“The Reds” Liverpool, the oldest football team in the Premier League football still are facing problems with serious injuries players. Recently, defender Joel Matip missed the training on Friday ahead of the Crystal Palace game on Monday night. He helped the Reds reached three cupin finals and were just one point behind last season's Premier League champion Manchester City. It was reported that he had a groin injury, which has been a chronic problem for a long time.
According to the Telegraph, Jürgen Klopp's men faced problems early in the season. Many of his key players have to be out for weeks if Matip misses to help the team for a while. He will also be on the injured list as well as Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota.
Moreover, Kostas Tsimikas, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and new full-back Calvin Ramsay who have just moved to Liverpool were injured as well as reserve goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher. However, Matip's injury could be good news for Joe Gomez, who is planning a return to the position for the big team and is ready to play in the Premier League football battles after going through two difficult years.
Returning to Liverpool's senior squad after a 468-day break on February, Gomez found that it was difficult as Klopp favored Konate or Matip as Virgil van Dijk’s partners. When both cannot play, that could be a chance for Gomez to return to the position of Van Dijk’s partner.
