Liverpool are preparing to take on Wolves tonight.
The Reds have suffered with injury problems throughout the season so far. The champions have had to deal with a number of blows this season including significant absences for Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. Joel Matip then joined the duo on the sidelines.
Here are the most recent updates on the Liverpool injury list including full details on when they could be expected to return.
Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino missed the win over Leipzig with a knock and is a doubt for the clash with Wolves.
Jurgen Klopp admitted that the injury was not a serious one in his pre-match press conference, but Firmino wasn’t pictured in training with his team-mates on Sunday and therefore remains a doubt.
Reds captain Jordan Henderson has undergone successful surgery on the groin injury he suffered against Everton.
Liverpool are refusing to place a timescale over when he will be due to return but it is understood that Henderson will be able to play again before the end of the season.
It had been reported that Henderson was set to miss about three months of action but that speculation is wide of the mark.
It is more likely that Henderson will be sidelined for around half of that.
Matip was replaced by Nathaniel Phillips at half-time of the Reds’ game against Tottenham, leaving the 23-year-old to play alongside captain Jordan Henderson in the centre of defence.
Following the 3-1 win over Spurs, Jurgen Klopp confirmed Matip had suffered ankle ligament damage.
The Reds then confirmed on deadline day that Matip will miss the remainder of the season.
Klopp said: “We will wait for him. He has now the rest of this season, then the summer, then the pre-season to get ready again and he will be ready again.”

Gomez underwent a successful operation to repair tendon damage after suffering a significant injury during training with England back in November.
“[It is] a tough one but the surgery was successful, so he is now already recovering first from the surgery and then starting the rehabilitation,” Klopp said.
“He is with his family, so he is in the best possible place I would say. That’s it, pretty much. Rehab has started now.
“After surgery you count from that moment backwards and we help as much as we can, but for the first few days all of the boys after surgery probably feel pretty alone.
“But when you have your family around – and that’s the case for him – then it’s as good as possible, that’s it.”
No timescale has been set on Gomez’s recovery, with Liverpool boss Klopp admitting it was unlikely Gomez will play again this season.
