Liverpool hope to extend their winning streak to four games and their unbeaten streak to six as they welcome Fulham to Anfield, but Jurgen Klopp may have to do so with at least one of their forwards missing
“Diogo struggles,” the 55-year-old said ahead of the Fulham game, “in the West Ham game he got a knock in the back and a bruised rib, he couldn’t train before the game [with Tottenham] but could play without an injection or whatever.”
“But he got another knock right away when he came on [against Tottenham], and if you saw Diogo’s celebrations [after his goal], he sat down pretty slowly.”
After such a dramatic performance in the final minutes of our thriller against Tottenham, everyone will want to see our No.20 back on the field as soon as possible, but will also hope that his injury isn’t too serious.
As our manager also described his Portuguese forward as ‘exceptional’ (via liverpoolfc.com), he will understand the importance of his availability to the squad better than most.
With Bobby Firmino also likely to be a fitness issue, let’s hope that these offensive issues don’t last much longer – especially with the campaign’s end in sight.
