Premier League

Two Key Liverpool Players That May Likely Miss Weekend Clash Against Arsenal Due to Injury

Arsenal FC defeated Watford FC on Saturday afternoon in a close encounter which saw Emile Smith Rowe grab a winner in the second half of the match. Liverpool FC on the other hand suffered their first defeat to an in-form West Ham United who defeated them by 3-2 last weekend in a thrilling encounter. The international break has not come at a good time for Liverpool because their key players like Mohammed Sallah and Sadio Mane will feature for their countries.

Sadio Mane featured for Senegal against Togo on Thursday in a world cup qualifying match, unfortunately for the Liverpool FC forward, he had to be substituted in the 28th minute of the first half after complaining of discomfort after an aerial challenge with an opposition player. It was a big blow for the national team and Liverpool FC because there are a lot of matches coming up at the club level during the December festive period. Liverpool FC have a crucial match against Arsenal FC after the international break, Arsenal FC are unbeaten in ten games in the premier league while Liverpool FC lost their last game against West Ham United.

Roberto Firmino suffered an injury which has kept him out of action recently, Sadio Mane has now added to the injury scare for Liverpool FC which will no doubt give Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp a lot of headache ahead of their premier league clash against an in-form Arsenal FC. The two players are key to Liverpool FC's success, and if both players eventually miss the game against Arsenal FC, which is now looking more likely, it will be a big boost for Arsenal FC as those two have inflicted damages on Arsenal FC in previous games.

The Liverpool FC manager will be scratching his head right now because he wouldn't want to lose three matches in a row, especially considering the fact that they are just two points ahead of Arsenal FC on the premier league table. Arsenal FC fans will be hoping that both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane will miss the game because both players are key to Liverpool FC's success against Arsenal FC.
