A significant lineup change is anticipated for Jürgen Klopp as Liverpool prepares for their Emirates FA Cup third-round match against Arsenal. Due to Wataru Endo and Mohamed Salah’s international commitments as well as Dominik Szoboszlai’s hamstring injury from the previous game against Newcastle United, Klopp will need to make at least three changes for Sunday’s match at Emirates Stadium. Szoboszlai will miss at least two games due to his injury, which Klopp has confirmed is a hamstring strain. These games are Arsenal vs. Fulham and the forthcoming Carabao Cup semi-final.
Dominik Szoboszlai has a positive outlook despite his injury, and Klopp expressed optimism about his recovery during the player’s pre-match press conference. He did, however, confirm that Szoboszlai would not be available for the Carabao Cup match midweek or the game on Sunday.
With the exception of the long-term absentees Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, Ben Doak, Joel Matip, Andy Robertson, and Kostas Tsimikas, Klopp gave his assurance that no new injuries have surfaced within the squad. Recently recalled from loan Owen Beck will not play in the tie.
While Klopp mulls over possible lineup changes, he recognizes Arsenal’s difficulty and stresses the significance of winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup.
The manager of Liverpool emphasizes that despite the absence of important players, a competitive team is still available and that it is important to concentrate on each game separately. Oleksandr Zinchenko of Arsenal may not be able to play in the coming game because of a calf problem, and manager Mikel Arteta has not yet decided who will start in goal.
