Liverpool injury update: Latest news on Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, and Ibrahima Konate’s return dates

Liverpool’s injury concerns continue to mount following their recent FA Cup defeat to Manchester United. Manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed worries over the fitness of Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo as the team enters the international break.

However, there was a glimmer of hope at Old Trafford as Ryan Gravenberch made a return from an ankle issue and was included on the bench.

Looking ahead, there is potential for more positive news before Liverpool’s match against Brighton on March 31. Ibrahima Konate, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Diogo Jota are all nearing their comebacks, which could provide a much-needed boost for the team.


Liverpool Injury Update:


Version 1:

Stay up to date with the latest Liverpool injury news and return dates. Here are the updates on the players:


Luis Diaz

Luis Diaz: After the defeat against United, Klopp revealed that Diaz suffered a groin problem during the FA Cup quarter-final. He will still join the Colombia squad for friendlies in London and Madrid, sparing him a long trip to South America. Potential return date: March 31, vs Brighton.


Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez: Nunez played the full 120 minutes in Manchester but suffered a hamstring injury. His national team will remain in Europe for friendlies, and fans are waiting for an update on his availability. Potential return date: March 31, vs Brighton.


Ibrahima Konate

Ibrahima Konate: Konate has been out due to an injury he picked up in the Europa League trip to Sparta Prague. He has missed Liverpool’s last three games.


Cody Gakpo

Cody Gakpo: Gakpo came on as a substitute at Old Trafford but picked up a twisted ankle. He has been named in the Netherlands squad for upcoming games. Potential return date: March 31, vs Brighton.


Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent Alexander-Arnold: Alexander-Arnold suffered a knee ligament injury in February and will be out for over two months. Klopp does not expect him to be fit for the immediate end of the break, but his return is eyed for the week after. Potential return date: April 7, vs Manchester United.


Diogo Jota

Jota’s injury scare in mid-February raised concerns about his availability, but Liverpool are optimistic about his return around the same time as Alexander-Arnold, possibly for the Sheffield United match before heading to Old Trafford.


Projected return date: April 7, against Manchester United


Curtis Jones

Jones suffered an ankle sprain during Liverpool’s match against Brentford, adding to the injury list for the team. However, Klopp expects him to be back after the international break.


Projected return date: March 31, against Brighton


Alisson Becker

Liverpool has not provided a specific timeline for Alisson’s recovery from a significant hamstring injury. Klopp remains hopeful that the Brazilian goalkeeper will feature again this season.


Projected return date: April/May 2024


Thiago Alcantara

Thiago’s return in the FA Cup win over Arsenal was short-lived, leading to another setback. Klopp mentioned uncertainties about his recovery timeline, indicating that his return this season is uncertain.


Projected return date: Unknown


Stefan Bajcetic

Stefan Bajcetic’s susceptibility to injuries has been addressed by Klopp recently. The 19-year-old is now in a much better condition to handle the physical demands of playing regularly. Klopp clarified that any discomfort Bajcetic feels is not an injury but rather the result of intense training. The team is cautious about rushing his return to ensure his body is fully prepared for the demands of professional football.


Estimated return date: April/May 2024


Joel Matip

Joel Matip is unlikely to make another appearance for Liverpool. The center-back suffered a severe knee injury in December, and his contract will expire in the summer.


Ben Doak

Ben Doak, the teenage winger, had a promising start to the season, featuring in several Liverpool cup squads. Unfortunately, his campaign is expected to end prematurely due to a knee injury.


Estimated return date: Summer 2024.
