The Reds will look to build on Saturday’s 4-1 win over Leicester City as they take to Stamford Bridge for the first fixture of the weekend.
After producing an emphatic display against the champions at Anfield, taking on Antonio Conte’s title contenders will be another major test of Liverpool‘s credentials.
The 35-year-old received treatment immediately at full-time, and then left the Liberty Stadium on crutches, which is unlikely to be a good sign for Conte as he prepares for Friday’s clash.
However, speaking on Terry’s injury, the Italian remained hopeful it wasn’t a serious issue.
“I don’t know the extent of the injury but tomorrow we will see the situation about his ankle,” he said. “But he is a warrior and I am not worried.”
Milner missed the first game of the season as a result, despite his remarkable fitness—something he shares with Terry.
He would likely be replaced by summer signing David Luiz, an impressive footballer but an erratic defensive presence, who would likely partner Gary Cahill at centre-back.
The likes of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana intertwined in an unstoppable forward charge, with Georginio Wijnaldum and Klopp’s full-backs, Milner and Nathaniel Clyne, providing welcome support.
