Liverpool’s latest injuries – Andy Robertson, Thiago, Stefan Bicetic and Ben Doak

After beating Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Liverpool next face Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Liverpool’s Premier League win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday means they can survive without any new injury concerns, which will be a huge boost for manager Jurgen Klopp and the club’s fans.

The Reds won 3-0 at Anfield, securing all three points with goals from Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.

Kodi Gakpo was also involved in the closing stages, but his attempt was ruled out for offside by VAR.

All eyes will now turn to Wednesday’s Carabao Cup fourth round match at Bournemouth.

There, Curtis Jones will return after serving a three-game suspension.

However, as explained below, there will be some names that Klopp will not be able to use for Wednesday match.

Andy robertson

The Liverpool left-back is expected to be out for an extended period of time after sustaining a shoulder injury while playing for Scotland during the October international break.

Robertson underwent successful surgery and will now begin a rehabilitation program, potentially hoping to return in the new year.

Klopp gave an update on the former Hull City star last week, saying: “He has had surgery and everything has gone as expected.”

We don’t know how long it will take, but the first step has been taken. ”

Possible   return   date: January 2024

Thiago Alcantara

Midfielder Thiago has not featured since April and will be out of Liverpool for six months.

The Spaniard, who underwent hip surgery towards the end of last season, has suffered another setback in his recovery and is yet to return to training.

“It’s just a nuisance, especially for (Thiago) himself,” Klopp said recently. During his rehabilitation, he suffered two setbacks, nothing major, but enough to keep him off the field again.

Obviously it’s not the same injury, it’s not exactly the same, but it’s a little similar.

“It’s just as annoying for Stefan Vaisetic. He was there, played a few minutes, then played a few minutes and felt something was different.

After a long-term injury, sometimes this Things like that happen. I don’t know and I’m not going to put any pressure on them.

It’s not possible anyway. Let’s see if they come back after the internationals (in October). Hopefully it’s cool.

Possible return date: November/December

Stefan Bagetic

Stefan Bicetić injured his adductor after a few months of suspension, so he is currently not training.

The young Spaniard made his return in the Europa League win against LASK Linz in September, and six days later played 11 minutes in the Carabao Cup match against Leicester City.

However, Bazicetic suffered another blow and has since withdrawn from the team.
Klopp said earlier this month: “It’s equally frustrating for Stefan Vaisetic. Possible return date: November

Conor bradley

The young full-back showed his potential in pre-season training in Germany, playing 90 minutes in two games.

He was then removed from the travel group to Singapore due to a stress fracture in his back.

Once fit the Northern Irishman is expected to slot into Klopp’s plans as an understudy to Alexander-Arnold, having proven himself in League One with Bolton Wanderers last year.

Klopp gave an update on his condition before the Reds’ trip to Brighton at the start of October: “Conor is on the way back, he is running, but in that age group and with these kind of injuries you tend to give them rather three weeks more than not enough because it has to do with the growing process of the body and stuff like this.

I couldn’t get this injury anymore, let me say it like that! And that’s why he needs a bit of time.”
Potential return date: December

Ben Doak

Ben Doak sustained a minor issue during the October international break, forcing him to withdraw from the Scotland under-21 squad for their UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier against Malta.

The Liverpool forward is not expected to be ruled out for a lengthy period of time and could be involved once again in November as his issue is only minor.

Commenting on the teenager’s availability ahead of the 2-0 home win over Everton, the Reds’ boss said: “Ben Doak from Scotland has a little muscle thing, so we have to see but is not available for the weekend.”
