Nightmare continues as Arthur Melo, Luis Díaz and Trent Alexander-Arnold became the latest Liverpool players to be sidelined with injuries..



Losing three big players again after a big match! Liverpool confirmed on their official website on Sunday that Arthur Melo, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Luis Díaz were all injured before and after the Premier League clash against Arsenal on the same day.


Liverpool head coach Jürgen Klopp revealed that Arthur Melo accidentally strained a hamstring in the last training session before their Champions League group stage match against Rangers, and the team doctor will wait for further scans before judging how long the Brazil international will be out.


In addition, the situation of Luis Díaz and Alexander-Arnold, who were inadvertently injured in each half against Arsenal, were not very optimistic either. Klopp said that Luis Díaz accidentally injured his knee during the game. Although the player had wanted to continue the game with the injury, he made the decision to replace the Colombian international winger just in case.


As for Trent Alexander-Arnold, Klopp admitted that the wonderkid has not been injured in the seven years since his debut, but in this game, he accidentally sprained his ankle and screamed in pain, proving that his injury is expected to be very serious.


Klopp also added that, like Arthur, Luis Díaz and Alexander-Arnold will have to undergo scans to determine how serious the injury is.



Season finished?!


On the other hand, according to American media ESPN, Arthur's injury was actually a rupture of the quadriceps tendon in the thigh, and the media said multiple sources indicated that the midfielder, who was on loan from Juventus, would miss at least three months of action. If true, this would mean that Arthur faces a real possibility of missing the rest of the remaining 2022.



Three out and three return


In addition, Klopp also revealed that although Arthur, Alexander-Arnold and Luis Díaz will all miss a period of time due to serious injuries, but three players in the form of Curtis Jones, Calvin Ramsay and Andy Robertson are close to returning, this meant that the Reds still received some good news.


Klopp said that Ramsay has been able to return to some light training, and Jones has returned to the stage of physical training. It is expected that in a few weeks, the two will be able to officially return to full team training.


As for players whose injury situation is less uncertain are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keïta, who were seriously injured during the pre-season.


Liverpool will take on Rangers at Ibrox on Thursday, and it will be interesting to see how Klopp will deploy his troops to deal with the never-ending injury.
