Liverpool could be missing out on another midfielder for next week’s next trip to Napoli after Jurgen Klopp confirmed Fabio Carvalho suffered a ‘massive dead leg’ in the Reds’ goalless draw at Goodison Park.

The German’s update was shared by Echo reporter Keifer MacDonald on Twitter after the Merseysiders won their third draw of the campaign against a brave Everton side.

It’s a worrying trend to join an ever-growing injury list that seemed to be draining after news broke of Curtis Jones’ return to the matchday squad in the 2-1 win over Newcastle United with the international break still on. a bit far.

The addition of Arthur Melo – on loan from Juventus on deadline day – will soften the blow somewhat, although it is another key in preparation pending the possible returns of Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson Education.

With just nine points from 16 available, Klopp’s men are nowhere near title-winning form – nor do they look like the side that would have come close to a historic four-time victory in 2021/22.

It remains early enough in the current season for fans to hope for a solution from the former Borussia Dortmund manager, of course, pending the return of key men to the pitch.

Jurgen Klopp has provided a detailed injury update, with Thiago expected to return to Liverpool training next week but Naby Keita ‘still out for a while’.

Liverpool’s start to the Premier League campaign has been hampered by a long injury list, with a suspension for Darwin Nunez also limiting their attacking options.

Jordan Henderson was the latest to have a problem after limping off with a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s win over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Klopp says the club have yet to discover the extent of the injury but the Reds will be without their captain for Saturday’s Merseyside derby.

However, there has been some positive news on the progress of Diogo Jota and Thiago, who are expected to return to action sooner rather than later.

Back from suspension, Klopp has Nunez available to play against Everton on Saturday and has now revealed that Jota could also feature as he has been ruled out since a hamstring injury recurred last season. “Diogo will probably be [in the squad against Everton],” Klopp revealed.

“He trained with the team for the first time yesterday [Thursday]. He will train today and we have to decide whether it makes sense to tip him already or not.

“When we do that, it’s the first time we have five attackers, it feels like Christmas! We’re going to make changes, we’ll see.”

The Reds boss then revealed that Thiago, who was out against Fulham since sustaining a hamstring injury last month, is expected to return to training early next week. “Thiago is the closest of all,” he continued.

“I think he can be in team training early next week.”

Less positive news has come about Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are expected to be sidelined “for a while” due to muscle injuries.

“It’s a muscle injury, yes,” Klopp told Keita.

“The ox is a muscle injury and they will be out for a while.”

Elsewhere, new signing Calvin Ramsay is nearing a comeback that has yet to appear since his summer arrival from Aberdeen, with Klopp explaining that the youngster is struggling with a back problem.

“Calvin Ramsay is still out, but he’s getting really close. “For him, it was something in his back, something with his age, his growth and things like that. He hasn’t trained well with us yet, but he’s getting closer. ”

The last player Klopp had an update on was Ibrahima Konate, with the Frenchman sidelined due to injury in the Reds’ last preseason game against Strasbourg.

“Ibou is not too far. He will return to training during and around the international match [late September], “said Klopp.

Mixed news, then, but the Liverpool side certainly looks better than last month ahead of a hectic schedule for the international hiatus.
