Liverpool injury news before Man City meeting
Ahead of taking on Manchester City, Liverpool have a number of injury concerns to manage.
Midfielder Ryan Gravenberch missed out against both Toulouse and Brentford with what Jurgen Klopp described as a minor knee issue.
Provided there have been no setbacks since then, it seems likely that Gravenberch will be in contention to face Man City on Saturday.
Ibrahima Konate also missed out vs Brentford and withdrew from France duty with an apparent recurrence of a hamstring injury. Klopp did not give too much detail on the issue, though France boss Didier Deschamps said last week: “He felt something in his hamstring. He had tests, but it’s not serious.
“He needs a bit of time to not take any risks. It’s an area where he already has an injury. It wasn’t in his interest or mine [to call him up]. In the best of cases, he could have been training only Friday or Saturday.”
Finally, Andy Robertson suffered a shoulder injury on international duty with Scotland last month and required surgery that is expected to keep him out until the New Year.
