Liverpool’s recent 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest showcased their resilience amidst injury challenges, with key players sidelined. Here’s the latest on their injury status:

Mo Salah: Salah’s absence due to a muscle injury sustained during the Africa Cup of Nations hasn’t deterred Liverpool’s form. However, Klopp anticipates his return for the crucial clash against Manchester City, potentially even featuring in the Europa League fixture against Sparta Prague. Return Date: 10th March

Alisson: Caoimhin Kelleher has deputized admirably in Alisson’s absence, but Klopp eagerly awaits the Brazilian goalkeeper’s return from a hamstring injury. While unlikely this month, Alisson’s comeback is anticipated in early April. Return Date: Early April

Diogo Jota: Jota’s knee injury has kept him sidelined since the Brentford game, with his return timeline less certain. Klopp remains cautious about rushing his comeback, prioritizing Jota’s recovery over immediate returns. Return Date: Mid-late April

Trent Alexander-Arnold: Alexander-Arnold’s knee injury has seen Conor Bradley shine in his absence. Klopp values Alexander-Arnold’s versatility, potentially deploying him in midfield upon his return. Speculation suggests he could feature after the March international break against Brighton. Return Date: 31st March

Ryan Gravenberch: Gravenberch’s injury scare during the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea, while initially concerning, appears less severe than feared. Klopp is optimistic about his recovery, though no specific return date has been provided. Return Date: Unknown

As Liverpool navigates through injury challenges, Klopp remains hopeful for the return of key players as they push forward in both domestic and European competitions.
