Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah, Ibrahima Konate – Liverpool injury news and return dates



Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah, and Ibrahima Konate: Liverpool players’ injury updates and anticipated return datesLiverpool supporters will be anticipating a multitude of optimistic fitness updates regarding crucial players prior to Saturday’s match against Burnley.


Thiago Alcantara’s reception back into the Liverpool squad on Sunday was a pleasant development, and his first start since April was arguably the only positive aspect of the 3-1 loss at home to title rivals Arsenal.


A sending off for Ibrahima Konate and, more alarmingly, an injury to Dominik Szoboszlai that was revealed prior to the start of the match further exacerbated the defeat.


Wataru Endo’s tenure at the Asian Cup is over following Japan’s elimination by Iran in the quarterfinal stage. As a result, Jurgen Klopp is expected to have a greater availability of midfielders for Saturday’s visit of relegation-threatened Burnley to Anfield.Mohamed Salah appears to be recovering from the injury he sustained while playing for Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations in January.



However, as our round-up demonstrates, Klopp could still be without seven players for the match against the Clarets.


According to Dominik SzoboszlaiPrior to the top-of-the-table match against Arsenal, speculation circulated that the captain of Hungary had not accompanied the Liverpool squad to the capital. In addition, Klopp affirmed prior to kickoff that Szoboszlai’s injury, which he sustained in the rematch against Newcastle United on New Year’s Day, had flared up once more.

“Dom felt in the same area, or pretty much a similar area, to where he was injured before,” according to the Reds manager. “He was fine during the game (victory over Chelsea), but he felt it slightly afterward, so we examined it and determined that he had no chance of playing in this contest.”We cannot take any chances. We must await additional evaluation, but it is evident that he is unable to participate today. “That’s essentially it.”Recent reports from Hungary indicate that the midfielder may be sidelined for approximately one month. Ian Doyle of The ECHO shared the following on social media: “A little perplexed by the absence of Dominik Szoboszlai due to injury. A Hungarian news outlet that last night alluded at a possible one-month outage has since recanted and stated that the exact duration has not been determined. “Liverpool has not yet provided a time estimate.”


Later this week, Klopp will likely provide an updated status report on Szoboszlai’s fitness at this press conference.

Ibrahima Konate is an

Instead of an injury, it was a suspension. Due to his two yellow card rebuke against Arsenal, Konate will be sidelined for the match against Burnley.Regarding the decision, referee Anthony Taylor did not satisfy Klopp. He stated to Sky Sports, “Today, numerous circumstances worked against us.” This referee issued me a red card against Manchester City due to a grappling incident involving Mo Salah and Bernardo Silva. (Diogo) Jota encountered the same circumstance today, but he was spared a red card. The decision to place (Kai) Havertz on Konate for an initial yellow card is truly preposterous. Following Havertz’s fall, the referee issues a yellow card to Konate. Gabriel treats (Darwin) Nunez similarly, incurring no yellow card.


Brentford (A) is scheduled to return on February 17.

Since sustaining a hamstring injury in Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Ghana in their second match of the Africa Cup of Nations, Mohamed Salah has been sidelined. He recently returned to Merseyside to resume his rehabilitation.


Recent confirmation by the player’s counsel, Ramy Abbas Issa, that Salah’s injury was more severe than initially anticipated and that he would be sidelined for 21 to 28 days places his return in the Premier League later this month against Burnley or, more likely, Brentford.


Salah uploaded images of himself in the fitness center at Liverpool’s training facility on Tuesday.


Date of anticipated return: mid-FebruaryStomachus Tsimikas

Liverpool is nearing the return of Kostas Tsimikas from six weeks on the sidelines. Following a vicious collision with Bukayo Saka during December’s 1-1 draw at Anfield with Arsenal, the left-back was forced to undergo collarbone surgery.


Klopp recently provided an update on Kosti Tsimikas: “Kosti [Kostas Tsimikas] is approaching. Kosti is in fact in good health; he is merely awaiting the all-clear at this time, as bone recovery takes an extended period of time; however, the plate is currently performing its intended function.


The image of the Greece international in full training prior to Sunday’s match at the Emirates suggests he could very well be available to face Burnley this weekend.


Burnley’s (H) anticipated return date is February 10.

Stefan Bajcetic has experienced a challenging phase in his nascent tenure with the Reds due to a succession of injury issues. Last season, he had a promising debut campaign but was forced to retire early in March due to a stress reaction in his adjunct.

Justus Matip

Joel Matip is currently undergoing recovery from surgery for an anterior cruciate ligament tear. It is probable that the 32-year-old will miss the remainder of the season, as his contract with Liverpool enters its final months. An off-the-ball incident left the center-back injured on the Anfield turf in the 70th minute of the dramatic Premier League 4-3 victory over Fulham in December.


Date of anticipated return: UnknownBen Doak sustained a severe knee injury while competing for the under-21s and is out indefinitely. Pep Lijnders, assistant manager, recently commented on Doak’s condition: “That’s not a favorable one. The surgical repair of his torn lateral meniscus is required.


“That one requires an additional duration.” He is youthful, physically fit, and optimistic, so he will undoubtedly return stronger, and we need him to do so with the same fervor he once displayed toward the ball. “He will be awaited.”
