Liverpool came out of the Sunderland game, their second in three days, with some new injuries, and will thus be missing some key players against Plymouth in the FA Cup third round tie this weekend. Let’s run thorough the list, and assess the situation.
James Milner suffered a calf injury and left at halftime against Sunderland and will be rested over the weekend.
Also being forced off early was Daniel Sturridge, who limped off after a challenge midway through the second half. He has not returned to training. And yes, “Sturridge” and “injured” are two words that quite often go together.
Jordan Henderson suffered an ankle problem against Manchester City that kept him out of the Sunderland game. The injury isn’t deemed to be serious, but he will miss Sunday.
Philippe Coutinho and Joel Matip are improving from their injuries and both are in training, but neither will be available for Plymouth.
Joe Gomez is set to be available for selection for the first time in 16 months after suffering a knee injury. Enjoy the match Reds, and we’ll have our LFC starting XI prediction, which takes into account all these absences, provide for you shortly.Powered by Sidelines Follow paulmbanks
