Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool trio will miss West Ham clash

Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool trio will miss West Ham clash

West Ham vs Liverpool

The final Premier League fixture before the November international break will see West Ham and Liverpool face off at the London Stadium.

Both sides have enjoyed very solid starts to the season, with the clash therefore expected to be an entertaining, hard-fought affair.

Liverpool begin the weekend’s action sitting 2nd in the Premier League table. The Reds are the only side still unbeaten in the English top-flight this term, but four draws from 10 have seen Chelsea leapfrog them to the summit.

As for West Ham, they are, for the most part, coping well with a hectic European schedule, and once again look on course for a top-seven finish this campaign.

The Hammers will begin gameweek eleven sitting 4th in the Premier League table, level on points with Manchester City and just two points behind Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp on Firmino, Gomez & Jones

Ahead of his side’s meeting with West Ham, Jurgen Klopp spoke to Liverpool’s official media channel on Friday.

When doing so, the German provided a team news update. The Merseysiders have had some issues in central midfield this term, whilst Roberto Firmino also picked up a problem when Liverpool faced Atletico Madrid earlier this week.

And, speaking with an eye towards Sunday, Klopp confirmed that Firmino in fact suffered a serious hamstring injury, and will therefore be out until after the international break, which starts after this weekend’s games:

“Bobby is not good news with a serious hamstring injury, really unfortunate. We don’t know exactly how long he will be out but it will be not now after the international break directly. We have to work on that.”

Elsewhere, Klopp provided an update on the fitness of Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez, both of whom also look set to miss out against West Ham:

“Curtis is a completely different story [to Firmino], he was very unlucky in training – he got a finger that scratched the eye. I had a lot of injuries to players in my career, that was not involved. He is on the way back but we have to see how long exactly. 

“He will be back after the international break, for sure, but in the international break we have to see when he can start doing proper stuff again.

“And Joey, hopefully after the international break as well.”
