Lfc Rumour (Mark Baldwin)

Liverpool return to Premier League action for Sunday's clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium

  • Liverpool are expected to be without some injured players
  • The Reds are back on track to win after beating Rangers 2-0 in Champions League Group A on Tuesday
  • They are now aiming for a winning streak against Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday
  • Jurgen Klopp has welcomed a number of injured faces recently, including Ibrahima Konat, Calvin Ramsey and Coim Kelleher
Here's everything you need to know about the current state of Anfield and the expected return date for the injured.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not played a game this season after suffering another long-term injury in Singapore's 2-0 pre-season friendly against Crystal Palace on July 15.

The 28-year-old was sent off just before half-time with a hamstring problem and spent a long time in the treatment room. However, Klopp would like to see the Englishman return sometime this month, but an unspecified date makes it unclear when that might be.

Andy Robertson

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson can finally return to action this weekend after suffering a knee injury in the embers of Napoli's 4-1 humiliating defeat on September 7.

The defender missed Liverpool's last three games and was subsequently ruled out of Scotland's Nations League game last month, giving him extra time to recover during the recent international break, although he has been out since his return. Did not play for the Red Army. Hopefully, though, he'll be able to make a selection this weekend.

On September 30, Klopp said: "He's doing really well. He looks really good, so he hasn't been out for long; you've been away too long if you want, but it's an international break in this kind of game. The situation helps. He's already on the pitch, which is a good sign. I don't know if it's next week or a week after, I don't know."

Naby Keita

Naby Keita has yet to play once for Liverpool this season after suffering a long-term thigh injury after a five-minute cameo in the 3-1 Community Shield win over Manchester City on July 30, before falling ill to attack.

There was optimism about the midfielder's return when he was called up to the Guinea national team during the international break, despite his immediate withdrawal from the competition. Klopp has revealed that he expects Keita to return sometime this month, although it is unclear when that might be.

On September 12, Klopp said: "No, I don't expect him [Keita] to go on  international duty. The expected return date is somewhere in October, so we have to make a decision."

Curtis Jones

Jones found himself back in the treatment room after Liverpool played Newcastle on August 31, where he made the bench as an unused substitute. The England midfielder had made his comeback from an injury before the matchday.

Jones has missed Liverpool's last five games following a relapse from a previous injury that doesn't appear to be going away. The 21-year-old is currently working to get back to full fitness, although he may not be back in action anytime soon.

On September 6, Klopp said: "When he was out previously he had a stress reaction in a specific bone around the tibia. It was absolutely fine, no problem anymore; trained twice, felt it again. It was not as bad as the first time but bad enough for not being involved in team training again, which is not very helpful."
