Liverpool’s injury woes continue with Naby Keita limping off in win over Leicester

Liverpool’s injury woes take another turn for the worse with Naby Keita limping off in victory over Leicester due to apparent hamstring strain and joining EIGHT other first-team stars on the sideline

  • Naby Keita was forced off with a hamstring strain in Liverpool’s win on Sunday 
  • The 25-year-old midfielder picked up the apparent setback against Leicester 
  • Keita joined eight other Liverpool players currently unavailable for selection 

Liverpool were left bemoaning yet another addition to their injury pile-up after Naby Keita was forced off against Leicester on Sunday.

The 25-year-old was seen clutching his hamstring at Anfield and punched the turf in frustration after the realisation he would be unable to continue.

It remains unclear how severe the setback will be for the midfielder, but Jurgen Klopp will not take much solace with nine first-team players now restricted to watching on from the sidelines.

Naby Keita has added to Liverpool’s lengthy injury list after being forced off against Leicester

Keita was seen stretching his leg out on the turf after suffering apparent discomfort before attempting to run the strain off.

The Guinea international was soon replaced by Neco Williams, however, meaning the versatile James Milner was forced into yet another position.

Liverpool’s medical staff will now take a closer look at Keita’s injury and the player will likely also undergo scans in the very near future.

Klopp has unsurprisingly expressed annoyance with his lengthy injury list this season and will also now be without Keita for an indefinite period of time.

Jurgen Klopp is now unable to select nine first-team players for selection due to the pile-up

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, captain Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are just a handful of star names currently unavailable for selection. 

Fabinho was forced to play at centre back again against Leicester despite only recently returning from a hamstring which ruled him out for over three weeks.

Mohamed Salah tested positive for coronavirus while in international duty with Egypt, and Xherdan Shaqiri was also absent with an undisclosed injury problem.

It is unclear whether usual centre half partnership Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk will feature again this season after both suffered serious knee injuries.
