Liverpool’s injury problems have worsened ahead of the game against the Hammers this evening – either that or thoughts of how seriously manager Jurgen Klopp may be taking the game may have arisen!

Liverpool’s injuries worsen

Claret and Hugh revealed last night (Tues) that we could be without players who have apparently been complaining about fatigue but it seems that the Reds’ problems mean that seven had already bee been ruled and that Ryan Gravenberch will now be another absentee.

He has a muscle problem, itself caused by fatigue, according to Reds assistant boss Pep Lijnders and reported by the Liverpool Echo. That means the scousers will be without him, Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, Ben Doak and Alexis MacAllister for tonight’s game according to the Premier League’s official website.

The 21-year-old Gravenberch in the summer from Bayern Munich for around £34 million  and the Liverpool boss has been reported by the Daily Mail, per Hammers News as being ‘top-class’ and he has already made a really big impact at Anfield.

The Hammers, meanwhile will definitely be without Kurt Zouma and it could be that Angelo Ogbonna will perhaps come in for Edson Alvarez should he be unavailable. It remains to be seen whether David Moyes will give a rest to any or all of those claiming to be fatigued.
