Pep Lijnders claims 27-year-old Liverpool player will be back from injury soon

Liverpool will face Fulham tomorrow and ahead of the game as usual in the League Cup, Pep Lijnders has attended a pre-match conference.

The Liverpool assistant boss has provided some important updates ahead of the game against Fulham meanwhile the club’s official website has confirmed the Reds will be without Trent Alexander-Arnold for the considerable future.

However, there are positives news to gleam from Lijnders‘ press conference with a key returnee who could be back quicker than expected.

According to Lijnders, Kostas Tsimikas could be back quicker than expected. Meanwhile, the Liverpool boss also issued an update on the Reds’ other star players who are also out injured or ill at the moment.

“Virgil is back,” Lijnders said as per the club’s official YouTube channel. “He did some runs yesterday on the pitch, looked good again. So he will be back in the squad. He recovered well. So it really helped him not to travel to London.

“Dom is progressing well on the pitch. He’s running, so let’s see. Not available for tomorrow.And then we have Robbo. He’s almost at the three-month mark, so he will get checked by the surgeon.

“And if he does that scan and we see everything [so] that we can really progress him, he will go to Dubai for a week to do proper volume sessions, proper sessions, so that will be good for him. Then we see the three-month mark scan and then we can see how quick he can go into contact again.

Same for Kostas. Kostas is progressing really well, really quick. So hopefully both of them – Robbo and Kostas – will be back at the end of this month to train with the team.”

Having Kostas Tsimikas is going to be a huge boost for Liverpool. Especially with Alexander-Arnold now expected to be out – meaning Joe Gomez will be able to slot from left-back to right-back.

However, there were most negatives news to come as well. The Reds will have to wait longer for the return of Bajcetic and Thiago.

“They will not be ready for the end of this month. It will probably be going into the next month to train with us,” said Lijnders. “But both (with) no complications, progressing.”
