Curtis Jones will not feature in the Reds Premier League opener on Saturday against Norwich City.
The Reds face the freshly promoted Championship champs from last season in their opening game, which might be difficult for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Jones, who suffered a head injury in a match earlier this week, will miss the trip to Carrow Road, according to the German boss.
The departure of Georginio Wijnaldum has given Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp a headache, and there will undoubtedly be new calls to replace him.
However, some Anfield supporters want Harvey Elliott to make his complete Premier League debut.
The England international, who signed a £4.3 million contract with the Merseysiders in 2019, has impressed throughout Liverpool’s pre-season campaign and, according to The Athletic, might start in place of Jones this weekend.
The 18-year-old has the confidence and talent to play and shine against the Canaries, but Klopp may be taking a risk by doing so.
