Football News

The injury problems currently inflicting Liverpool's first-team appears to know no bounds after rumours surfaced that Simon Mignolet was the latest man to cram into the Anfield treatment room.

Reports started to appear on social media following the news that Jurgen Klopp had recalled Danny Ward from his loan deal at Aberdeen. The 22-year-old was enjoying a fruitful spell with the Scottish club and, according to the BBC, had become a favourite amongst fans.

Ward's impressive performances for Aberdeen have already caught the eye of Wales manager Chris Coleman who, in recent games, has promoted the 22-year-old from youth level. He is still waiting for his first senior cap but is expected to go to Euro 2016 this summer.

The news will come as a relief to many Liverpool fans, who have been left fretting about the idea of Adam Bogdan returning to that space between the goalposts. The Hungarian has been called upon several times this season and, in response, has made several high-profile errors.

His latest – conceding directly from corner against Exeter in a 2-2 FA Cup draw – appears to have been the final straw for Klopp, with Ward expected to go straight into the squad for Wednesday's game against Arsenal.

Injury rumours

But the biggest question will be as to whether Ward is on the bench or is actually starting. If some rumours on Twitter are to be believed, Mignolet, who himself has not been covered in glory this season, has suffered an injury and Ward is set to play against the Premier League leaders.

The Ward wall

Ward was due to be at Aberdeen until the summer and had kept 11 clean sheets and made an impressive 61 saves in 29 appearances in the Scottish Premiership. He will be sorely missed by a team hoping to chase down Celtic at the top of the league.
