Liverpool training photos spark concern before Man City
The latest round of photos stemming from the training ground of Premier League giants Liverpool have sparked something of a concern across the club’s fanbase on Friday evening.
This comes owing to the surprise absence of a key member of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
The player to have missed out at Kirkby? Roberto Firmino.
As per a number of course to have been in attendance to watch the Reds’ stars being put through their paces this afternoon, Brazilian hitman Firmino was nowhere to be seen.
This comes just hours on from Jurgen Klopp assuring that his side were not dealing with any fresh fitness concerns during his latest press conference on Friday morning.

Should Firmino have picked up some form of injury concern over the course of the day, he could well be forced to sit out what many would no doubt argue marks Liverpool’s most important fixture of the campaign to date this coming weekend.
This comes with the Merseysiders, of course, set to make the trip to the Etihad, for a crunch top-of-the-table showdown with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
A scintillating recent spell of form has of course seen Klopp and co. position themselves firmly back in what once looked a one-horse title race, now sitting just a point adrift of the table-topping Sky Blues.
Should the Reds, in turn, emerge from Sunday’s ‘title-decider’ triumphant, then they will leapfrog Man City back to the Premier League’s summit, with just seven fixtures remaining in the campaign.
