Fabrizio Romano Drops Injury Update on Liverpool Star as Major Decision Made

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp faces the challenge of fielding a team depleted by injuries as they prepare to take on Luton Town in the Premier League.

Among the absentees is goalkeeper Alisson, with Klopp revealing in a pre-match press conference that the Brazilian, aged 31, is sidelined with a muscle injury.

Alisson’s absence was also felt in Liverpool’s recent 4-1 victory over Brentford, and his return to action is not imminent, with Brazil’s coach confirming on TNT Sport that he will miss upcoming international fixtures, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

The reliable journalist wrote on X: “It means Alisson will not return before the end of March.”

The absence of Alisson for an extended period poses a significant setback for the club, given his status as a world-class goalkeeper renowned for bolstering defensive stability.

Although Caoimhin Kelleher is a dependable option between the posts, Alisson’s presence instills a sense of confidence and composure in the team’s defensive line. Liverpool’s aspiration for his return before the clash with Manchester City on March 10 appears unlikely.

Adding to Liverpool’s woes, injuries sideline Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota for at least a month following their setbacks in the match against Brentford. Their absence is particularly unfortunate considering their recent standout performances.

On a more positive note, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai are nearing a return to full training, raising hopes for a swift comeback to the squad, possibly in time for the fixture against Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Joel Matip remains sidelined with a long-term injury sustained from an ACL tear. Concerns also loom over the availability of Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez for the upcoming match against Luton, although Klopp reassures supporters that their situations are being managed cautiously.
