Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be set to receive some welcome good news ahead of this Sunday’s match against table-toppers Leicester City. Liverpool were dealt a major blow last week when Joe Gomez suffered a serious knee injury which required surgery in England training. Gomez is likely to miss the majority of the rest of the season.
News about Gomez added to the blow of the anterior cruciate knee ligament injury suffered by Virgil van Dijk last month.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is also set for another few weeks on the sidelines with a calf problem.
Goalkeeper Alisson, summer signing Thiago Alcantara and midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita have all spent time out due to injury already this season.
But it appears there will finally be some good news for Klopp.

“They need to get it right because it is a huge area of the pitch to have players missing.
“You win titles on a solid defence and last season it showed. All of a sudden it has been disrupted. It is going to be a big test.
“They need to definitely sign one permanently and then maybe nick one on loan with a view to a permanent next summer.”
