Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said today that preparations for Sunday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League have been hampered by uncertainty over Covit-19 injuries to the opposing team.
Liverpool, who beat United in Newcastle on Thursday, will face Tottenham, who have not played for nearly two weeks, after matches against Brighton and Leicester City were postponed due to the discovery of Corona cases in the squad.
Globe told reporters: “I do not know the opponent’s position. United have heard that many players have been injured.
Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones missed out on a 3-1 win over Newcastle in the league on Thursday because they were suspected of having COVID-19.
But the trio are waiting to confirm their injury, Globe said.
He added, “The matter has not yet been confirmed. The trials are still ongoing. They are doing well and are far from these concerns. At present, there are no positive cases, but anything will be announced very soon.”
The German coach reiterated that he would reject the league suspension as Corona’s vulnerability increased.
Liverpool are second with 40 points from 17 games, 15 points ahead of seventh-placed Tottenham, who have played 14 games.
