Jurgen Klopp laments Liverpool injury crisis

Jurgen Klopp has actually confessed that he’s ‘worried’ by Liverpool’s existing injury crisis following his side’s shock 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The Reds have actually stopped working to win any of their very first 3 Premier League video games to begin the 2022/23 season, drawing with Fulham and Crystal Palace prior to losing 2-1 at Old Trafford.

On Klopp’s list of absentees for the United video game were goalkeeper Caoimhim Kelleher, protectors Ibrahima Konate and Joel Matip, midfielders Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago and Naby Keita, while Diogo Jota was likewise not available in attack.

Speaking after the video game to Sky Sports, Klopp regreted his side’s current injury concerns, confessing he is frightened about getting any additional issues.

“It’s obvious we are in a tricky situation injury-wise, we get through the week with 14-15 senior players available, we have to make sure none of them get injured because there’s no real options left any more,” he stated.

“I’m concerned about our situation, it’s not easy at the moment but that’s how it is. We prepare now for Bournemouth, Newcastle and Everton – that’s how it is. We can play better, we know that, but we had a lot of good moments and performances today.

“From tomorrow, we will combat versus it.”

Klopp later gave an update on the fitness of Keita, who was ruled out of the game shortly before kick-off.

“Naby was hurt the other day,” the boss said. “We require additional evaluation however it does not appear like he’s back in training tomorrow, however we require additional evaluation. It’s simply [it happened on] Sunday and after that possibly we will understand more tomorrow, I do not understand.

“We had 15 senior outfield players in training, I think. That’s obviously not cool, but I liked the line-up for the game tonight. And we had some good performances, obviously not enough to win the game.

“But I think we all know that if we score the equaliser it would not be the biggest surprise in the world. It would have been a deserved draw after a start where United looked sharper than us, but not for too long.

“Our situation is how it is, not perfect but good enough to play better tonight and good enough to have won the game tonight had we played slightly better.”
