Liverpool fans have had a good few months, winning both the Champions League and the European Super Cup, but after narrowly missing out on last season’s Premier League title they’ll want to make amends this time around. That won’t be possible, though, if they continue to suffer injuries at the rate they are.
Naby Keita out of Southampton with hip muscle injury

They have already seen Alisson Becker suffer a calf injury that will see him miss out for ‘the next few weeks’, as per the Liverpool website, then Paul Joyce brought news of Adrian’s injury, and it seems that these things really do come in threes, as Naby Keita is also sidelined.
This is Keita’s second season in England, and he’s one that really failed to make his mark during his debut campaign. The midfielder was held back by injuries as he failed to gain any real momentum, scoring just three goals and one assist in his 33 games, Transfermarkt, and his current hip injury is not the way anyone wanted to see the midfielder start this campaign.

The Kopites are not at all pleased with Keita’s latest blow, as you can clearly see, and it looks like the midfielder still has a lot of proving to do to the fans.
