LFC injury update: the latest on Alisson, Ox, Jota and more

Alisson Becker and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could return to the Liverpool team for Sunday’s meeting with Fulham, while Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas will be evaluated before the trip to Craven Cottage.

In his pre-match press conference, Jürgen Klopp also confirmed that the champions will be without Thiago Alcantara, James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri this weekend.

Alisson, who has missed the last three games for the Reds due to a hamstring problem, will resume full training on Friday.

“Ali will train today, that’s what I’ve heard. I walked in and came straight to the press [conference] so all the meetings are after that and yes, Ali will train and if he trains and everything is fine, then he can play, ”said the boss.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is already fully involved in team sessions and could therefore enter the fray for his first appearance in 2020-21 following the knee injury he sustained during the preseason.

However, Jota and Tsimikas must be controlled after taking hits against FC Midtjylland in the middle of the week, and Thiago, Milner and Shaqiri remain out.

“We had a game two days ago and after the game we obviously had some issues, I would say, but [they] may be more, we have to see. The diagnoses are not finally made, ”Klopp’s general fitness update began.

“We have to see Kostas, we have to see Diogo – he also took a hit. That’s it from the game, I think. Other than that, Oxlade is in normal training. He’s been doing parts of the training for a week or so, now he’s in full training and we’ll see.

“So the situation probably calls for getting him involved as soon as possible, but I don’t know if the weekend is already like this. I’m afraid no one else will come back. “
