In advance of Man United, Jurgen Klopp updates the Liverpool quartet’s injuries.

On Monday night, Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp gave an update on the condition of his team.

Naturally, Klopp recently led his team back into battle.

The Reds welcomed Crystal Palace to Merseyside knowing that they could ill-afford any additional lost points following their Premier League stalemate with Fulham on the opening day.

But once everything was said and done, Liverpool’s quest for its first victory of the season continued.

This happened after a fiercely contested 90 minutes that saw summer signing Darwin Nunez ejected for acting violently and a 1-1 final score.

A magnificent breakaway against the flow of play was completed by Palace’s star Wilfried Zaha to give the visitors the lead at Anfield.

Luis Diaz’s individual brilliance did bring Liverpool level shortly after the hour mark, but the 10-man Reds were left with only a share of the victory when the final whistle blew.

However, a second consecutive tie to start the season only scratches the surface of Liverpool’s current worries.

This coincides with the Merseysiders experiencing a minor personnel issue.

It came as little surprise when Jurgen Klopp was asked about injuries following the game because he was forced to start players like James Milner and Nat Phillips on Monday.

The German continued by giving updates on the condition of the remaining four members of his team.

One player, Joel Matip, is anticipated to sit out the upcoming week.

Meanwhile, recent injury difficulties also caused Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez to be out from his starting lineup against Palace:

The news on Roberto Firmino, though, was more positive, raising hopes that the Brazilian may be able to play at Old Trafford the following weekend.
