The 9 Liverpool Players Currently Out

Jurgen Klopp spoke openly about his frustration regarding his players' heavy schedule before the international break, and might be even more furious when club football resumes – here are the nine Liverpool stars currently unavailable due to injuries and other issues!

Click through the gallery above to see the nine Liverpool players who have suffered with health and fitness issues in recent times, and when they are expected to return to action, according to Transfermarkt.

The Reds' availability issues began with Virgil van Dijk's knee injury, which he picked up following a nasty challenge from Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside derby in October.

The injury the Dutch centre-back sustained against Everton has ruled him out until April 2021 at the earliest, but that, unfortunately for Klopp and his coaching staff, was not the last of his team's struggles.

In that same game last month, former Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara also picked up a knock after a rash challenge from Richarlison, and the Spaniard is only now said to be getting back to full fitness.

Brazil star Fabinho has also been sidelined in recent weeks, and the current international break has seen more Liverpool first-team players fall victim to injury. Mohamed Salah, however, has contracted COVID-19 and will now be unavailable until just before the end of this month.

To make matters even worse for Klopp, both Trent Alexander-Arnold (22 years old) and Joe Gomez (23) picked up injuries in the past week and a half.

The right-back had to be substituted in his team's 1-1 draw with Manchester City before the international break, while Gomez has been ruled out until June 2021 after injuring himself while training with his England colleagues.
