Liverpool: Keifer MacDonald shares Curtis Jones injury blow

Liverpool: Keifer MacDonald shares Curtis Jones injury blow -Liverpool News

The Liverpool Echo journalist Keifer MacDonald has shared yet another injury blow for the Reds involving Curtis Jones.

The Lowdown: Injuries piling up

Injuries are really starting to pile up for the Anfield outfit, with Jordan Henderson now reportedly out for around three weeks with a hamstring problem.

That, on top of the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita also being ruled out, means that they have somewhat of a midfield injury crisis ahead of their trip to Napoli in the UEFA Champions League, even despite the return of Thiago.

The Latest: Jones injury

Taking to Twitter, Echo journalist MacDonald has now shared yet another injury blow for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as the German manager confirmed that Jones ‘felt’ a ‘stress reaction’ in a specific bone around his tibia ‘again’, which in turn forced him out of team training:

“Klopp on Curtis Jones: ‘Curtis had a stress reaction in a specific bone around the tibia. He was absolutely fine, but he felt it again. Not as bad as the first time but serious enough to miss team training.'”

Can you guess all ten Liverpool transfer fees? We doubt it! First up, a very popular Dutchman...

The Verdict: Big blow

Of course, now losing Jones as well is another big blow for the Kop faithful in terms of trying to field a fully firing midfield in Naples.

Should Liverpool start Jones?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It leaves them with just the returning Thiago, Fabinho, Harvey Elliott, James Milner and new signing Arthur to choose from, with the latter still needing to get up to speed and used to how the team plays having only just joined from Juventus on Transfer Deadline Day.

Nonetheless, they are really starting to look short in that area of the pitch now, despite Arthur’s signing, which may leave Klopp forced to play some players out of position until others start to recover from their respective injuries.
