Premier League hits and misses: Liverpool show injuries won't hold them back

Liverpool show their strength in depth

Injuries? What injuries? Liverpool have a crowded treatment room at their new training ground but that didn't stop them laying down a stunning statement with their 3-0 demolition of Leicester City at Anfield on Sunday evening.

Diogo Jota's brilliant start to life on Merseyside continued with his fourth goal in four home league games - a new club record - to make up for the absence of Mohamed Salah, and across the pitch Liverpool showed their strength in depth to cover for key missing men.

Makeshift centre-back Fabinho was untroubled alongside Joel Matip in the centre of defence, James Milner and then Neco Williams stepped up at right-back, before Mr Utility Milner moved into midfield when Naby Keita went down to play alongside impressive youngster Curtis Jones.

Critics have been quick to talk down this Liverpool side and talk up their rivals, to point out how injuries will open the door for others. But by setting a new unbeaten record at Anfield, Liverpool are joint-top of the Premier League and still the team to beat in the title race.
