Liverpool injury news breaking: At least two missing Manchester City amid Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez updates

Liverpool infirmary: Latest updates as Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez could both be back in contention against Man City but Jürgen Klopp has more.

Liverpool may not play until they face Manchester City on April 1, but there are still plenty of injury updates to deal with with Luis Díaz hoping to be back in contention for the final 12 games of the season and many more in the international arena.

Liverpool are sixth in the Premier League as they stand, with Manchester City, Chelsea and then Arsenal in their next three games, all in just nine days.

Newcastle United, who have played the same number of games, are currently five points ahead of Liverpool, while Tottenham are seven points clear but have played two games and are yet to come to Anfield.

Manchester United meanwhile, despite that 7-0 defeat to Liverpool, are third on 50 points – and have also played 26 games so far, the same as Liverpool – and now look out of sight. Here at we try to keep you up to date with the latest injury news after every match. Here’s how things go during the international break and before the Premier League race as you chase the top four places.

Luis Diaz

The non-away players will return to training in Kirkby early next week to prepare for the Manchester City game at the Etihad Stadium, and Luis Díaz is expected to be among those taking part in the full session.

The Colombian hasn’t played since he was injured in mid-October. His return will be a big boost, even if Díaz won’t be immediately nervous again.

Thiago Alcantara

Thiago has missed Liverpool’s last eight games with a hip injury and there is no definitive timetable for his return yet, although given other midfield absences it is hoped that will be back as soon as possible.

If he isn’t among the training photos next week, Jurgen Klopp will almost certainly be asked for an update ahead of the trip to Manchester City.

Darwin Nunez

The Uruguay striker missed the international break with a cut on his foot, ECHO reports missed games against Japan and South Korea.

This injury was picked up in the second leg in Spain against Real Madrid but doesn’t look like a long term injury meaning he will hopefully be back in the squad early next week and can be fully involved.

Stefan Bajcetic and Calvin Ramsay

Both young talents will miss the rest of the season with injuries, Bajčetić himself confirmed this before the start of the international break and Ramsay underwent surgery. Bajčetić in particular will be a loss after making much of the starting XI in recent weeks, but now others will have to take his place.
