Nunez fitness doubt, LeBron collab leak & 2 ‘Best’ nominations – Latest LFC News

The Reds’ injury woes continue with Darwin Nunez in doubt for the trip to Brighton, while leaked images of Nike’s collaborating with Liverpool x LeBron James make for interesting viewing.


Nunez’s “unspecified issue”

Injuries have not been in short supply at Liverpool with 22 different players having been sidelined for one reason or another this season.

Nunez’s name is already on that list but he could be set to take his missed games tally to two due to an “unspecified issue” that has seen him miss training sessions.

The forward was noticeably absent from Thursday’s session and the Times‘ Paul Joyce has since reported he is “a doubt” for the trip to Brighton, though the issue is said not to be “overly serious.”

It’s a blow Liverpool do not need with Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz all still sidelined, meaning we could see a Mo SalahCody GakpoAlex Oxlade-Chamberlain front three at the AMEX.

There was some positive news to emerge, though, with James Milner back in training after missing the last four games with a hamstring injury.

That witch is back in the building for Liverpool but here’s hoping Nunez is still with a chance of being available to Klopp over the weekend and not sidelined indefinitely as we’ve come to discover with ‘minor’ fitness issues!


Not exactly easy on the eye…

  • Links to Sofyan Amrabat have gone cold and the midfielder is now said to have his sights on a move to Atletico Madrid. The interest was never concrete, was it?
  • As for FSG and any potential sale of Liverpool, the word is there has been “nothing real” when it comes to bids.
