Henderson, Konate, Jones: Full list of Liverpool’s injured eight and possible returns

Liverpool injury news ahead of their Premier League clash against Wolves.

Liverpool are licking their wounds after suffering a 4-1 Champions League loss to Napoli.

The Reds’ stuttering start to the 2022-23 season hit a new low point as they were well beaten at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t complained about the full-time whistle – and has now admitted Liverpool need to reinvent themselves.

The Reds are preparing to host Wolves at Anfield tomorrow, although the game is in doubt following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

If the match goes ahead, here’s a look at the latest injury situation.

The attacking midfielder suffered a knee injury in the Merseyside derby on Saturday.

Carvalho fell victim to a late challenge from Everton’s Amadou Onana and was taken off at half-time.

Klopp hoped the swelling around Carvalho’s knee wasn’t too serious.

But Carvalho did not fly to Naples.

“Fabio had a huge dead leg, which caused muscle problems, so it was bad luck,” Klopp said.

“He is now walking normally, but he had no chance to train until now.

“We now hope that every day will be better and that he will be ready for the weekend, but I am not 100% sure.

Curtis Jones

The midfielder has been feeling a recurrence of a shin injury which ruled him out earlier this season.

Jones’ only outing so far this season was a late substitute cameo in the Community Shield loss to Manchester City.

Klopp told reporters: “Curtis, when he was out before, had a stress reaction in a specific bone around his shin.

“Everything was fine, no more problems. Trained twice, felt it again.

“It’s not as bad as the first time, but it’s bad enough to not be involved in team training anymore, which isn’t very helpful.”

Ibrahima Konate

The defender has been unavailable since picking up a knee problem in Liverpool’s last friendly this summer against Strasbourg.

According to Klopp, Konaté should be back in form when it comes time for the international break later this month.

Klopp said: “During and around the international break he will be back in training.”

The Liverpool captain was sent off in the 2-1 win over Newcastle United last month with a hamstring injury.

Klopp has confirmed that Henderson will be on the treatment table until the end of the international break.

He said: “Jordan, the result of the scan, it will be after the international break, I think.”

Caoimhin Kelleher

The goalkeeper has been ruled out of action since the start of the pre-season.

He suffered a recurrence of a problem he contracted while on duty in the Republic of Ireland in August.

Kelleher has yet to return to the bench.

Klopp has confirmed that Kelleher is back in training.

Speaking previously, the Anfield chief said: “Caoimh, I only saw him walking outside for normal goalkeeper training.”

Calvin Ramsey

Aberdeen’s summer signing has been unavailable since joining Anfield.

Liverpool have discovered a problem with Ramsay’s back and have been cautious with him given he is still a teenager.

“Calvin is still out but getting closer and closer,” Klopp said last week.

“For him it was something with his back, something to do with age and growth and that sort of thing. He hasn’t trained properly with us, but he’s getting closer.

Naby Keita

The midfielder hasn’t made an exit for Liverpool this season.

He has a muscle injury he suffered in training, having previously had an illness.

Moreover, Keita hasn’t been listed in Liverpool’s Champions League squad.

Speaking last week, Klopp said: It’s a muscle injury, Ox is a muscle injury and they’ll be out for a while.”

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain broke down with a serious hamstring problem in Liverpool’s pre-season friendly against Crystal Palace in July.

Klopp has confirmed that the midfielder is not about to return to availability.

Before the derby he said: It’s a muscle injury, Ox is a muscle injury, and they’ll be out for a while.”
