Hamstring Liverpool

Just when you think the hamstring curse is over this happens...

There are a few curses in football at the moment – from Aaron Ramsey killing off celebrities whenever he scores, to Béla Guttmann's curse on Benfica.

However, one of the most unfortunate or annoying if you're a fan is Liverpool's hamstring curse. You may laugh, but the Reds have managed to pick up a load of injuries throughout the season and most of them have been pulled hamstrings. 

Liverpool currently have three senior players out with hamstring injuries – Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel.

Oh dear! This is why you can't have nice things Liverpool! As you can imagine, fans (even Reds fans) had a right good laugh at Jurgen Klopp's side misfortune:
