Some Liverpool supporters have been left fuming that Curtis Jones is out of the Premier League clash with Watford after worsening an existing injury on international duty.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed an impressive start to the season for the Reds, helping fill the void left by Gini Wijnaldum.
Jones scored in the 3-3 draw away to Brentford last month and has also registered three assists, including two in the Champions League victory over Porto.
With Fabinho, Thiago and Harvey Elliott all unavailable for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Watford, yet another injury blow in midfield could be catastrophic.
Unfortunately, that is the case, with Jurgen Klopp confirming in his Friday press conference [via Paul Joyce on Twitter] that Jones returned from England Under-21 duty with a groin issue and is also out.
Liverpool fans furious at Jones news
Needless to say, the news has been met with huge negativity by these Liverpool fans on Twitter.
“They knew he had a knock and still played him“
“End my suffering“
“This is an absolute disgrace. It was clear before the Andorra game he had an injury and they didn’t even do a scan and just played him? Gross negligence from an organisation full of absolute idiots. That’s all it’s ever been.“
“So the midfield tomorrow is likely going be Hendo, Milner and Keita? We are in trouble tomorrow“
“When will it end?”
In other news, some Liverpool fans have erupted at some ‘massive news’. Read more here.
