Not another long injury layoff period

Thank goodness it’s only a ‘minor issue’ for our No.17 who has had some truly horrific luck of late when it comes to absences from the squad.

The England youth international had been absent from the side for the prior three league ties after earning a three-game suspension during the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham.

With Ryan Gravenberch having impressed since, however, one might imagine the 22-year-old has some serious competition on his hands for a starting slot.

It’s a welcome selection headache for Jurgen Klopp at any rate!
