Liverpool injury update

Here is the latest Liverpool injury news ahead of their next outing.

Alexis Mac Allister missed Liverpool’s win over Crystal Palace after picking up a knee issue against Sheffield United.

The midfielder needed stitches on a cut before he was forced off at Bramall Lane and is not expected to be risked in the dead-rubber Europa League match against Union SG on Thursday, leaving him in a race to recover in time for Manchester United’s visit on Sunday.

“Macca doesn’t look good, so we have to see day by day,” said Jurgen Klopp ahead of the trip to Crystal Palace. “They were pretty hopeful after the game that it was not serious. It’s not that serious, but in the period of the year if you are out for five days, it’s 12 games pretty much.”

Diogo Jota has been out of action since the draw with Manchester City last month.

The forward has been running outside as he continues his recovery from a muscle injury, and Klopp hinted about a timeline for Jota’s return when asked how he would cope with Mohamed Salah’s absence in January during the Africa Cup of Nations:

“No, I didn’t think about it to be honest and I can’t change it anyway,” Klopp said. “I have no real plans for it. It’s January, right? I hope Diogo is back then.”

A shoulder injury picked up while on international duty in October has kept Andy Robertson on the sidelines in recent weeks.

The left-back was forced to undergo surgery after dislocating his shoulder playing for Scotland and it was reported at the time that he would be out for up to three months.
