Liverpool is finding it difficult to get back to winning ways, having faced a humiliating defeat by 5-0 at the hands of arch-rivals Manchester City and ending their last game against Burnley in a lacklustre draw.
However, the Reds are hopeful that this early phase of disappointment will change with the inclusion of some key players into their side, one of them being the England international Nathaniel Clyne, who is on the road to recovery from a prolonged injury that kept him out of action for a significant amount of time since the last term.
The Reds are facing a world of difficulties in their defensive lineup since the start of the new season and have failed to find a proper replacement for the English right back.
Though youngster Trent Alexander Arnold has tried his level best to fend off the opposition attackers and make runs down the right flank, he has not been able to establish himself as a viable alternative for Clyne in the team so far, leaving a big gap in the backline of the Merseyside club for the rivals to take advantage of.
The 26-year-old has been a regular starter for the Reds since his arrival at Anfield in 2015 from fellow Premier League rivals Southampton and has already made 93 appearances for the club so far in his tenure. However, it was not a very good season for the English ace last time around as he met with an injury that compelled him to stay away from the action out on the pitch.
However, the player is reportedly looking to head back into the starting lineup and is presently training hard in order to get himself fit as soon as possible. Clyne’s arrival in the side will definitely be a big boost for Liverpool, as they might hope for a good defensive show led by the English right back and help them strive for better results in the forthcoming matches of the season.
The 26-year-old full-back has been one of the best players in the defensive lineup for the Reds so far, helping his side to get the better of their opposition players and keep them at bay as much as possible. The news of his return to training must bring some relief for their manager Jurgen Klopp, who might be looking to use him to stabilise the backline as soon as possible in domestic as well as European tournaments. Can he change Liverpool’s fortunes?
