Injury updates and return dates for Liverpool players Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Curtis Jones, and Alisson Becker…



Liverpool injury updates have revealed the latest on Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, Darwin Nunez, Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Dominik Szoboszlai following the Reds’ recent victory against Brentford.


New injury updates have surfaced regarding several Liverpool players after their triumph against Brentford. Following their 4-1 victory over the Bees in the Premier League, the Reds have unfortunately added more names to their injury list. Despite this setback, Liverpool managed to maintain their position at the top of the league standings, holding a two-point lead over Arsenal, who secured a win against Burnley.


Darwin Nunez, Alexis Mac Allister, Mohamed Salah, and Cody Gakpo found the back of the net for Jurgen Klopp’s squad. Nevertheless, the match resulted in more players being added to the injury list.


Alisson Becker, Dominik Szoboszlai, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Thiago Alcantara were all sidelined prior to the game at the Gtech Community Stadium. Now, there are fresh concerns surrounding Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, and Darwin Nunez ahead of the upcoming match against Luton Town on Wednesday night and the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea next weekend.


Diogo Jota

Diogo Jota sustained a potential knee injury during the first half of the match against Brentford. The Portugal international had to be carried off on a stretcher and was substituted by Salah.


After the game, Klopp mentioned that he was unsure about the extent of the injury and Jota is set to undergo further evaluation in the upcoming days. The Liverpool manager expressed concerns about the seriousness of the injury.


“Diogo’s condition seems to be the most concerning,” Klopp stated on February 17. “I haven’t reviewed the footage yet, but reports suggest it didn’t look good. We will have to wait and see.”


Anticipated return date: Unknown


Curtis Jones

Curtis Jones sustained an injury in the first half against Brentford and was replaced by Ryan Gravenberch.


Jurgen Klopp mentioned on February 17 that Curtis got a knock on the lower part of his shin, above the ankle. Klopp added that they will assess the extent of the injury as Curtis was unable to continue playing, indicating it must be significant.


Klopp also noted that Curtis is currently using crutches, which is a standard procedure for such injuries. Klopp mentioned he has not had a chance to speak with Curtis due to his busy schedule.


Expected return date: Unknown.


Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez, who scored Liverpool’s first goal against Brentford, was replaced by Cody Gakpo at half-time due to a minor issue, as stated by Klopp on February 17.


Klopp emphasized the importance of prioritizing player safety and immediately making the substitution.


Although the decision was not ideal, bringing on Cody proved to be a successful move. Unfortunately, the team cannot alter this aspect of the game anymore.


The expected date of Nunez’s return remains unknown.


Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker was absent from Liverpool’s victory against Brentford due to a hamstring injury. This marks the second consecutive match that the goalkeeper has missed, as he was also sidelined during last week’s win over Burnley because of an illness.


Jurgen Klopp stated on February 17, “Ali was ill last week and injured this week. No other reasons behind starting Caoimhin Kelleher. If Alisson had been healthy, he would have played.”


Klopp praised Kelleher’s outstanding performance, giving it an A+ rating. The expected return date for Alisson is currently unknown.



Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold was absent from Liverpool’s victory against Brentford due to a knee injury.


He experienced knee discomfort during the previous week’s match against Burnley and was replaced at half-time.


As a result, the vice-captain of the Reds will be sidelined for a period of time and will not be available for the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea next Sunday.


He is expected to return in early March.


Dominik Szoboszlai

Dominik Szoboszlai, the Hungarian international, has been absent from Liverpool’s previous three Premier League games due to a hamstring injury. The initial occurrence of this injury took place on New Year’s Day during the match against Newcastle.


Although Szoboszlai made a comeback on January 31 against Chelsea, he has subsequently been unable to participate in matches against Arsenal, Burnley, and Brentford due to his injury. As a result, his availability for the upcoming Carabao Cup final against Chelsea next Sunday remains uncertain.


Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara sustained a hamstring injury while making a brief appearance against Arsenal on February 4th. Prior to his substitute appearance at the Emirates Stadium, the midfielder had been absent from the Reds’ lineup for a period of nine months.


At present, Liverpool has not provided a specific timeline for Thiago’s return. However, Klopp has expressed optimism about the midfielder’s comeback to the matchday squad before the conclusion of the season.
