Seven players might be out for Liverpool against Brentford.




Curtis Jones and Alexis Mac Allister will miss Liverpool’s Premier League match against Brentford, while Ryan Gravenberch is still doubtful.

After missing their Europa League loss, Liverpool will be hoping that Virgil van Dijk can bounce back from illness in time for their match against Brentford.

The Reds captain stayed on Merseyside for their trip to Toulouse on Thursday, even though they lost 3-2, shattering their perfect record in Europe.

Due to injuries, Curtis Jones is expected to return during the international break, but Ryan Gravenberch was also out from the fourth Europa League match.

With Thomas Frank’s team in town, concerns about their away performance—which has seen them lose four of their previous five games outside of L4—will be suspended.

After victories against West Ham at the end of September and subsequent victories over Everton and Nottingham Forest, they will be seeking to maintain their unbeaten start at Anfield this season.

Many players, including summer acquisition Alexis Mac Allister, will be absent for Sunday’s match against the Bees due to suspension, according to Jurgen Klopp.

A.V. Van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk, the captain of Liverpool, is expected to make a comeback to the team after sitting out their Thursday loss.

Due to an illness, the Dutchman was forced to stay in the North West while his Reds teammates traveled to the south of France. He will be reunited with his Holland teammates next week.

Speaking on Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp stated that he anticipates his captain being back in the starting lineup.

Although Virgil’s illness shouldn’t be too concerning, we did not want him to board the aircraft. It was evident; some people have it, and I do too, to some extent, which is why we left him at home. He should be OK for the weekend, without a doubt.”

Gravenberch Ryan

There are a few minor doubts regarding Ryan Gravenberch’s fitness as of deadline day signing. After a run of impressive displays, the former Ajax and Bayern Munich midfielder has begun to show signs of becoming a clever businessman.

Prior to the travel to France, he was not present at the open training session on Wednesday. Klopp acknowledged that he was sidelined for the match against the Purples due to a “small” knee injury.

But Klopp says there’s a chance he might play on Sunday (2pm kickoff) against the West London team. However, he ought to be fully fit for November’s Premier League football kickoff.

25 when Liverpool visits Manchester City, the reigning Premier League winners.

“Ryan got a little niggle in the knee, nothing major,” Klopp stated. “We hope Brentford has a chance and he will return after the international break, but it doesn’t assist for today. He was running today (Wednesday). This is the reason Toulouse isn’t present.

Jones, Curtis

Curtis Jones’ bad luck will not end there as he will not play on Sunday due to a hamstring issue.


The midfielder for Liverpool was substituted just beyond the hour mark in their November 1 Carabao Cup victory over AFC Bournemouth.

Even if it’s a “low, low-grade hamstring” injury, it will be sufficient to keep him off the field on Sunday.

“Curtis experienced a minor hamstring problem last week. He will return after the international break, but not before. It’s a very minor hamstring strain,” Klopp remarked.

Despite the red card and lack of rhythm, he was in fantastic shape and received the games before feeling a little off. When I took him off against Bournemouth, he was resting in the dressing room and felt something, but he didn’t feel anything there. We had a very low-grade scan, but it cleared him.

Robertson Andy

Andy Robertson, a full-back, is another missing. After sustaining a dislocated shoulder during the Tartan Army’s loss to Spain in October, the captain of Scotland has been sidelined.

Following surgery for the injury, Robertson is anticipated to make a comeback in the upcoming year.

Mac Allister Alexis

After receiving five yellow cards, Alexis Mac Allister will serve his one-match suspension against Brentford on Sunday.

After challenging Ryan Christie during his home debut match against AFC Bournemouth in August, Mac Allister received a straight red card; however, his ban was later lifted.


Since moving up north, the former Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder has been used in an unaccustomed position, raising concerns about his level of play.

Wataru Endo may start in the Premier League in his place, although Klopp has mentioned Trent Alexander-Arnold as a potential replacement going forward.

Antonio Alcantara

Due to a setback in his recuperation from pelvic surgery, Thiago Alcantara is still not able to perform.

The Spaniard’s 31-minute cameo against West Ham United in April was his last appearance for Liverpool. He is anticipated to return in the upcoming year.

Maxim Bajcetic

Stefan Bajcetic is also out due to a setback in his recuperation from an injury. His current issue is unrelated to the one that ended his historic campaign the previous year.
