The Argentine midfielder faced some robust challenges during a fierce midfield contest at Bramall Lane in the first half. Despite returning for the second half, he fell injured shortly before the hour mark and had to be substituted, with Curtis Jones stepping in.

This injury will deeply concern manager Jurgen Klopp, who has recently grappled with another setback – Joel Matip’s injury in the weekend’s clash against Fulham, with Klopp revealing Matip’s expected lengthy absence. The Reds are already missing key players like Alisson, Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, and Andy Robertson.

Since his summer move from Brighton, Mac Allister has been a crucial presence for Liverpool, featuring in nearly every Premier League game this season, except for the suspension that saw him miss the 3-0 win against Brentford.

Klopp faces a mounting roster crisis and will be hoping for a positive prognosis regarding Mac Allister’s injury, given the current list of challenges. His availability for the upcoming match against Crystal Palace remains uncertain at this point.
