Liverpool’s Injury Problems Won’t Worry Klopp

                                              Liverpool’s Injury Problems Won’t Worry Klopp

Liverpool return to action this weekend at Southampton as they hope to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League, the Reds are sitting proudly at the top for the first time in two years and expectations are high after an impressive run of form.

But another international break leaves supporters wondering whether they can pick up where they left off a couple of weeks ago.

The rampant 6-1 win over Watford has the fans wanting more, and it has been a long two weeks waiting on the next fixture.

The biggest concern for managers and supporters alike regarding international breaks is the worry about players picking up injuries, especially from a Liverpool point of view, because they’ve had more than their fair share, and once again they are left cursing their luck with Adam Lallana picking up an injury playing for England against Spain on Tuesday night, and recent reports suggest Coutinho has also picked up an injury whilst on duty for Brazil after sightings of him in hospital yesterday.

Lallana and Coutinho have been two of Liverpool’s most influential players this season and the news comes as a big disappointment to Reds’ supporters.

In the recent past, injuries to key players would be a disaster for Liverpool, but Klopp has built a strong squad and I’m sure he isn’t too worried about the unfortunate injury news to his players.

Klopp has everyone fighting for a place in the team at the moment and if Lallana and Coutinho are unable to play then it gives others a chance to stake a claim for a place in the first team.

Obvious replacements to step in to the injured players’ boots are Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge, and they are not bad replacements, and they are both desperate to play.

Liverpool will still have a strong team despite their injury problems for the trip to Southampton and this is the impressive factor that Klopp has implemented at Liverpool, the squad is strong enough to compete for honours this season, and relying on certain players anymore.
