Liverpool have another injured player in their defensive line. The main character is Ibrahima Konate.

England’s ’90min’ said on the 31st (Korean time), “Liverpool’s center back Konate will be out for up to three weeks due to a hamstring injury. Liverpool will not have Virgil Van Dyke due to an injury, and Konate will be out from the beginning of the season until October due to knee problems. Missed the game. Joel Matip is also suffering from fitness problems.”

Liverpool lost 1-2 to Brighton in the 4th round (Round of 32) of the 2022-23 season English FA Cup held at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, England at 10:30 pm on the 29th.

Konate, who started this day, started the game by building a defensive line with Joe Gomez. However, Liverpool continued to struggle to break through Kaoru Mitoma and Soli March, who were located on the left and right flanks, and in the end, even after scoring the opening goal, they conceded two goals and fell on their 토토사이트 knees 1-2.

With defeat came bad news. Konate, who played full-time for 90 minutes that day, was forced to miss for a while due to a hamstring injury. Konate, who is expected to be absent for at least two weeks, is likely to be unable to face Everton, Newcastle, and Real Madrid (UCL), starting with the confrontation with Wolverhampton on the 5th.

This isn’t the first time Konate has gone down with an injury. Konate suffered a knee injury in a pre-season friendly match ahead of the season and was unable to digest the early part of the season. Coming back from injury, Konate’s first match of the season was away to Arsenal in October.

After the World Cup, Konate’s importance increased. This is because the team’s key defender, Van Dijk, is expected to return in April after suffering a hamstring injury. In the end, coach Jurgen Klopp appointed Konate, Matip and Gomez as center backs after Van Dijk’s injury. However, Konate was also injured, and the defensive line faced a big crisis.

Liverpool’s injury woes this season have been serious. Liverpool are already struggling with injuries to key players including Roberto Firmino, Jota and Luis Dias. In addition, as injuries continued to the defensive line, manager Klopp suffered more and more.
