Liverpool injury news: SIX out for Liverpool vs Bournemouth? Who is unavailable? | Football | Sport


Liverpool are under pressure to get a result this weekend after slipping to second in the Premier League table.

The Reds are level on points with Manchester City – and have a game in hand – but have been overtaken on goal difference after Pep Guardiola’s men beat Everton on Wednesday.

Liverpool take on Bournemouth at Anfield this weekend and Jurgen Klopp will be keen to get back to winning ways.

His men have drawn their last two games 1-1 against Leicester and West Ham.

Adding to Klopp’s worries are the mounting injuries among his squad.

Six players could be ruled out of the game on Saturday with several likely to have started if deemed fit.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is close to making a return after being included in the Reds’ squad for the rest of their Champions League campaign.

Express Sport rounds up the latest Liverpool injury news ahead of their clash with Bournemouth.

Liverpool injury news – who is out?

Jordan Henderson (muscular) and Georginio Wijnaldum (knee) are major doubts for the game.

Klopp is uncertain of how long they will be sidelined but – while not major injuries – they aren’t expected to feature against the Cherries.

Dejan Lovren continues to be ruled out with a hamstring problem while young star Trent Alexander-Arnold is unlikely to be rushed back.

Joe Gomez remains out with a broken ankle while Oxlade-Chamberlain could return next month following a serious ACL injury.

Jurgen Klopp quotes ahead of Liverpool vs Bournemouth

He told reporters: “Gini and Hendo, both would’ve played [against West Ham] and then they cannot play.

“That’s not too cool, I don’t know how long it will take.

“That’s the situation, that was always clear. It’s a long season and you have to deal with the situation.

“When players are in, all the players are there, then you maybe have a bit of a headache making the line-up, who wants to start, who you leave out.

“If you don’t have them that makes line-ups easier, but it leaves you short of options.”
