Brendan Rodgers Tags Liverpool Injury Crisis As ‘Fake’ After 3-0 Defeat

Brendan Rodgers has questioned the severity regarding the ongoing injury crisis at Liverpool after his Leicester side were soundly beaten 3-0 at Anfield on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino added to Diogo Jota’s strike and an own goal from the unfortunate Jonny Evans was what did the damage.

The Leicester boss has since mentioned the recent spate of injuries and questioned why Jurgen Klopp’s men were considered to be far weaker than their usual selves before the encounter.

“Everybody spoke about Liverpool’s injuries,” Rodgers said. “I don’t go with that narrative.

“I don’t see it as a depleted back line. I know they are missing Virgil van Dijk, but (Joel) Matip is a top player. Fabinho has played there against Chelsea and against top players.

“Andy Robertson has always played, Alisson is the number one goalkeeper and James Milner wherever he plays he does an incredible job.

“Their unbeaten home run is an incredible record, and it shows you the power and the strength in depth that they have. They are an outstanding squad of players.

“They are still very strong, have top players, look at the midfield which had players who always play.
