Liverpool’s Injury Update: Salah and Alisson’s Final Hurdle

Liverpool’s Injury Dilemma: Salah and Alisson’s Fitness Concerns

As Liverpool gears up for the Carabao Cup final showdown against Chelsea, the team faces a tense wait over the fitness of key players Mohamed Salah and Alisson. The assistant manager of Liverpool has shared the latest on their injury situation, offering a glimmer of hope amidst concerns.

Salah’s Race Against Time

Mohamed Salah’s participation in Sunday’s crucial match hangs in the balance following a hamstring setback. After a triumphant return against Brentford, where he dazzled with a goal and an assist, Salah found himself sidelined once more. Speculation has been rife, with reports from Egypt hinting at a recurrence of his hamstring issue. Despite the uncertainty, the Liverpool camp remains hopeful, with a late fitness test on the cards for Salah alongside teammates Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szoboszlai. “Dom, Darwin and Mo, we have to really see,” remarked the assistant manager, emphasising the club’s cautious optimism. “We have two more days and we will check if they are there, would be great if they can be to be honest. And the rest, Jurgen [Klopp] has already said.”

Alisson’s Sidelines Stretch


The injury woes don’t end with Salah; Liverpool’s guardian between the posts, Alisson, is set for an extended absence. Alongside Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson will miss action until after the March international break. This timeline, confirmed by Brazil’s head coach, adds to the Reds’ challenge as they navigate a critical phase of the season.

Coping with the Injury Crisis

Despite the setbacks, Liverpool’s spirit remains undeterred. The assistant manager’s philosophy of embracing the squad’s current state reflects a resilience that has been characteristic of Liverpool’s approach. “We look to what we have,” he stated, underscoring the importance of adapting and finding strength within. This mindset has paved the way for emerging talents and less-featured players to step up, showcasing the depth and versatility of the squad.

Moving Forward with Positivity

As Liverpool prepares for the clash at Wembley, the focus is on leveraging the available resources to the fullest. The situation presents an opportunity for the team to demonstrate their adaptability and collective strength. With the support of their fans and the rich talent pool from their academy, Liverpool is poised to face the challenge head-on, embodying the spirit of perseverance that has seen them through past adversities.
