Liverpool injury news: Jurgen Klopp pencils in Mohamed Salah return

Liverpool suffered another injury blow in the EFL Cup final win against Chelsea, with Ryan Gravenberch stretchered off in the first half and Wataru Endo leaving Wembley on crutches.

We take a look at Liverpool’s injury list and potential dates of return.

Liverpool injury list

Mohamed Salah

Potential return date: 7th March (v Slavia Prague)

Mohamed Salah hasn't quite got back to full fitness since leaving for AFCON in January. The Egyptian returned home early owing to injury, but came off the bench against Brentford, only for a muscle injury to keep him out of the midweek clash with Luton and the EFL Cup final.

Salah's injury isn't thought to be too severe and while he is expected to miss the clash with Nottingham Forest, Jurgen Klopp expects his star man to be available for their Europa League clash with Slavia Prague.

Ryan Gravenberch (ankle)

Potential return date: March/April

After a heavy challenge from Moises Caicedo, Ryan Gravenberch was stretchered off with an ankle injury in the first half of the EFL Cup final. Jurgen Klopp confirmed there were no broken bones, but with ankle ligament damage, the Dutchman would likely be out for anywhere between four and 12 weeks.

Wataru Endo

Potential return date: 2nd March (v Nottingham Forest)

Wataru Endo played the full 120 minutes against Chelsea on Sunday and may not have featured against Southampton either way, but having left Wembley on crutches, the Japanese is a doubt for their weekend fixture.

Diogo Jota (knee)

Potential return date: April

Adding to Liverpool’s injury woes against Brentford, Diogo Jota went off with a knee injury. Having sustained a damaged medial ligament, the Portuguese is expected to be out until April.

Curtis Jones (shin)

Potential return date: 31st March (v Brighton)

Curtis Jones has been one of the stars of Liverpool’s midfield this season, making 17 appearances so far, but a shin injury sustained against Brentford will keep the 23-year-old out for another couple of weeks.

Darwin Nunez

Potential return date: 2nd March (v Nottingham Forest)

Although Darwin Nunez may not have featured in Jurgen Klopp’s plans to play against Liverpool, the Reds manager may have no choice but to field the Uruguayan if he’s fit.

Nunez missed the midweek clash with Luton after being subbed off at half time against Brentford and missed the EFL Cup final, but is expected to be in contention for their trip to the City Ground.

Alisson (hamstring)

Potential return date: 31st March (v Brighton)

Alisson has missed Liverpool’s last three games owing to a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out of another three Premier League games, with a return after the international break expected.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (knee)

Potential return date: 31st March (v Brighton)

Still to complete 90 minutes in 2024, Trent Alexander-Arnold was subbed off after 45 minutes of Liverpool’s clash with Burnley and missed the two subsequent Premier League games as well as the EFL Cup final. Like Alisson, Alexander-Arnold is expected to return after the international break.

Joel Matip (knee)

Potential return date: N/A

Having suffered an ACL injury in December, Joel Matip was ruled out for the season, and with his contract expiring in the summer, it’s likely the defender has played his last game for the club.

Dominik Szoboszlai (hamstring)

Potential return date: 2nd March (v Nottingham Forest)

Dominik Szoboszlai hasn’t played since Liverpool’s league game with Chelsea and missed the EFL Cup final, though is in line for a recall. The Hungarian has returned to full training this week, though Klopp may be cautious with his usage in the clash against Nottingham Forest.

Thiago (muscle)

Potential return date: unknown

After making his first appearance of the season against Arsenal in January, Thiago is back on the treatment table for an unspecified period of time.

Stefan Bajcetic (calf)

Potential return date: April

Stefan Bajcetic made a couple of appearances in September but has been out with a calf injury since, and while Klopp said in January that he hoped the teenager would be training by February, he’s likely still a few weeks away from a return.
