Klopp Confirms Liverpool Injury Woes Ahead of Arsenal Clash

Current Premier League leaders boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed James Milner and Joe Gomez have been ruled out of Liverpool’s clash against Arsenal on Saturday.

Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield as they aim to record a ninth straight win and further dent Unai Emery’s side hopes of a top-four finish this season.

Klopp will have to make do without two players who started the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium back in November.

Gomez – who has impressed alongside Virgil van Dijk at centre-half this season – also isn’t fit to make his return and he too will sit out the game with Arsenal as Dejan Lovren continues to deputise.

Klopp confirmed the team news during his pre-match press conference at Melwood on Friday afternoon.

The Liverpool Echo have reported that ex-Chelsea forward Dominic Solanke has also been ruled out, but Alberto Moreno is available again although is not likely to dislodge Andrew Robertson at left-back.
