Europa League squad confirmed, Tierney again & forward to leave – Latest LFC News

Liverpool’s return is growing closer but before then, Tuesday’s news brought confirmation of the Europa League squad and where one of the games will be played, plus an impending player departure.


23-man squad locked in – No Adrian

As This Is Anfield‘s David Lynch reported last week, Adrian has been left out of Liverpool’s Europa League squad – though a loophole would still allow him to feature if needed.

Clubs had to recently lock in their squads for the upcoming European campaign and the Reds submitted a 23-man squad, with places for youngsters Ben Doak and Bobby Clark.

Aside from Adrian‘s omission, there were no big surprises when it came to who was listed with the club’s four new signings all named.

If you were to look at the squad and notice the likes of Harvey Elliott and Stefan Bajcetic are absent, it is because they take up a place on the ‘B list’.

It is not long until the group stage gets underway, Liverpool start with a trip to LASK on September 21.
