We might already have one or two.


But we need ones who are fit.

It's a blow, but in the next 18 days we have just Fulham and Palace. There won't be a stretch of the season with so few games, so I expect Ibou to be back for the United game on the Monday.

Rumours (yes i know) say 4-6 weeks for Konate.

All the injury prevention work not really paying off so far. A more condensed pre-season won't have helped.

Need to get a grip on it by September when the games come thick and fast.

Because we have two injuries since the end of last season ? Jota got injured at the end of the last one and Ramsey had an issue picked up in the medical.  It's only Jones and Konate that have picked up injuries since last season ended isn't it ?

Ox is out long term, Tsimikas and Ramsey have missed much of pre-season with injuries, Konate, Jones and Jota out for a bit, Kelleher and Alisson haven't played a minute of pre season. A mix in terms of when and where they got injured.

We should hopefully have our strongest side out on Saturday, more or less, so it's not a big issue yet, but it's a lot of injuries picked up already.

It's basically why we had such a weak side out against Strasbourg because so many of the non-City XI were out injured.

Keita expected to train today according to James Pearce's twitter. Also saying Alisson should start tomorrow.

Shite that. Wonder if it means we'll hold off on any movement for Phillips/Van Den Berg just yet.

Don’t think we’re seeing Konate this side of the WC. Big chance for Gomez.

No definitive timeline on Konate has me a bit worried, but judging by Klopps' comments it's going to be longer than a few weeks, isn't it. As you say it'll be a good chance for Gomez to get minutes at centre half. You'd give anything for him to be able to stay fit and put a really good run together. As stated above I think it'll mean we'll hold off on moving Phillips or Sepp anywhere just now, there's still 4 weeks left in the window so we might want to see where we're at in a few weeks.

Konate's injury must be quite serious because Klopp has just said it will influence his decision on whether Philips leaves.

Hard to say really Klopp doesnt give much away and a while could be a 4-6 week injury.

Konate didnt seem to suggest it was a lomg term one I guess we'll know more soon as it stands we only know its a knee? Inury

Injuries already feel relentless and the season hasn't even started! Seemed to have a decent run second half of the season but back to normal now.

At his press conference to preview Saturday’s opening league match against Fulham, the manager was asked if Konate’s absence will affect any potential move away from the club for fellow centre-back Phillips.

“Yeah, probably,” replied Klopp. “It will influence the transfers – outgoing transfers – I would say.”

Yeah in the same interview he said we don’t buy players for four weeks, I suppose by the same reasoning he wouldn’t keep Nat here for only four weeks of Konate being injured.

Van den Berg hasn't gone out on loan yet either, so we could keep him around if another club does end up making us a decent offer for Nat Phillips.

Recap:

- Jota "a few more weeks"
- Tsimikas back on pitch, could train fully next week
- Konate "we have to see how long it will take, out for a while"
- Jones\Ox "out"
- Keita back today
- Kelleher " few weeks away"

With Klopp saying Nat will "probably" stay it leads me to think he could be back in a month.

I guess it gives us time to see how far he is away in a months time.

No chance we move both CBs on after what happened 2 years ago id guess we keep both till Jan unless a daft offer comes in for Nat.

Either way its not good news that he is out.

I think he meant more on what basis is it unlikely we see Ibou this side of the World Cup
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Don’t think we’d keep Nat Phillips for a 4 week injury (especially as 3 weeks of that would be transfer window). If it’s a couple of months then he’d take a while to get fit.

6 week injury is mid Sept so likely looking at late Sept

I'd say with the injury records of Matip (granted fine last season) and Gomez we will not take any risks.

Unless Nat pushes for a move I think we defo keep him until late in window at the least.

At least it didn’t take long for club’s obviously misguided plan of not buying a midfielder to backfire.

Who could have predicted that one of our brittle first-choice midfielders would pick up an injury?  Shocking development, came out of nowhere.

Thiago injured, but of course we didn't need to buy a midfielder. Why do we still have this attitude of making do with what we have, instead of just buying what we need? It was fine in 2016-18 when we were still on our way up, but now we can't afford to just wait around while the 'perfect' midfielder becomes available.

Does the club really believe that all of a sudden Ox, Keita and Thiago and going to mutate genetically and become physically capable of handling the punishment of regular games and training. Hendo and Milner aren't exactly robust either.
