Liverpool fans give mixed reaction to Firmino injury news

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Roberto Firmino is an injury doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash against West Ham United, but some fans are not worried if he misses out.

The Merseyside outfit’s final two games of the season are crucial in their pursuit of a Champions League spot.

As it stands, the Reds are third in the table, four points above fifth-placed Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger’s men have a game in hand.

Manchester United also have an extra match and are five points behind, but they face second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the North London outfit’s final game at White Hart Lane this weekend – a tough one to win.

During this morning’s press conference, Klopp told reporters that both Firmino and Lucas Leiva are injury doubts, but neither have been ruled out as yet.

Firmino has been a regular feature in Liverpool’s attack this season, playing in all but two of the Reds’ Premier League games.

The Brazilian has scored 11 goals and registered six assists in the top flight, and while some supporters are concerned that he could miss the trip to the London Stadium, others think that his absence paves the way for a positive formation change, with Daniel Sturridge handed a rare start.
