Every Liverpool player is available for Fulham, with 10 confirmed absences due to the injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has added his name to the long list of absentees for Liverpool’s Carabao Cup semi-final match against Fulham, where 10 players are out.

Liverpool’s encounter with Fulham in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday could be a significant step toward the team’s first trophy of the campaign. However, it will have to do so without one of its most well-known figures.

The Reds hope to secure a spot at Wembley next month by hosting Marco Silva’s team at Anfield. This season, Jürgen Klopp’s team is still vying for four trophies, but the increasing pressure on the treatment room is making his job more difficult.

Klopp is already missing Wataru Endō and Mohamed Salah because they are at the Asia Cup and Africa Cup of Nations, respectively. Now, he can add Trent Alexander-Arnold to his list of absences. After sustaining a lateral ligament tear against Arsenal over the weekend, the vice captain of Liverpool could miss at least three weeks of action.

 

That will be a significant setback for the Reds, who are already appearing a little worn out in advance of Fulham’s visit. After hurting his hamstring against Newcastle, Dominik Szoboszlai is still sidelined. Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas aren’t anticipated to return until later in the month.

 

Stefan Bajčetić and Thiago Alcântara, on the other hand, will probably have to wait until at least next month to resume training. With Ben Doak also likely to miss a significant amount of time and Joël Matip seemingly out for the season, Liverpool will be without ten players.

 

At least one positive development: Virgil van Dijk is back in the mix after missing the FA Cup victory over Arsenal due to illness. With the options at the back now appearing extremely limited, he will most likely return to the starting lineup.

More young players will be required in the squad, with Owen Beck or Conor Bradley likely to enter the game to cover at full-back. Those named on the bench at the Emirates Stadium, such as Bobby Clark, James McConnell, Kaide Gordon, and Trey Nyoni, will be in the running once more. Here, Liverpool.com provides you with the manager’s complete roster of players for the Reds’ Anfield matchup against Fulham.
