Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given a much-needed update on the Reds’ injury situation with Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones out for the next few months, and Alisson Becker for the foreseeable future.

During a press conference before the Reds’ game at home to Luton Town tomorrow night, the Liverpool manager said: “Not great, I would like to say no issues but we have some.

“Not available: Ali, muscle injury, we don’t know how long it will take but definitely not the foreseeable time coming back.

“Then we have Diogo with a knee issue is ruled out. Curtis, with a bone/ligament issue, is ruled out.

“With others, we ill deal with it day by day. With muscle things, we will see for tomorrow. If you see the line-up early enough you can see who made it and who didn’t make it. That’s it, pretty much.”

Liverpool star-man Mohammed Salah is also rumoured to be out for tomorrow’s game as well as the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea this Sunday based on reports from his home nation of Egypt, but Klopp is yet to confirm the situation.

Liverpool will struggle for squad depth

Should this be the case, Liverpool will struggle for squad depth in both midfield and attack, with Luis Diaz and Cody Gakpo being the only senior attackers confirmed to be available for this week’s matches as Darwin Nunez was substituted at half-time against Brentford as a precaution.

The midfield will also struggle with key players such as Dominik Szoboszlai and Curtin Jones out, leaving Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch and Harvey Eliott being the only fit senior midfielders, though Elliot may also need to be deployed on the right wing to support the front line.
