Jurgen Klopp has issued an injury update on James Milner, Dejan Lovren, and Marko Grujic ahead of our game against Arsenal on Sunday.
Unfortunately, he revealed Milner is almost certain to miss the clash – but on the bright side, the Croat and the Serbian should both be fit.
“With Millie we have to wait. It’s better than we all expected after the (Barcelona) game when we saw him walking out of the stadium on crutches – that’s not the best picture you want to see after a game,” explained Klopp.
“On Sunday he felt better, on Monday he felt better. It’s a bruise in the heel, so that’s really painful and I can say that when it is too painful for Millie, then it’s really painful.” (Echo)
Milner started at left-back against Barcelona last weekend, but was replaced by Alberto Moreno before the break.
The Spanish full-back is virtually guaranteed to be named as left-back at the Emirates.
The German had better news on Lovren and Grujic:
“There is no problem – Dejan has been completely normal in training. Marko was back in training on Thursday, it was not serious as I mentioned after the game – painful but not serious.”
Lovren appeared to pick up a slight knock at the end of the win over Barca, while Grujic was injured the next day against Mainz.
Klopp will now have a selection headache – who should partner Emre Can in midfield? Let us know your thoughts down below…
