Injury Update: Darwin Nunez arrives Liverpool training without protective boot despite injury scare, while two key players are absent from the training session prior to the Arsenal match.



Despite concerns over his foot injury, Darwin Nunez arrived at the AXA Training Centre for Liverpool’s training session without wearing a protective boot.


This raises doubts about his availability for their upcoming match against Arsenal on Sunday. However, Nunez appeared to be in high spirits, indicating that he may be optimistic about his recovery.


Jurgen Klopp has officially stated during his pre-match press conference that the Uruguayan player had encountered a foot injury during Liverpool’s impressive 4-1 victory over Chelsea.


As a result, his availability for the upcoming clash against Arsenal remains uncertain. Klopp confirmed that the 24-year-old left Anfield wearing a protective boot, expressing his concern about Nunez’s recovery in time to face the Gunners.


Regarding the incident, Klopp mentioned, “I am unsure if Darwin will be able to participate or not, as someone accidentally stepped on his foot after just 20 minutes into the game. It was quite painful for him after the match.”


Furthermore, Klopp revealed that Nunez only removed his boot after the game, as he was reluctant to witness the extent of the injury beforehand. The player had a sense that something was wrong.


Klopp held a press conference at 10am on Friday morning before the team’s training session. Later in the day, the Liverpool squad arrived at the AXA Training Centre, as captured in a photo.


In a video shared on the club’s social media channels around 2pm, Nunez appeared to be in high spirits. He was seen wearing training attire and walking without any indication of wearing a protective boot. He even greeted the LFC camera staff with a cheerful ‘good morning’.


It is yet to be determined if the striker participated in training alongside the rest of the squad on Friday. However, his presence at the training ground could be a positive sign as the team prepares for their upcoming match against Arsenal on Sunday.
