Ivan Toney injury update ahead of Brentford’s clash with Liverpool

An update on the wellbeing of Brentford star Ivan Toney has been forthcoming on Sunday evening.

For those not aware, hitman Toney sparked widespread concern across the Bees’ fanbase a little over 24 hours ago.

This came upon the 26-year-old - amid the final minutes of what proved a match-winning performance against West Ham - being forced into a premature departure from proceedings.

As the action rolled into injury time in east London, Toney rose for a header, only to land awkwardly, swiftly clutching his right knee.

After being seen to by the Brentford medical staff, it was subsequently decided that the former Newcastle United man was in no fit state to continue, culminating in Toney being stretchered from the field of play.

The forward’s status for not only his side’s upcoming meeting with Liverpool, but the weeks to follow, too, was in turn swiftly thrown up in the air.

As alluded to above, though, late on Sunday, a fresh insight into his wellbeing has been provided.

And the news will no doubt be met with collective glee on the part of Brentford’s supporter base.

This comes after Thomas Frank, during an exchange with the media, confirmed that his star attacker has not sustained any sort of ‘significant injury’.

Toney, as a result, could even be available for selection when the Bees welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to west London on Monday evening:

“There is good news with Ivan,” Frank began. “It’s no significant injury. It is potentially possible that he could be available tomorrow.

“Nothing wrong with the knee. Without going into too much detail, something around the (leg) muscle. Like a hit there. There’s no significant injury there.

“The physios explained it in detail and I completely forgot. I just remembered it was not as serious.”
