Nathaniel Clyne is injured again, just one match into making his long awaited comeback.
The Englishman hadn’t featured all season before the Merseyside Derby, but according to Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp, the fullback is unavailable for tomorrow’s Anfield tie with Bournemouth.
“It’s quite difficult at the moment, we must wait pretty much [every] five minutes for some news. At the moment it looks OK,” he told the official website.
“Unfortunately, I think, not 100 per cent sure, that Raggy felt a little bit [something] muscle-wise. And Clyney [is], probably, out. [He felt an injury] in training the day after the game.
“Bobby had a little [issue] with his neck but should be OK, I think.”
With Joe Gomez also out, this means Trent Alexander-Arnold will continue at right-back, having done so brilliantly in the two ties against Manchester City in the Champions League quarters.
We have no worries about this, but it would have nice to use Clyne a few times in the Premier League before our crunch ties with AS Roma in the semis.
We draw the Italians this afternoon, and they head to Anfield on April 24th for the first leg.
What an occasion it’s going to be.
