Liverpool Head Into Europa League Match Against Union SG With Three Players Missing From Training
Two weeks on from Liverpool’s away win against LASK, the Reds return to Europa League action with a home tie against Union SG. Jurgen Klopp has plenty of names to choose from, but is missing a couple of useful players. Here is an update on Liverpool’s injuries ahead of the match.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to play a role after coming off the bench at the weekend. The fact he was part of the pre-match press conference adds further credence to the notion he will be involved.
One man who is unlikely to feature is Stefan Bajcetic. The youngster played the last few minutes against Leicester but wasn’t in the squad to face Tottenham. He also didn’t take part in full team training on Wednesday, before the game.
Cody Gakpo is “unavailable,” said Klopp, and is set to be out until after the upcoming international break.
Meanwhile, Darwin Nunez should be in the squad again despite not being quite fit enough to start against Tottenham. Whether the manager decides to risk him from the start is another matter.
Thiago and Conor Bradley
Once again, Thiago and Conor Bradley didn’t train.
Liverpool’s 23-man Squad in Pre-Union SG Training
Goalkeepers: Alisson, Kelleher, Jaros
Defenders: Van Dijk, Gomez, Konate, Matip, Quansah, Robertson, Tsimikas, Chambers, Alexander-Arnold
Midfielders: Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Endo, Gravenberch, Jones, Elliott
Forwards: Salah, Nunez, Diaz, Jota, Doak
Liverpool head into their Europa League game against Union SG with three players missing from training. Despite this, Klopp still has plenty of names to choose from and will be hoping for a successful result against their opponents. With Trent Alexander-Arnold likely to play a role and Darwin Nunez potentially starting, Liverpool will be looking to make use of their 23-man squad and get back on track in Europe.
