With the premier league returning this weekend, after two rounds of international football, Liverpool will be hoping to have key men return after five pulled out of international action.
England duo Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez are both expected to return for their clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Liverpool skipper was ruled out of representing his country due to a viral infection.
England released a statement saying, “Henderson arrived in camp with a viral infection that has not fully cleared he has now returned to Liverpool.”
Meanwhile Gomez was ruled out with a knee injury he sustained in training after enduring a tough week after his altercation with Manchester City star Raheem Sterling and he was booed by small sections of the Wembley crowd in the 7-0 routing of Montenegro. England about his involvement in the scuffle, which saw Sterling, dropped for the game.
Netherlands captain Virgil Van Dijk, who helped ensure his nation qualify for their first tournament since the 2014 World Cup, has pulled out of Hollands game this week against Estonia for personal reasons and should be fine for the weekend.
One player who will be missing in action is Egyptian forward Mo Salah after aggravating an ankle injury, he sustained against Leicester in October, against Manchester City, which forced him to withdraw from representing Egypt over this break. He posted a video on Instagram on Friday giving his fans an update of his injury.
Another player who has been battling injury and seemed to put himself in more pain was Scottish left back Andy Robertson.
Who told the Sportsman, ““For the last two and a half weeks, I’ve not trained at all for Liverpool. My ankle was already injured when a tackle from Rodri on me late in the game against Manchester City on Sunday opened it up again. I was already a doubt for Scotland but unfortunately that made it even worse.”
