Why Curtis Jones and Joe Gómez were absent in Liverpool's clash with Atlético de Madrid

Liverpool faces Atlético

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool welcomes Atletico Madrid to Anfield with the assurance of knowing that a victory would allow them to overcome a seemingly difficult group and yet at the top of that group.

The Merseyside team has already overtaken Simeone and co. once, after a controversial 90 minutes in which the VAR denied the Spanish team a penalty for a foul apparently similar to the one that awarded Liverpool a penalty. While the spirits threatened to overflow, the Reds held firm to escape the Metropolitan Wanda with the three points.

And despite the injuries of James Milner and Naby Keita, Klopp appointed a very strong-looking team to face the exhausted Spanish champions, who are missing five first-team players and were forced to name quarry options on the bench. alternates.

Why Joe Gomez and Curtis Jones are absent from the team

While Klopp did name a strong side, there were two big omissions in the form of English couple Joe Gomez and Curtis Jones. Both were involved against Brighton and Hove Albion over the weekend, Curtis Jones started the game and Gomez was an unused substitute in the 2-2 draw with Graham Potter’s team.

However, tonight James Carroll, Liverpool’s editorial content director, has provided explanations for their absences, and it is injuries that rule out the pair.

Jones suffers an eye injury, while Gomez has been sidelined with a calf injury, meaning Ibrahima Konate is the first choice should Klopp need a defensive replacement.

Fortunately for the Reds, it shouldn’t affect their performance.
