Naby Keita

Liverpool injury news fabinho, keita

Jurgen Klopp may be concerned about an injury in the upcoming Liverpool match.

The Reds scored their biggest win in 100 years after beating Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.

Liverpool won comfortably, but the match left some injury problems for the club and Klopp.

Here’s a recap of Anfield’s current injury situation ahead of a match against Preston North End in this week’s Carabao Cup.

Naby keita injury news

Nabi Keita received a red card challenge from Paul Pogba and was stretched out of Old Trafford until the middle of the second half.

Liverpool have yet to reveal the extent of Keita’s injury, and Klopp initially said it would take 48 hours to confirm the results of the test.

“It’s okay because you’re handsome,” Pep Leenders told Liverpoolfc.com.

Given the fact that Keita has played every game since his last national break, it’s unlikely he’ll face Preston if Keita is healthy, but we’re waiting to see the extent of his injury.

Fabinho

One of the names remaining on the team sheet was Fabinho when Klopp chose Liverpool to face Manchester United. This has raised concerns among supporters.

The Brazilian has suffered a minor knee problem, and it remains to be seen when the midfielder can return.

“Faviño will not be ready for tomorrow’s game,” Leenders said. “We will continue to evaluate him every day. I hope he plays on Saturday.”

The problem doesn’t seem too serious, as Fabinho suffered an injury in the second half after Liverpool lost to Atlético Madrid in the Champions League last week.

James Milner

Another midfield concern is James Milner, who suffered from hamstring problems during Liverpool’s win at Old Trafford.

The 36-year-old spent the last 27 minutes grabbing his hamstrings before descending, and we’re waiting to see how long the veteran will be away.

Liverpool assistant manager Pep Leanders said: “Millie felt something. He felt there was something wrong with her hamstrings. She was a little tight.

“Then [Mason] Greenwood started doing this and decided, ‘I have to get him.’” “Mili always puts the team first. And he has the biggest injury in that moment. That run.”

Hamstring injuries can vary in severity, so Liverpool hope Milner recovers quickly.

Harvey Elliot

The 18-year-old, on a long-term absence from Liverpool, is still recovering from a dislocated ankle he suffered in an away game against Leeds United on 12 September.

Elliott underwent successful surgery on the injury and is currently in early recovery stages and the club hopes the teenager can play again this season.

The latest update saw Elliott riding an exercise bike without support for an injured ankle.

Thiago Alcantara

The Liverpool midfielder suffered a calf injury on 18 September during a match against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Thiago has missed seven games since then, but Klopp says he is improving during light training at Kirkby.

Leenders said: “[Thiago] is closer to coaching the team than ever before. He will lead the team later in the week. Brighton may have come too early, but especially given our circumstances, he It’s good to be back.”
