The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling rather happy today. The Reds have enjoyed a very good few days, with a win against Huddersfield at the weekend being followed by an impressive display on Wednesday against Maribor. With back-to-back wins under their belt, it’s certainly looking up at Anfield. However, there is some bad news for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp has reportedly confirmed that Georginio Wijnaldum is set to miss Liverpool’s upcoming game with West Ham this weekend, leaving the fans in the pub feeling very disappointed. Wijnaldum has, of course, been a fairly regular member of the Liverpool first team this season, offering fantastic offensive flair alongside some solid defensive work.
His absence will certainly give Klopp a bit of a selection headache, and whilst he will have a few solutions to consider, it’s far from ideal. Their upcoming game won’t be easy, and so it’s frustrating for the Reds.
The Liverpool fans over on Reddit have been discussing the news, and it’s fair to say that most are disappointed, but they remain fairly optimistic. Indeed, they think it could be time for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to finally get his chance.
