Liverpool could be without six players vs. Watford as report confirms fresh, massive triple blow for Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool could be without six key players against Watford as injury and fixture congestion forces Jurgen Klopp to plan without them.

The Reds are disappointed to have been held to a 2-2 draw by Manchester City as Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected effort earned them a point.

Mohamed Salah deserved to be the match-winner for his terrific goal but it wasn’t to be although he will be looking forward to facing Watford again.

Arguably the most incredible performance of his Liverpool career came against the Hornets in 2018 when he scored four and assisted one.

Jurgen Klopp will need the Egyptian to be at his sensational best as he will be forced to send his team out with a number of major absentees.

According to the Telegraph, Liverpool’s request to have their game against Watford pushed back was rejected and so Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino will be forced to miss the game as they return from international duty late.

The Reds will also be without Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold and while Thiago is in with a shout to return to face Watford, the game may come too soon for the Spaniard.

Thiago was a major miss on Sunday. Jordan Henderson struggled to influence the game and when Liverpool went 2-1 up, Thiago’s control and composure were needed to help them see the game out.

However, as they were unable to keep ahold of the ball, Man City found a way back to level-pegging as the ball dropped to Kevin De Bruyne on the edge of the box.

Alisson seemed as though he was going to deal with the shot but a massive Joel Matip deflection saw the ball wind up in the back of the net.

The game probably deserved to end in a draw given Liverpool’s poor showing in the first half but Salah’s outstanding assist and goal also deserved to be rewarded with a win.
