Premier League ‘Injury Table’ Shows Extent Of Fitness Crisis At Liverpool

Premier League ‘Injury Table’ Shows Extent Of Fitness Crisis At Liverpool

A table ranking the extent of each Premier League club's injury situation after the international break shows how badly Liverpool are suffering.

Jurgen Klopp's side sit outright 20th in an "injuries league table" put together by talkSPORT, with nine players missing with fitness issues - eight of whom are first-teamers who would regularly feature in starting XIs.

Joe Gomez has undergone knee surgery after picking up a serious tendon injury when training with England, while Mo Salah contracted coronavirus while away with Egypt.

Added to the long-term absence of Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool are missing the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson. So it isn't all in LFC fans' minds, they really are having it worse than the rest.

Leicester, Liverpool's opponents on Sunday are actually the next worst-off team. They sit 19th in the table with seven reported injuries; six to "big" players.

They join the Reds in having a defensive crisis, missing the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu and Wesley Fofana. So it could spell goals at Anfield (assuming any forwards are actually fit and available to score them).

Sheffield United, Newcastle and Southampton join Leicester and Liverpool as the five clubs with the worst injury issues. Then come Manchester United who boast an unlucky seven injuries - though only two to "big" players and the likes of Marcus Rashford could be fit for the weekend.

The table makes sweet reading for Everton fans, however.

Carlo Ancelotti's Toffees have dropped off the pace a bit after their flying start to the season but they're clearly physically indestructible (probably). Everton boast only three reported injuries, putting them in top spot.

Good news for Frank Lampard too as Chelsea are doing OK as well, with just three injuries - although they are to fairly key players, such as Christian Pulisic who's struggled to get fit this season.

Arsenal (eighth), Tottenham (ninth) and Manchester City (12th) all sit in mid-table. Check out the full table here - and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
