Liverpool could lose two key players through injury ahead of the Community Shield clash with Manchester City on July 30. The friendly on July 15.
Jota has recently been battling hamstring injuries after suffering one on international duty with Portugal. The star has been teaming up with his teammates in Asia for pre-season but picked up another hamstring injury instead.
At a post-match press conference (via Daily Mail), Klopp said of the forward:
“Diogo, unlucky right? He had an injury from the end of last season. He trained fully yesterday but got injured again. It’s really not cool. Now we have to wait for the results. He had an assessment this morning, so we’re going to do it.” must see. It’s in the same area.”
Meanwhile, according to Klopp, Alisson could beat the race in time for the Manchester City clash. He said:
“Ali has a chance for the game against Man City, Diogo doesn’t. It’s nothing serious with Ali but we’re preparing for the whole season. It’s just not ideal. He can’t do goalkeeper training with it and shouldn’t play.” at this moment, but he can still do some other things. These things happen. Just a little thing, but we have to be careful.
Liverpool started the pre-season in poor form, losing 4-0 to rivals Manchester United in Thailand on 12 July. However, they bounced back with a win over Crystal Palace and hope to continue against RB Leipzig on July 21.
Liverpool stun Crystal Palace with 2-0 win: match report
Liverpool clinched a comfortable 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in their pre-season friendly on Friday. The Reds looked confident and in control as they shoved Patrick Vieira’s men aside.
The Reds controlled the game from the start and took a deserved lead after 12 minutes through club captain Jordan Henderson. They controlled the game and extended their lead through Mohamed Salah, who scored a minute after coming on in the second half.
Both sides are unlikely to put too much emphasis on the game result so far as the pre-season tour is expected to boost fitness ahead of next season. However, Palace are hopeful they can find a way to limit the wild Reds in the league after being beaten so comfortably.
Liverpool now meet clubs from the Red Bull franchise from Leipzig and Salzburg on July 21 and 27 before the Community Shield.
