This will come as a blow to Jurgen Klopp’s side, who face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, February 25.

The latest team to suffer a setback in the injury department is Manchester United, who will be without their in-form striker Rasmus Hojlund for at least three weeks.

The Dane is likely to miss the Manchester derby on March 3, as well as games against Everton and Fulham through a muscle injury, per Sky Sports.

And yet, despite the Red Devils’ having eight players out of action, it does not compare to Liverpool’s woes as Jurgen Klopp’s team is battling in all competitions without 10 key players.

Analysing title contenders' injuries

From an injury standpoint, Manchester City have a slight edge over their rivals since only two senior players are out with long-term injuries.

Josko Gvardiol has an ankle issue and is expected back in March 2024, while Jack Grealish is also expected to overcome his groin issue next month.

Arsenal, who are five points behind leaders Liverpool with a game in hand, have five notable injuries: Jurrien Timber (Knee), Takehiro Tomiyasu, Oleksandr Zinchenko (Calf), Thomas Partey (Thigh) and Gabriel Jesus (Knee).

Most of these players are expected back within the next few weeks.

Liverpool’s injury list is much longer, as the Reds will face Chelsea on Sunday without Joel Matip (Knee), Diogo Jota (Knee), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Knee), Allison (Thigh), Curtis Jones (Ankle), Darwin Nunez (Other), Mohamed Salah (Thigh), Dominik Szoboszlai (Thigh), Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic.

Liverpool’s quadruple bid

Sports Brief also analysed Liverpool’s quadruple bid and whether they are able to win it all in Jurgen Klopp’s final season in charge.
