Posted by

Liverpool look set to be without Luis Diaz until after the World Cup, which would see the former FC Porto man miss as many as 10 games.

This comes courtesy of a tweet from Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano after the 25-year-old suffered a knee injury in North London.

The Merseysiders succumbed to their second league defeat of the campaign – a result that sees Jurgen Klopp’s men remain in 10th place in the English top-flight.

It’s not a dreadful run of fixtures, though the eye does catch on upcoming meetings with Manchester City, Napoli and Tottenham ahead of the Qatar World Cup.

As one of our most hard-working and genuinely in-form talents available at the moment, it’s a blow of epic proportions for us within the wider context of repeated poor performances from other world-class members of the squad.

Likely, it will mean a reversion to a 4-3-3 to avoid putting further pressure on our forward options.
