More angst for Klopp as Liverpool player Luis Diaz ruled out until after World Cup


Liverpool’s next 10 games before the World Cup break include games against Manchester City, Tottenham and Champions League clashes with Ajax and Napoli.

Diaz has so far been one of the few bright spots for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in what can be classed as a terrible season for Liverpool.

In eight Premier League appearances for 10th-placed Liverpool, the Colombian has scored three goals and provided two assists, as well as an additional goal and an assist in three Champions League games for the Reds this season.

The 25-year-old winger left the Emirates Stadium wearing a knee brace after limping off shortly before half-time following a clash with Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra confirmed the news after a preliminary examination on Monday, adding that the Liverpool player is facing around six weeks out.

What this means for Liverpool is that they would have to play their next 10 remaining games before the World Cup break without Diaz, including Manchester City and Tottenham and Champions League clashes against Rangers, Ajax and Napoli.

“Luis Diaz, he doesn’t look good,” the Liverpool manager said after the game on Sunday.

He is expected to hold his pregame press conference before Rangers on Tuesday night and will no doubt provide further updates.

A further examination is expected to take place on Tuesday when the full scope and more details are known.

Liverpool are also awaiting news on the extent of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s injury.
