Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester City’s injury records ranked among all Premier League clubs

2 min read

Klopp’s side had almost fully recovered from their injury crisis, except for Joel Matip and Thiago, who are both ruled out for the remainder of the season, but now face a period without Bradley. The Merseysiders have missed key starters Alisson, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Alexis Mac Allister and Dominic Szoboszlai for extended periods this season – in addition to Matip and Bradley. Liverpool have also suffered 32 separate injuries resulting in a player missing one or more league games – only Manchester United, Newcastle (both 38), Brighton, Chelsea and Crystal Palace (each 34) have suffered more. The 25-year-old was a doubt for the crucial clash against Bayern Munich in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday after the Gunners managed a 2-2 draw at the Emirates last week, but the Norweigan trained with the team on Tuesday.

Midfielder Thomas Partey has also missed most of this season, while Fabio Vieira, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Jesus have been sidelined for notable periods. In contrast, table-topping City have been one of the least affected clubs – only West Ham (435), Wolves (523) and Fulham (636) have lost more days from injured players. Only John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne, Jeremy Doku and Erling Haaland have missed four or more consecutive league matches without making the bench due to injuries this term.
