Injury epidemic at Liverpool FC: After Luis Diaz, Alexander-Arnold and Matip are also out!

Liverpool FC have to cope with setback after setback these days. Luis Diaz was not the only one to injure his knee in Sunday's 3-2 defeat by Arsenal. Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold also suffered an injury, as did centre-back Joel Matip. The defense duo is out for weeks.

Attacker Diaz will most likely not be available to the Reds until the World Cup break. The failures of the defense duo Alexander-Arnold and Matip are now increasing personnel concerns on the Mersey. Alexander-Arnold will miss Liverpool for around two weeks and Matip could be out for up to three weeks, reports The Athletic.

The injury epidemic at the Reds continues seamlessly. Most recently, midfield newcomer Arthur Melo was seriously injured. The Brazilian won't be able to intervene again until January or February 2023.

After all, ex-Leipziger Ibrahima Konaté returned to the pitch against Arsenal. The 23-year-old came on for the injured Matip in the second half and is expected to start against Rangers in the Champions League on Wednesday.

All-rounder Joe Gomez is expected to replace Alexander-Arnold on right-back. After the duel against Rangers, champions Manchester City await in the Premier League at the weekend.
