Jurgen Klopp reveals three Liverpool players had knocks after Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp reveals three Liverpool players had knocks after Arsenal

Liverpool vs Brentford

Liverpool will return to Premier League action on Sunday when they play host to Brentford.

Despite being halfway through January, Jurgen Klopp and co. are yet to be forced to play a league game without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane this season.

The first outing which the Reds were forced to navigate without the duo was an FA Cup tie vs League One outfit Shrewsbury, which they dominated.

However, on Thursday, Liverpool took on Arsenal in the first of two League Cup semi-final legs.

And, despite having the man advantage for close to 70 minutes, the Merseysiders were unable to score, forced to settle for a 0-0 draw.

So, though Brentford are not in great form – the Bees sit 13th in the league and have conceded 30 goals this term – it will be interesting to see if Liverpool’s makeshift attack can get the job on this occasion.

Should they win, Liverpool are guaranteed to make up some ground on their title rivals as Manchester City and Chelsea are too set to face off this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp confirms trio of Liverpool knocks

Before facing Brentford, Jurgen Klopp would speak to the press on Friday.

When doing so, the German confirmed that Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and James Milner all picked up knocks against Arsenal.

However, crucially, he added that the medical team assured that all are fine, and should be available to feature this weekend:

“As far as I know, no new real injuries. Knocks last night, Virg, Robbo, Milly, but directly after the game, medical team said all are fine. We will see. No ‘injuries’ so far. Same squad available.”
