A number of Liverpool fans have been bemoaning Nathaniel Phillips’ ongoing injury absence, with the centre-back missing training on Wednesday.
The Reds’ problems at centre-back have been scarcely believable this season, playing a huge part in an extremely frustrating campaign.
Jurgen Klopp has had to make do without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the majority of 2020/21, with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson forced to play in defence at times.
The relatively untested Phillips has also had to come into the back-line, and while he has performed admirably, he is unlikely to ever be a long-term regular at Anfield.
Phillips wasn’t seen in training on Wednesday, as per Anfield Watch, suggesting he will miss Sunday’s must-win Premier League clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Liverpool fans frustrated as Phillips misses training
These Liverpool supporters provided their thoughts on the situation on Twitter.
“This is one way to break my heart“
“Shame. That means Fab will revert back into the defence which means we’ll probably lose. Really wish the boss had given Davies a chance against Newcastle“
“Another match with Fabinho at CB. I hate this”
“That’s our chance of beating United gone then“
“Same old story“
