Klopp provides update on Liverpool injury list

Jurgen Klopp has given the latest update on his squad availability ahead of this weekend’s game against Nottingham Forrest.

Fresh off handing Toulouse a 5-1 thumping in the Europa League, a nearly full strength Liverpool squad will be aiming to take three more points at Anfield.


Liverpool injury news ahead of facing Nottingham Forest:

Andy Robertson

After completing surgery to his shoulder successfully this week, Andy Robertson has begun his rehabilitation.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: ‘Robbo had surgery and [it] all went well, as good as it could be, so the recovery starts.That’s it. We don’t know how long it will take or whatever, but the first step is done, that’s good.”

Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic

Both Spanish midfielders are still out, with setbacks to previous injuries plaguing the duo.

When asked if the duo were back with the squad yet in his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “No, not in team training.”

Curtis Jones

While not injured, Curtis Jones will miss the game, serving the last match of his three-game suspension, that he gained as punishment for his controversial straight red card against Tottenham Hotspur.


Ben Doak

The young winger is again absent from the Liverpool squad, due to the muscle injury he suffered whilst on international duty with Scotland’s u-21 side.

With the 17-year-old still not training, it is highly unlikely that he will make the squad for the Forest game.
