Klopp speaks about the title challenge and provides injury updates

Let’s see some of the news about the Liverpool football club.


Klopp rules Liverpool out of the title race

After their 3-2 loss at Arsenal on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp does not believe Liverpool will win the Premier League title this year.

Liverpool dropped to tenth place with only two victories from their first eight games. Klopp declared his team to be no longer championship contenders.

“We are not competing for the title. To imagine that we are almost there while sitting here is naïve,” the German manager added.

“We currently have issues. Although they are the team performing well and the table leader, today (we) had enormous problems.”

“I believe that there are actual challenges for us even in a truly horrible circumstance, with early modifications and things like this.”

The Reds appear to have switched back to a 4-4-2 this week against Rangers and at the Emirates after years of playing in a heavy metal 4-3-3 formation.

“In my opinion, the goals we gave up have nothing to do with the system,” Klopp stated.

“Do I have more serious worries? “We are going through a difficult time right now, and we want to get through this together. Yes, of course, I’m not happy. How can I (be)? That is what we are attempting.”


Luis Diaz was ruled out until December with a knee injury

The news that Luis Diaz would be sidelined with a knee injury until December has dealt Liverpool a new setback.

Following the Reds’ 3-2 loss to Arsenal last week, the Colombian exited the Emirates on crutches, and Jurgen Klopp instantly speculated that the injury might be serious.

Fortunately, it seems less severe than initially anticipated, and he won’t need surgery. However, his ability to play for Colombia is now much in doubt.

“We had to change before the break, Lucho.” After the loss at Arsenal, Klopp remarked, “It’s something with the knee, not good.”

“We will learn more after his scan,” he said. “I don’t know the extent, and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] has an ankle injury that is also problematic.”

“Not good. He twisted his ankle. Trent never missed a play in seven years when he had the option to continue. We will have to wait and see because he was uncomfortable, and it swelled quickly.”

FA probe Gabriel and Henderson incident following Arsenal-Liverpool clash

According to the Daily Mail, Gabriel Magalhaes has had conversations with the Football Association (FA) on an incident involving Jordan Henderson during the Sunday game between Arsenal and Liverpool.

The FA has investigated an on-field altercation between Liverpool captain Henderson and Arsenal’s Gabriel.

An FA representative said that we are aware of an incident during the game between Liverpool and Arsenal. We are communicating with the match officials and will discuss the incident’s specifics.

Gabriel thinks Henderson said something during Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Arsenal. He got into a furious altercation with the former Sunderland player on the field.

Michael Oliver, the referee, walked to the sidelines and discussed the matter with Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp. He did not, however, take any additional action in response to the predicament.

According to reports, Gabriel is relaxed after consulting with the organisation in charge of English football.

Henderson has also discussed the matter with the disciplinary chiefs and provided his version of events.

The FA announced Sunday night that they were investigating the event despite its secrecy. The incident occurred following Arsenal’s crucial penalty in their 3-2 victory.
