Liverpool FC team news vs. Bournemouth – Injuries and available squad

Liverpool take on Bournemouth in their second game of the Premier League season, and Jurgen Klopp has decisions to make. So, who is available for the Reds?

It has been an eventful week since Liverpool drew with Chelsea on Sunday.

Plenty has happened off the pitch and the Reds finally have that elusive holding midfielder in the squad, albeit not their first choice.

In playing terms, though, little has changed and Klopp is likely to pick the same starting XI that played at Stamford Bridge.

Here is who will and could miss out for Liverpool vs. Bournemouth:

There has only been one real new piece of injury news this week, as This Is Anfield reported Curtis Jones has a swollen ankle so is a doubt for the match vs. Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, fellow midfielders Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago have continued their recovery.

Klopp explained: “I’m told that Stefan Bajcetic is really close but not there yet, we really count on him. Thiago is in [training], but not there yet.

“So we need to give them time. We cannot rush that. It will look completely different after the international break but until then we have super important games.”

Wataru Endo has no fitness issues and trained on Friday afternoon, but may be ineligible to face Bournemouth due to his wait for a work permit.

Should permission arrive anytime before the squad is announced, he can play and will likely be on the bench.

Conor Bradley remains out injured. He hasn’t been involved since the start of pre-season.

Liverpool lineup vs. Bournemouth – unchanged or 2 changes?
