Jurgen Klopp has provided the latest injury updates on a number of his players ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Fulham on Saturday.

The Reds, who finished runners-up behind Manchester City in the league last season, will be looking to get the new season off to the best possible start at Craven Cottage.

Liverpool have many injury doubts going into the first weekend of the 2022/23 campaign, with key players missing in the Community Shield.

One of those missing was talismanic goalkeeper Alisson, who suffered an abdominal problem and not passed fit for the victory at the King Power Stadium.

Also absent from the meeting with City was centre-back Ibrahima Konate and winger Diogo Jota.

Konate was taken off during Liverpool’s final pre-season friendly of the summer against Strasbourg, while Jota has been suffering with a reoccurrence of a hamstring injury.

Klopp said Konate will be out for ‘a while’ but the Reds boss confirmed that Alisson is ready to start against Fulham. Meanwhile, Jota remains sidelined with no timeline set out for his return.

‘We have too many injuries, that’s true,’ Klopp told reporters on Friday. ‘But nothing has changed [in terms of new signings]. Unlucky situations. We started with Diogo [Jota] getting a re-injury.

‘Kostas [Tsimikas] unlucky in a training situation. He might be ready to train next week which is helpful. Ibou [Konate] in a challenge v Strasbourg, we have to see how long it will take but he’s out for a while. Ox [Chamberlain] of course.

‘We cannot solve the problems we have with a transfer. At the moment it makes no sense to us. But the transfer window is still open and we will see.

‘Alisson is fine. Curtis [Jones] we hope we caught it at the right moment. Sometimes with young players they have a stress reaction. We have to be careful.

‘Naby [Keita]’s ill, I think will be back today the first day. Yesterday some symptoms still, not covid, but not right.

‘Caoimhin [Kelleher] a few weeks away.’
