Liverpool injury news: James Milner’s exit limps against Leicester, Divock Origi and injured Ben Davis before the match | football news
Liverpool received a fresh triple kick in their injury-hit season after James Milner, Divock Origi and Ben Davis all hit fitness concerns.
Milner began the Champions League game in Leicester on Saturday at lunchtime, but Thiago Alcantara replaced him in the first half after suffering an injury.
It was not clear what bothered the midfielder, who managed to leave the field without assistance.
While Milner was injured during the match at King Power Stadium, Origi and Davis’ problems were revealed before kick-off.
The Liverpool website stated that Origi’s absence from the team was due to a hamstring injury, while Juergen Klopp said that Ben Davis suffered a slight blow and was unable to play.
No timeline has been set on the returns of Origi or Davies, who has yet to make his debut with the club after arriving on the one-day deadline from Preston.
Injuries undermined Liverpool’s bid to retain the Premier League title this season, leaving them 10 points behind leaders Manchester City before weekend matches.
Virgil van Dijk has not played since suffering a serious knee injury against Everton in October, while Joe Gomez also suffered a knee injury just weeks later. It is unclear if any of the defenders will play again this season.
Fellow center-back Joel Matip is sure not to appear again in this campaign due to an ankle injury suffered last month. Diogo Jota and Naby Keita are also absent for a long time and did not play in 2021.
Bayern Munich manager Hasan Salih Hamidic has announced his readiness to sign RB Leipzig Dayot Upamecano defender.
Request from German publication picture If he could confirm that an agreement has been reached between the clubs, he said: “I can and we are very happy about that at Bayern Munich.”
The German champions seem to have defeated both Liverpool and Chelsea to Upamecano – one of the game’s most sought-after defenders.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said earlier Sky Germany That both clubs in the Premier League were trying to sign him.
“We had good, intense and professional discussions with Dayot and his agent, Volker Struth, over a period of several months. We knew that we had a very strong competition,” Salih Hamidic added on Friday.
