Klopp's departure has shocked world football.

The 2023-24 Premier League injury table: Liverpool top, Man Utd just behind…

Injuries are the bane of Premier League squads right now, especially with the final three months of the season looming and the intensity of matches only increasing.

As the number of games increases – the European competitions have also returned – almost every club is suffering with several notable absentees.

Speaking last September, Burnley boss Vincent Kompany came up with radical plans to prevent the number of injuries to top footballers by limiting them to 60 games per season.

“For the players at the top, who have to play for their national teams and all of these other competitions, it should be capped appearances within a season,” Kompany said.

“Put a number on it. It’s not for me to put a number on it, (but) 60 or 65 games. They (still) have to work hard, don’t get me wrong, but 60 games takes a little bit away. It would put the pressure more on coaches and national teams to come to a common-sense calendar.

“There is a part of the league with an enormous amount of international players playing all over the world who get very little rest.”

Kompany is unlikely to get his wish – both UEFA and FIFA are seemingly committed to expanding tournaments until the earth collapses – meaning the likelihood of injuries will only increase for elite players.

We’ve listed all the Premier League players currently carrying injuries, sorted by club, and given them an approximate date of return.

Note: Data comes from a combination of Premier Injuries and Transfermarkt as of 23/02/2024. Not all injury-related absence has been marked as such on Transfermarkt, and so we’ve done our best to pick through the absences to determine whether it was related to an injury or not.
