doubt around a few more.


Below are the most recent injuries to Liverpool players and their anticipated return dates.


Ryan Gravenberch

Since moving from Bayern Munich to Merseyside in the summer, the Dutch midfielder has been a tremendous hit. However, he was sidelined against Brentford and Toulouse due to a slight knee injury, according to Klopp.


If nothing untoward has happened since then, Gravenberch should be able to play against City on Saturday.


Possible return date: November 25 on Saturday against Manchester City


Similar to Konate, Gomez was an unanticipated absence from the matchday roster for the Brentford game, and as of right now, we don’t know much about the nature or extent of his problem.


After that match against the Bees, Klopp had only one thing to say about Konate and Gomez: “Yeah, both for injury reasons as well.”


“We’ll assess the severity, but they weren’t accessible today.”


It is quite hard to estimate when versatile defender Gomez might make a comeback until we hear more from the Liverpool manager.

Andy Robertson: The veteran left-back Robertson is anticipated to be sidelined until the New Year after sustaining a shoulder injury while playing for Scotland internationally last month.


Before the exciting Sunday night draw between the Tartan Army, who are off to Euro 2024, and Norway, he provided an update to Viaplay Sports, saying: “I’m getting there, slowly and surely.” The most important thing was that the surgery went well and there were no aftereffects.

I simply need to take things little by little and week by week. It’s going great so far—it’s been three weeks since my operation. So far, everything has gone smoothly, and perhaps this will continue. Hopefully, I’ll be back on the grass in no time.”


When asked when he would return, Robertson said, “I haven’t looked that far ahead yet. Just trying to go week by week is all I’m doing. Since I’m not the best injured, I’m trying to accept little victories each and every week and try not to become upset.


“I don’t want to plan a game in my head only to abandon it or return before then. I’m just going to take things slowly at first, but eventually I’ll have to start pushing, and when that moment comes, I’ll do all in my power to get onto the field as soon as possible.”


Possible date of return: January 2024

Curtis Jones Jones has been out since the beginning of November due to a hamstring injury. He last participated in the Carabao Cup victory at Bournemouth.


But earlier this month, Klopp stated that he anticipated the 22-year-old returning to action after the international break.

Alcantara Thiago

An major source of frustration for Liverpool is the difficulty to keep key midfield player Thiago healthy and productive for any length of time.


Due to multiple setbacks, the injury-plagued Spaniard has not played a single game since April. It seems unlikely that he will return from his chronic hip trouble until the New Year at the latest.


“Thiago is a continuous issue. We can’t exert additional pressure there,” Klopp stated earlier this month in reference to Thiago.


“However, we anticipate his return sometime around the beginning of the New Year.

“November has already arrived. That would entail an additional four weeks, but I think that would be a reasonable attempt. I am really happy to see him again. The player is simply outstanding.


“I understand why you ask but we can’t have a week by week update because it will not change a lot in this moment.”


Possible date of return: January 2024


Stefan Bajcetic, an Academy-graduated midfielder, had a fantastic 2022–2023 season before an adductor injury early in March tragically ended it.

Following setbacks, the Spaniard has only made two appearances since, and Klopp is unclear of when he will be ready to use him once more.
