Liverpool handed massive injury boost which could have major impact on Premier League title race

Liverpool could be handed a huge injury boost in the race for the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are currently top of the Premier League table after collecting 51 points from 23 matches.

But the title race has now been blown wide open after Arsenal recorded a vital 3-1 win over Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

As a result, the Reds’ lead at the top has been cut to just two points.

Reigning champions Manchester City can overtake Liverpool if they win their game in hand.

Klopp has had to deal with some big absentees during the last few weeks, talisman Mohamed Salah is currently sidelined with an injury.

However, the Reds could reportedly receive a timely injury boost.

Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai suffered a hamstring injury at the start of January but returned for Liverpool’s 4-1 win against Chelsea.

Szoboszlai was then left out of the squad for the defeat against Arsenal, sparking fears of a recurrence.

According to journalist Bence Bocsak, Szoboszlai could be back sooner than it has been reported.

Hewrote on social media: “Dominik Szoboszlai was seen by a specialist in the Hungarian national team headquarters in Telki on Monday. But the specialist could not diagnose any further issues with his hamstring.

“He will now return to #LFC. No date set for his return to action. But my understanding is that it will be sooner than it has been reported.”

Speaking about Szoboszlai on Sunday, Klopp said: “Doma felt pain in the same or at least very close part of his thigh as where his injury was before.

“During the match [against Chelsea] he was fine, but afterwards he felt a bit, so we looked at him and unfortunately it became clear to us that he has no chance to play in today’s match.”

Liverpool are back in Premier League action this weekend as they welcome Burnley to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
