Jurgen Klopp confirms five players will miss Carabao Cup tie

Liverpool will miss five players for Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup tie.

The Reds have announced that Thiago Alcantara, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Roberto Firmino, Neco Williams and Harvey Elliott will all be ruled out through injury.

Liverpool will be facing Norwich City for the third round of the Carabao Cup tie at Carrow Road.

Reds assistant manager Pep Lijnders said: “Let’s start with Trent. Our game basically started at 12 o’clock against Palace. He took responsibility to speak with the doctor.

“It was not easy because these guys – it says a lot about our group anyway – they want to play everything, [even] if they feel a bit shaky or ill. But he took responsibility.

“That’s Trent, there are no COVID symptoms. We test regardless. He should be fine in a few days but Norwich comes too early.

“Thiago, how the gaffer said after the game, it was a calf injury. I can’t say now how long it will take but definitely not tomorrow and not the weekend.”

Lijnders added: “Then we have Bobby, who will do parts of team training but is also not ready, but progressing well. And Neco is progressing well as well.

“[For Williams] tomorrow also comes too early.”
