23 Liverpool players train before Bournemouth, Liverpool is getting ready to play Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday and had 23 players participate in their training session on Thursday. A number of the younger players were among those that participated.
After winning only two of their first three games, the Reds are in dire need of a victory to get their season off to a good start. They have only two points to show for their efforts thus far.
Their huge injury list has not been helpful, as a number of their veteran players are still on the sidelines at this point.
Many fans are pushing for changes to be made to the team that played against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday. Players like Fabinho and Fabio Carvalho might be in a position to start against the Cherries if these changes are made.
The most recent training session that Liverpool had at the AXA Training Centre provides us with a solid indication of which players will be involved, and Jurgen Klopp is scheduled to have his pre-match press conference on Friday.
Because none of the players who have been sidelined recently due to injury participated in Thursday’s session, it is reasonable to assume that the squad that will be available to play Bournemouth will be comparable to the one that competed against United on Monday.
This means that it is still highly doubtful that Caoimhin Kelleher, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsay, Thiago, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Kaide Gordon, or Diogo Jota will return this weekend.
Although there was speculation linking him with a move away from the club, Keita was a late withdrawal from the squad that traveled to Old Trafford on Monday. Klopp revealed that Keita’s absence was due to an injury he sustained the day before the match, despite the fact that Keita’s absence was due to an injury he sustained the day before match.
The Liverpool manager stated a week ago that Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota were “coming closer” to a return to the team. However, unless either of them is to train on Friday, it appears doubtful that either will be featured in the game against Bournemouth.
Isaac Mabaya, a member of the under-21 squad and a summer addition, was one of the younger players that trained with the first team on Thursday. Ramsay is still sidelined with an injury.
In the photo were also goalkeepers Harvey Davies and Fabian Mrozek, as well as Stefan Bajcetic and Bobby Clark, who both started games against Palace but came off the bench in the match against United.
While this is going on, Darwin Nunez is continuing to practice with the rest of the squad, despite the fact that he won’t be able to play against Bournemouth or the match against Newcastle on the following Wednesday due to his ban.
As a result of Liverpool’s defensive injury woes, particularly at center back, At this point, there is just one week left until the end of the transfer window, and Nat Phillips and Sepp van den Berg are both still a part of the team.
Thursday’s training session for the Liverpool squad was captured on camera.
