“Need to bring in less injury prone options in the summer”- Fans react to Liverpool’s latest injury setbacks

Liverpool find themselves in a troublesome situation in the injury department and supporters have been left unamused by the situation.

The news emerged on Friday that both Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren had suffered setbacks in their respective recoveries, as the Reds’ fitness issues mount.

Gomez’s return from a broken leg may now be a long way off after it was revealed the club fear he may require surgery to heal the damage.

Lovren, meanwhile, is out of Monday’s trip to West Ham with a recurrence of a hamstring issue, as his injury-plagued career continues.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold also missing, Jurgen Klopp is down to the bare-bones in defence, as Liverpool look to secure a first-ever Premier League title.

Reds supporters have been reacting to the news on social media and our forums.


Some were exasperated by the situation and fear it may affect Liverpool’s title hopes…


“The Clyne loan just looks better and better now…this’ll cost us the title” – Andres Baglo Kjaer on Facebook.




A select few were more laid-back, trying to find positives…

“Matip and VVD would probably have started the West Ham game anyway. Milner will come back in at RB with Fab, Gini and Hendo in midfield, it’s not quite a crisis for Monday night but it’s perilously close to becoming one if we pick up any more injuries or suspensions”. – Steve in the TIA comments section.

“Trust your manager or go support United or City, they need more fans anyway” – Joacim Dahlstrom on Facebook.


Others highlighted the injury records of the Reds’ centre-backs and looked ahead to the summer…

“We just need to bring in less injury prone options in the summer” – Srinivas Kasturi in the TIA comments section.

“Bring in another center half in the summer and move on one of Matip or Lovren as neither have particularly good injury records or are good enough” – Sugar ray in the TIA comments section.

“We must have the most injury prone center backs in the world.” – The Infamous on the forums.
