- Liverpool top list of the Premier League clubs with most injured players
- In contrast, Everton have the most fit first team players in the Premier League ahead of match week nine
- Arsenal’s Thomas Partey is also set to miss the clash against Leeds with a thigh injury
A unique table involving Premier League clubs with the least amount of injured players makes for interesting viewing as Liverpool sit bottom of the list.
The international break only seemed to compound Jurgen Klopp’s injury crisis as the gaffer lost several other players to injury.
Notably, the second international break of the new league campaign came at a time when Premier League fixtures were already crammed and this was arguably one of the factors which led to an injury influx among Premier League players.
There are however some clubs who are either lucky, or have not had their players engaged too much in international duty as they have squad which is nearly fully fit.
Liverpool’s Merseyside neighbors Everton have contrasting fortunes as they sit top of the table of teams with most fit key players.
Everton currently only have Seamus Coleman, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin injured and will look forward to the game against Fulham with a lot of optimism.
For Liverpool, it gets worse every week and it is either due to injury of COVID-19, which rendered Mohammed Salah ineligible to feature at least for the next two weeks.
It started with Virgin Van Dijk and as it stands the likes of Fabinho, Thiago, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mo Salah all remain sidelined.
Right back Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson are also major doubts after picking knocks during the international break.
According to data from Talksport, at least 107 players could be ruled out from Premier League action this weekend.
Chelsea are best positioned in terms of having a strong squad which is injury free among the big six clubs.
Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City follow in the list of the big six clubs with most fit players, with Manchester United languishing with Liverpool at the bottom of the pile.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has at least seven injures with Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones set to be certain absentees for the game against Westbrom.

Tottenham have been superb this season in the Premier League and they are currently occupying second position on the standings behind Leicester City who are topping the table.
But despite playing 136 games for Chelsea scoring 69 goals, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is of the believe that Jose Mourinho and his wards have the chance more than his former club.
Hasselbaink believes Tottenham will win the Premier League title because of their front three comprising of Harry Kane, Heung Son Min and Gareth Bale.
