Liverpool vs West Ham- Team News
James Milner is still out with a hamstring injury, and the veteran is unlikely to return until after the international break. He might be available for the clash against Arsenal on November 20.
Naby Keita will be “out for a long” with a hamstring ailment, according to Klopp. It is doubtful that the midfielder will be ready to return until 2022.
Harvey Elliott is expected to return to the pitch before the end of the 2021-22 season while continuing to recuperate from a catastrophic ankle injury.
Roberto Firmino suffered a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid in the champions league fixture. Hence it is still unclear as he may miss the majority of the season.
Curtis Jones missed out against Atletico due to an eye injury that he had suffered in training. Therefore, the midfielder remains a doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash with West Ham.
Joe Gomez was absent from the squad against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday owing to a calf injury, and the defender is likely to miss several weeks.
There’s no suspended player for Liverpool.
The injury list is indeed very long, with key players missing, it is yet again a challenging task for Klopp to name his side for the weekend clash. The German won’t face any problem in defence but midfield continues its woes for the Reds. However, with an injury boost of Thiago and Fabinho, Liverpool surely has some relief.
