A wave of good news in the Red half of the Merseyside as Liverpool receives comeback news for a defender.
The Premier League to return this weekend
This weekend marks the return of the Premier League after an even more prolonged absence for certain clubs.
Two weeks of the calendar are dedicated to the international break. Though, Premier League play was also halted by Queen Elizabeth II’s death. This indicates that, incredibly, Liverpool haven’t participated in a Premier League match since their 0-0 tie with Everton on September 3.
Liverpool’s first Premier League match in over a month will be this weekend against Brighton. And the scousers can’t wait.
The much-awaited return of the Liverpool defender
This weekend, Ibrahima Konate may make a comeback for Liverpool, according to rumours that he has been granted the all-clear.
Due to the lengthy delay for a Premier League match, Liverpool’s injury woes may have somewhat subsided. Several Liverpool players had been either recovering from injuries or watching from the sidelines. One such player is the defender Ibrahima Konate. He suffered an injury during a preseason match against Strasbourg.
Konate could not begin the season because of the setback, and he hasn’t been seen since. After that, Joe Gomez took over and experienced some significant ups and downs while Joel Matip filled in but also sustained an injury. Konate should once more be available for choice this weekend, it appears.
Assumptions prior to the Brighton match
Virgil van Dijk will probably be partnered at the back by Matip or Gomez, but having a strong player like Konate return to the ranks only strengthens Liverpool’s depth.
In order for Liverpool to truly get their Premier League season off to a strong start, Konate’s return after more than two months away is a huge boost. Konate is an amazing talent who has already demonstrated the makings of a star.
