Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk: Liverpool injury list and return date



Liverpool are hoping to build after three straight wins as they take on West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s students beat Ajax, Sheffield United and FC Midtjylland in consecutive matches, despite a number of injury issues.

The Red Devils currently do not have a few key players for the upcoming matches.

Here are the latest updates on Liverpool’s injury list.

Fabinho

Fabinho became the latest victim of Liverpool’s growing injury problem as he ran into a hamstring problem in the first half win against Midtjylland.

The sweeps have been going on since then and Liverpool appear to be without the midfielder, who performed well as an emergency center-back for the Reds, until after the international break.

Klopp has confirmed that Fabinho will be fine to return after the international break.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool won̵

7;t have Virgil van Dijk for most of the season, at least after he suffered a serious ACL injury against Everton.

The Red Devils’ inspirational center-back was caught before a horror challenge from Jordan Pickford and underwent successful surgery in London this week.

Liverpool are reluctant to give a time frame but the Reds defender may not play this season.

Thiago Alcantara

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara was also injured in the derby after finding himself after a rough foul from Richarlison, sending the Everton forward sent off.

There were initial concerns that summer signing’s injury was severe, but the scan results gave the Reds positive news and the Spaniard was pictured training alone before the match with Midtjylland.

However, doubts remain as to whether he will be ready to play for West Ham, with Klopp admitting he is unsure if Thiago will play for The Hammers.

Naby Keita

Keita has been absent with an unspecified injury since the last international break.

Klopp insisted that, like Thiago, he would check the midfielder’s fitness ahead of the match against West Ham.

Joel Matip

Joel Matip played 90 minutes of the Merseyside derby, coming back from an injury against the Blues.

But the Cameroon defender was sidelined after having a problem at Goodison Park.

He missed three matches later and also looked to be sidelined against West Ham. Liverpool hope to have him healthy ahead of the international break with important away games against Atalanta and Man City.

The midfielder played only 165 minutes in the Premier League in the past 11 months after a series of consecutive injuries.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The 27-year-old was involved in a challenge during training in Austria when the incident occurred and Jurgen Klopp explained that it looked like an injury similar to that of a captain Jordan Henderson encountered at the end of the season before meeting Brighton.

He returned to Melwood to rehabilitate with the club’s medical staff. The midfielder has had the misfortune of his Liverpool career injuries and fans will be hoping the latest will not keep him out for longer.

Kostas Tsimikas

Rookie Kostas Tsimikas is expected to return to training recently following a thigh problem.

But it looks like the Greek international hasn’t returned yet and the Red Devils will hope he is ready before the international break.

The Greek left-back suffered a thigh injury from the start in his EFL Cup win over Lincoln.
