Updates on Liverpool’s injuries and return dates for Diogo Jota, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Alisson Becker


Injury New updates some lovely surprises.

Alisson Becker, Diogo Jota, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Stefan Bajčetić have all returned to training with Liverpool.


Liverpool’s pursuit of success under Jurgen Klopp’s leadership at Anfield is poised to receive a significant boost with the imminent return of key players.


The Reds, currently trailing Arsenal at the summit of the Premier League on goal difference following a 2-2 draw against Manchester United, have been plagued by injuries to several first-team regulars throughout the campaign. Klopp has faced one of the most challenging injury spells during his tenure at Anfield.


Presently, Liverpool is missing Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, Stefan Bajcetic, Joel Matip, and Ben Doak. However, there have been instances this season where key players like Mohamed Salah, Dominik Szoboszlai, Andy Robertson, and Ibrahima Konate have also been unavailable.

  • Diogo Jota

Liverpool’s Diogo Jota has been absent from the squad since sustaining an injury during the match against Brentford on February 17.


The Portugal international has been out of action for almost two months, but there is good news as he is set to rejoin parts of team training this week. Jurgen Klopp mentioned that Jota, along with Trent Alexander-Arnold, will be training together and hopefully will be back in team training next week.


Jota’s expected return date is set for the match against Atalanta on April 18th.


  • Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold has been absent from Liverpool’s matches for almost two months due to a recurring knee injury that he sustained against Burnley on February 10.


Similar to Jota, Alexander-Arnold is scheduled to resume training with certain parts of the team this week and may potentially make a comeback in the Europa League quarter-final against Atalanta in Italy next week.


Following last week’s victory over Sheffield United, Klopp mentioned that “Diogo and Trent are training together, which benefits both of them. It seems like they will hopefully join parts of the team training from next week onwards, and then we will assess the situation further.”


Expected return date: Atalanta (away), April 18


  • Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker has been out of action since February due to a hamstring injury he suffered just before Liverpool’s match against Brentford.


In a recent update, Klopp revealed that he anticipates the Brazilian goalkeeper to rejoin team training this week after undergoing individual rehabilitation with the club’s goalkeeper coaches.


“Ali is currently working with the GK coaches, and he is looking good as well,” stated Klopp. “I believe that in his mind, he is also aiming to participate in parts of the team training next week.”


Expected return date: Atalanta (away), April 18

  • Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara has had limited playing time for Liverpool this season due to an injury. He suffered a hamstring injury after playing for just five minutes against Arsenal on February 4. It is uncertain when Thiago will be able to join the team for matches again.


  • Stefan Bajcetic

Stefan Bajcetic is close to making a comeback to the Liverpool squad after a challenging season on the sidelines due to injury. He has only made two appearances for the Reds this season, with the last one being in September. Klopp confirmed that Bajcetic will start training with the first team next week.


“Stefan [Bajcetic] is now fully training with the U21s this week,” Klopp said. “That means we will include him in our training next week and then we will see. His return is another important development.”


Potential return date: Mid-April

  • Joel Matip

Joel Matip has been recovering from an ACL injury that he suffered in early December, which required surgery. Matip has been making progress in his recovery in recent weeks. Klopp provided an update where he mentioned that it is unlikely for the defender to play again this season.


“He [Matip] is running,” Klopp said on April 3. “Yes, he dislikes it, but since his injury, this is the best moment as it was very painful for him at the beginning. Now he is pain-free, but it will still take time. Unfortunately, the season is not long enough for him to make a return.”


Potential return date: Unknown

  • Ben Doak

Ben Doak is currently in the process of recuperating from a knee injury he suffered while playing for Liverpool’s Under-21s in December. Despite the passage of time, the 18-year-old has not yet resumed training, and there is no specific timeline for his return.


It remains uncertain whether Doak will have the opportunity to represent Liverpool again this season. As of now, the potential date for his comeback remains unknown.
