Henderson, Konate, Jones, Carvalho: full eight-man Liverpool injury list and possible return dates

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

Liverpool are left licking their wounds after suffering a sobering 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 had no complaints at the full-time whistle - and now has admitted Liverpool need to reinvent themselves.

The Reds have been preparing to welcome Wolves to Anfield tomorrow, although the game is in doubt following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

If the game does take place, here’s a look at the latest injury situation.

What happened

The attacking midfielder suffered a knee injury in Saturday's Merseyside derby.

Carvalho was on the receiving end of a late challenge from Everton's Amadou Onana and was withdrawn at half-time.

What's been said

Klopp was hopeful that the swelling around Carvalho's knee wasn't too serious.

But Carvalho did not board the plane to Napoli.

“Fabio got a massive dead leg, which caused the muscle some problems, so it was no chance,” Klopp said.

“He’s walking now normal, but there was no chance to train until now.

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

Potential return date

Wolves (H), Saturday 11 September or Ajax (H), Tuesday 14 September.

Curtis Jones

What happened

The midfielder felt a recurrence of a tibia injury that ruled him out earlier this season.

Jones’ only outing to far this term was a late substitute cameo in the Community Shield defeat of Manchester City.

What’s been said

Klopp told reporters: “Curtis, when he was out previously, had a stress reaction in a specific bone around the tibia.

“It was absolutely fine, no problem anymore. 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 again, which is not very helpful.”
