Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has given fresh injury news from his camp. He said Fabinho, Diogo Jota and James Milner would not be in the Merseyside derby as they are all sidelined with injuries.
Liverpool Set to Lose Three Key Players ahead of Merseyside derby
The English Premier League defending champions have lost three of their last English Premier League games because of injury. They suffered a back-to-back home defeat that has not happened for a very long time now.
Liverpool will be hosting Everton in the English Premier League Matchday 15. Liverpool returned to winning ways when they played RB Leipzig, and they did well to beat the Germans 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Jurgen Klopp said: “Fabinho was not in training. Fab gets closer, Milly gets closer, Diogo gets closer but not in time for the weekend.” Naby Keita, who last featured in their 7-0 win over Crystal Palace in December, could return for the Reds.
The head coach said the player trained yesterday with the team, so he is likely to play the derby. The three players (Fabinho, Diogo Jota and James Milner) will be out of the derby.
