Liverpool must do without Alexander-Arnold and Matip

Liverpool FC are struggling with injuries ahead of their prestigious clash with Manchester City: in addition to Luis Diaz, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip are now also out of action.

The 2:3 defeat against Arsenal FC was not only bitter for Liverpool FC from a sporting point of view: With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip, two more players got injured in the Premier League match. They are the next personnel worries for Jürgen Klopp alongside Luis Diaz, who injured his knee against the Gunners and is likely to be out until the winter break.

Injury woes at inopportune time: coming up for City this weekend

According to media reports, Alexander-Arnold injured his ankle against Arsenal and centre-back Matip injured his calf. Both are expected to be out for around two weeks. As a result, they will not only miss the Champions League clash with Glasgow Rangers on Wednesday, but also the Premier League clash against Manchester City next Sunday.

The injury crisis has come at an inopportune time for Klopp and his Reds: So far, LFC, currently in tenth place in the table, have won only two of their eight league games. In the Champions League, Liverpool are currently second in their group with six points behind SSC Napoli (nine points).
