Liverpool suffer double injury blow ahead of Brentford, Klopp will be gutted - opinion

Liverpool have been dealt a double injury blow ahead of their Premier League clash with Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium this evening.

What’s the word?

Jurgen Klopp revealed that he is set to be without midfielders Thiago and Naby Keita for the trip to west London after the pair picked up recent fitness issues.

“It’s not 100% clear. It’s a muscle in the calf,” the German said when asked about Thiago’s injury in Friday’s press conference. “It’s an issue, obviously. After the international break probably. I don’t think it would be anything earlier.”

The 54-year-old then addressed Keita’s foot problem which saw him substituted in the midweek victory over Norwich City in the Carabao Cup.

“Nothing serious, but it keeps him out of Brentford, for sure. A little longer maybe, we will see. It’s painful, and we have to see how he deals with it. Not cool. A good pre-season, and played a lot of games but it happens,” Klopp confirmed.

However, it’s not all bad news for Liverpool. First-choice right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to return following a short illness, while striker Roberto Firmino has resumed training and is in contention to feature.

Speaking to liverpoolfc.com at the AXA Training Centre on Thursday afternoon, Klopp said: “Trent was not injured, Trent was a little bit ill. He’s back in training, trained yesterday, and will be fine.

“Bobby trained already for two or three days, so he is back in contention, let me say it like this. We used him a little bit as a ‘joker’ (in training).”

Jurgen Klopp will be gutted

Thiago and Keita’s enforced absences will leave Klopp without three of his central midfielders following the dislocated ankle suffered by Harvey Elliott earlier in the month.

As a result, the former Borussia Dortmund boss is likely to be feeling gutted as his team’s fast start to 2021/22 threatens to be derailed by another string of injury issues.

Victory against Brentford would make it five consecutive wins in all competitions for Liverpool, but their task has been made significantly harder due to their growing list of absentees.
