A number of Liverpool supporters are fuming that Curtis Jones may play for England’s under-21s tonight despite having a potential injury problem.
The Reds make the trip to Watford on Saturday lunchtime, but midfield options could be sparse for Jurgen Klopp at Vicarage Road.
Thiago remains a doubt while long-term injury victim Harvey Elliott is definitely out of the action, while Fabinho also looks set to be unavailable due to quarantining after international duty with Brazil.
It means that Jones is an even more important figure than usual, but the 20-year-old has been suffering with an injury issue of his own.
According to Sky Sports Premier League on Twitter, his groin will be assessed before England under-21s’ clash with Andorra on Monday night, suggesting that he could play a part in proceedings.
Liverpool fans unhappy at Jones latest
These Liverpool fans have reacted angrily to the news on Twitter, saying the midfielder simply shouldn’t be risked for tonight’s England under-21 clash.
“How about not risking a player with a tight groin? Would really appreciate midfielders not becoming the new defenders in terms of injuries for Liverpool this season“
“Why is he even being considered? He’s injured, the lad has played loads recently for Liverpool and needs some time off. England did this last year with Gomez and he was out for a year and Henderson out for 3 months, the medical department at England is one of the worst in sport“
“Just leave him alone to be ready for Liverpool please“
“Why is the England fitness staff the worst in the world? They always seem to play players that aren’t fully fit“
“Against Andorra of all teams as well, not exactly super important that he plays that game“
