Liverpool right-back maestro Nathaniel Clyne must right now be wondering what kind of luck he has and if he will not faint soon as he might just have to play every game this season, it seems as the options for his backup seem to be reducing day-by-day.
Now, his backup Connor Randall has picked up a muscle problem and will be unavailable for a while as Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that, “On Tuesday Connor Randall had a problem. I’m not sure what the problem is. It’s something to do with a muscle. He wasn’t good so he couldn’t travel.”
The 20-year-old must be very angry at the moment as he has regularly been on the bench and yet is a natural right-back, and made his debut in Liverpool’s League Cup fixture with Bournemouth but will be out of action for a while more.
He wasn’t so exceptional in the Capital One cup match by any means, but this is a player that could improve and would have helped Clyne get some much needed rest every once in a while.
At the moment Liverpool only have Nathaniel Clyne at right-back and Alberto Moreno as the only left-back option with Jon Flanagan and Jose Enrique out of action due to injury and an acute lack of form on the latter.
Klopp might be looking to fix this by the January transfer window and bring in a couple of fullbacks especially with Clyne’s indiscipline at the moment and to help take some of the fatigue off his defensive options at the moment.
