Liverpool fans take note: Curtis Jones injury update provided ahead of Watford
An update on the fitness of sidelined Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones has been provided on Sunday evening.
Liverpool on song
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have of course enjoyed a fine opening to the 2021/22 campaign.
With seven fixtures played out in the Premier League, Liverpool sit in 2nd place, standing as the only club in the English top-flight to have remained unbeaten to this point in October.
On the continent, meanwhile, the Merseysiders have also impressed, racking up Champions League group stage wins over AC Milan (3-2) and, most recently, Porto (5-1).
One major concern amid an otherwise fine start to the season at Anfield, though, has been ongoings on the personnel front.
A host of Jurgen Klopp’s key performers have already been forced to contend with spells on the sidelines, including all of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Roberto Firmino, Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliott (expected to miss the remainder of the term).
In turn, it no doubt marked a hammer blow for all associated with the club when, this past week, a fresh pair of fitness concerns were revealed.
Both were picked up by stars currently on international duty, in the form of Portugal’s Diogo Jota, and England U21 talent Curtis Jones.
And, as outlined above, on Sunday, an update on the latter’s wellbeing has been provided.
Speaking to the media ahead of his side’s European qualifying showdown with Andorra, Young Lions boss Lee Carsley admitted that Jones, suffering with a knock, is currently undergoing treatment, before confirming that neither the midfielder will not be risked tomorrow night, if not deemed as fully fit:
‘We’re waiting to see how he reacts this morning, he’ll have some treatment again.’
‘After the game, we definitely won’t be taking any risks and putting the players at risk of potentially them missing their games for the weekend. So we’ll assess Curtis this morning and make that decision a bit later.’
