Klopp’s update on 8 injuries & the Reds who are heading to Qatar 2022 – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are now in full focus mode on preparing for the weekend with players back after international duty, individuals overcoming injuries and Arsenal looming large.


The boss reveals which of the eight are ready

Let’s start with the positives, right?

Sadio Mane is in, fit, ready, available and ready to hopefully continue his great record against the Gunners. That was the highlight from Jurgen Klopp explaining all about our latest injury status, which saw eight Reds either out or doubts.

There is a possibility that both Robbo and Hendo could make the match against Arsenal, which suggests the injuries aren’t that bad – but also begs the question of whether they should be risked at all with so many big games ahead. Especially at left-back, where Kostas is available.

Three others are getting there and might be clear to feature against Porto, while Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez are the pair still not back out on the grass in training, let alone approaching readiness for a return.
