Watch Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool are facing massive injury problems as he list 8 players in doubt for opening Premier League clash against Fulham
According to reports, up to eight Liverpool players may not play in the club’s debut Premier League game against Fulham in 2022-23.
On Saturday, August 6, the Reds will go to Craven Cottage to face the recently promoted team.
However, according to Liverpool World, they might be without a few starters and a handful of other players.
The most significant probable absence is that of starting goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
The Brazilian has been sidelined since his team’s inaugural preseason game against Manchester United because of an injury.
Caoimhin Kelleher, the shot-backup, stopper’s sustained an injury while serving abroad in June.
Alisson is anticipated to be available for Liverpool’s match against Fulham, according to Jurgen Klopp, who spoke to the club’s official website.
The German strategist added that it might take Kelleher two to three weeks to regain his previous level of fitness.
The Reds’ training camp in Austria was missed by Portuguese attacker Diogo Jota, who is also out with a muscular issue.
In their FA Community Shield match against Manchester City, Curtis Jones (unspecified injury) and Naby Keita (sickness) were both absent.
Additionally, the pair might not play against Fulham. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, another one of their midfielders, injured his hamstring in the 2-0 preseason victory over Crystal Palace.
The Englishman’s injury was described by Klopp as “severe” (as of 90 minutes), and he is expected to miss their Premier League opener.
According to reports, Kostas Tsimikas sustained an injury while on tour with Liverpool in Austria.
And last, during their final preseason matchup against RC Strasbourg, Ibrahima Konate hobbled off.
Fortunately, Klopp said it didn’t look “too worrying” on the club’s official website.
