Liverpool head into their Europa League game against Union SG with three players missing from training.
Two weeks on from Liverpool’s away win vs. LASK, the Reds return to Europa League action with a home tie against Union SG.
In a week filled with debate around dodgy officiating, it is a relief to be able to get back on the pitch and somewhat right the wrongs of last Saturday.
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:
- Stefan Bacjetic – doubt, didn’t train
- Darwin Nunez – doubt to start but trained as normal
- Caoimhin Kelleher (knee) – unavailable
- Cody Gakpo (knee) – unavailable
- Thiago (hip) – unavailable
- Conor Bradley (back) – unavailable
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.
He also didn’t take part in full team training on Wednesday, before the game.
