Jurgen Klopp receives Triple injury boost as Liverpool prepare for Ajax clash in the UEFA Champions League
Liverpool FC fans will be so excited to hear that red superstars such as Darwin Nunez, Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate are all fit and ready to feature against Ajax on Wednesday.
According to James Pearce of The Athletic, who was quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, all three Reds stars will be eligible for the trip to Amsterdam despite missing Saturday’s humiliating Premier League loss to Nottingham Forest.
Nunez (hamstring) has scored three goals in his last four games for Jurgen Klopp’s team recently, while Ibrahima Konate experienced a little setback after his outstanding display against Rangers in the Champions League earlier this month.
Hours prior to kickoff, Spain international Thiago was ruled out of our trip to the City Ground due to an ear ailment.
Each of the three players is a crucial component of Klopp’s team, and their impending return to action is significant given that players like Joel Matip, Diogo Jota, and Luis Diaz continue to pose more serious long-term injury risks.
We failed to create any clear-cut chances from open play against Forest and lacked composure in midfield, which made the loss of our No. 6 in the middle of the pitch obvious to all.
The Midlands may have benefited from the ingenuity and vision of the former midfielder for Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Steve Cooper’s team will face a greater threat from Ajax, but we go into the matchup with the Eredivisie team knowing that a point will qualify us for the knock out stages of the prestigious competition.
