Social media reacts as Liverpool injury crisis makes full XI

So here we are. Liverpool face a midweek fixture vs Luton and the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea with potentially an entire XI of players unavailable.

The Reds' 4-1 win over Brentford last Saturday came at a serious cost, with Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota both suffering relatively serious blows, while Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah too aggravated issues.

Meanwhile, Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai remain out for the 'foreseeable' future with various issues, joining Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic and Ben Doak in the very crowded treatment room. Oh and Thiago. Can't forget Thiago.

Jurgen Klopp revealed the situation is 'not great' ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash with Luton, though detailed updates on return timelines was scant in the manager's pre-match press conference.

News of Salah and Nunez being monitored 'day by day' broke late last night, while Brazil's national team manager has indicated that Alisson will be out until at least the end of March. MARCH.

Here's how Liverpool fans on X (Twitter) reacted to the ever-deepening injury crisis.

The latest updates mean the Reds can now complete an entire starting lineup of injured or doubtful players, though Salah may have to fill in at left back...

Liverpool's crisis could hardly come at a worse time, with the Reds facing nine games before the end of March — including, of course, the Carabao Cup final, Merseyside Derby, a title showdown with Manchester City, FA Cup fifth round and Europa League last 16.

Klopp also suggested to reporters that he could turn to Liverpool's academy in the coming games, name-checking a host of young stars — several of whom (including 16-year-old Trey Nyoni) who are yet to make their first-team debuts.

Other fans had more creative solutions for how to fill the gaps left in the injury ravaged squad.

If you don't laugh, you'll cry.
