Curtis Jones returns to Liverpool training ahead of Arsenal clash
A ray of good news comes from Anfield as Curtis Jones makes an injury return before their match against Arsenal.
Jones recovers from injury before the Reds meet Arsenal
Prior to the Premier League match against Arsenal, Curtis Jones, a midfielder for Liverpool, has resumed full training, according to manager Jurgen Klopp.
This season, the Reds have struggled with injuries, especially in the midfield, and Jones has been one of those players who has been out for an extended amount of time.
The 21-year-old has only appeared once this season, and even that came as a late substitution in the Community Shield victory against Manchester City.
But as of right now, it appears like he will be competing for playing time against Arsenal on Sunday in a crucial match for both teams.
A probable option for Klopp?
One of the most important games of the season thus far will take place on Sunday when Liverpool travels to the Gunners to face the league’s top-ranked team.
While Jones won’t start the game at the Emirates, having him as a bench option in the second half might be invaluable given the possibility of a fast-paced game that requires new legs as the clock runs out.
Liverpool’s injury problems suddenly seem to be getting better, and the Englishman’s comeback provides Klopp with some much-needed midfield options once more. That part of the field has looked worn out so far this season, with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson not performing to their full potential.
Big day, Sunday!
The Reds travel to the Emirates for their match against Arsenal this Sunday. The Gunners have been in exceptional form this season. Currently, they are leading the Premier League table. And the Sky Blues are just behind them. A probable loss against the Reds might open up the door for Guardiola’s squad.
However, Klopp has a big game for him as the Reds have had a slow start this season. But the German boss is optimistic to come out as a victor against Arsenal this Sunday.
