I was hoping they would be back for the utd game but going by the post on reddit (it does seem plausible) if it's 2 weeks, Alisson, Trent and Jones won't be back until the Palace game on 14th, potentially Atlanta 1st leg on the 11th. If it's 3 weeks then it'll be Fulham on the 21st or potentially the 2nd leg of the EL game on the 18th.

That Reddit link sounds like absolute horseshit by the way. As if Klopp would be giving out injury updates to some random fan.

"Got to watch training from the balcony of the media suite for about 25 minutes, during which Klopp came over and chatted from below. I asked him about Alisson, he said he was 2-3 weeks away. Said similar for Trent and Curtis. Robbo was inside having a scan. He joked about the packed April schedule."

He definitely said that Ali is 2 to 3wks away, saw it on a Courtney Neary youtube video, she won a competition.

There are videos of it. And he’s definitely talking to someone about those players. The one posted above has it.

Just noticed in one of his replies on reddit it states that he thinks he got the return dates wrong as his son told him that Klopp actually said Jones and Trent should be back in 1-2 weeks. It's Alisson that is expected to be back in 2-3 weeks.

Whether it's 1-2 week or 2-3 weeks, that's the timescale for returning to training. That's not the timescale for playing in matches, even from the bench.

The goalie may be a slightly different scenario, but generally outfield players who've been out for an extended time aren't going to step into the starting XI straight away. It'll be good to have options on the bench but realistically I think TAA, Jones, Jota are only going to be options to start games at mid to the back end of April.  I'd guess 2 weeks to get back to training then 2 week of training plus some managed game time off the bench before you'll see them start.

I think next 4-5 league games and EL quarter finals we'll be counting on the currently fit players (maybe plus or minus Robertson depending on extent of his injury). Fixture list is relatively kind with 3 home league games out of 4 so that's a positive.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.

Some really fucking outrageously stupid takes on Robbo here in the last 2 pages.

I would say Robbo has been very close to Salah/VVD levels of durability over the last 5 years. Literally the only games I can remember him missing is when a shithouse goalkeeper dislocated his shoulder, and now this bad tackle injuring his ankle. How is that Robbo's fault? And on the other hand, as someone rightly pointed out, he has been grinding up serious minutes over the last 5 years, almost certainly putting more miles in than Salah or VVD considering his role, and so having these unlucky impact injuries at least has some blessing in disguise. He must be third in minutes played under Klopp total I am guessing?

You can argue that he shouldn't have been playing for Scotland in a friendly but a) he is their captain and b) if anything it was a good thing to play because Robbo still looked rusty for us after his lengthy spell out so having a few more minutes on someone else's watch was actually useful.

That's turned into a long injury that, thought the international break would see him back training properly and ready to go straight away but you can never bank on that with us. The news is mostly good though, Robertson won't be out long and we have Gravenberch/Nunez available etc, hopefully Jota and Alisson can provide their services for the run in.

Konate seriously went and played friendlies for France after missing several games leading up to the international break? It's one thing we could actually learn from Arteta and Arsenal - getting players to duck out of pointless shite, especially if they're not 100%.

Still two more days to train for Konate though. The minutes for France shouldn't end up being the worst thing if he can make the weekend's game, better than throwing him in from the cold. I'd start Quansah against Sheffield United anyway so Konate doesn't have to play three in a week.

On Qunasah, I wonder if he was under any thoughts of looking to move on in the summer, on loan or otherwise? Probably not considering he went on the pre-season tour, but regardless, if he did, deciding to stick around will end up being the smartest decision of his career. Thought he'd end up maybe playing a few games in the League Cup but he's gonna have played 30 odd come the end of the season, maybe more.

For Konate that may be beneficial though, he needs game sharpness. Still, a full game is overkill...

What a weird comment.

So thinking it's a bit odd that he goes and plays meaningless international friendlies when he hadn't been available for us is "turning our fire on him"? I think that the club and France should've had the sense to just let him stay here and build his fitness back with us. Hardly criticising the player.
