Liverpool have a lot of injury issues in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season and that has affected results as they remain win less at the end of their first three outings in the competition. Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has had to deal with the loss of some first team players since the start of the season.

In his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the home game with newly promoted club Bournemouth, Liverpool boss Klopp gave an injury update on his team. According to him, none of the injured players will return in time for the game with the Cherries at Anfield this weekend. This means that the same squad that prosecuted the Manchester United game on Monday night  will do same with the Bournemouth game on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool are without the likes of Diogo Jota, Joel Matip, Curtis Jones, Thiago Alcantara, Moussa Konate, Naby Keita and many more. They have been sorely missed as Liverpool failed to win any of their first three league games.

In their first league game of the new season, Liverpool came from behind twice to secure a 2-2 draw against Fulham. Serbian international record goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the opener to give Fulham the lead in the first half. His header ensured that the newly promoted team went into the half-time interval with a slim lead. New Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez came off the bench in the second half to score the equaliser for his team before Mitrovic helped Fulham regain the lead from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Dutchman Virgil Van Dijk. Egyptian star Mohamed Salah then scored the second Liverpool equaliser for a share of the spoils between the two teams.

For their second league game, Colombian star Luis Diaz scored in the second half to cancel out the first half opener from Wilfried Zaha as hosts Liverpool and Crystal Palace settled for a 1-1 draw. The Reds ended the game with ten men after the abovementioned Nunez was sent off in the second half. For their third league game this season, Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by hosts and fierce rivals Manchester United earlier in the week.
