Sports Brief looks at the top 5 Premier League clubs with the most injured players per Planet Football.

PL clubs with most injuries

Liverpool - 9

The Reds came into the game against Brentford with seven players on the treatment table and have now added two. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, and Dominic Szoboszlai are among the key players injured. They face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final next Sunday.

Sheffield United - 9

Bottom-placed Sheffield United have nine players on their injury list, including Chris Basham, who suffered a nasty broken ankle in October. Chris Wilder returned after Paul Heckingbottom was sacked but has been unable to turn the club’s fortune around.

Chelsea - 8

The Blues have eight players currently out injured ahead of their trip to Manchester City later today, including long-term absentees Reece James and Wesley Fofana. Thiago Silva, Benoit Badiashile and Romeo Lavia are also out injured.

Newcastle United - 8

Eddie Howe's team has also struggled with injuries to key names this season, including goalkeeper Nick Pope, who has been unavailable for a long time. Alexander Isak, Calum Wilson, Joelinton and Joe Wilock are other notable absentees.

Arsenal, Crystal Palace - 7

The two London clubs have seven players out injured. The Gunners have struggled to keep Thomas Partey and Emile Smith Rowe fit, with new signing Jurrien Timber also out injured. Palace have Eberechi Eze, Michael Olise and Marc Guehi as the notable absentees. The Eagles have reportedly sacked Roy Hodgson and hired Oliver Glasner.

Salah marks AFCON return in style

Sports Brief reported on Mohamed Salah's first game for Liverpool after recovering from the hamstring injury he suffered at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Egyptian limped off in the first half of his nation’s 2-2 draw against Ghana. He missed the last group game against Cape Verde and round of 16 elimination to DR Congo.
