Injuries have ruled out a number of Liverpool players for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Chelsea. Assistant manager Pep Lijnders has updated the status of Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.

Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah are in a race against time to recover in time for Liverpool’s Carabao Cup final match against Chelsea.

Before Sunday’s championship game at Wembley Stadium, both players’ health will be assessed. They were not present for the Reds’ 4-1 victory against Luton Town in the middle of the week. Assistant manager Pep Lijnders was questioned on Friday regarding Liverpool’s current injury problems.

We definitely need to see, Dom [Szoboszlai], Darwin, and Mo,” Lijnders remarked. “Two more days remain. The sessions of today and tomorrow. We will make a last-minute inspection. It really would be wonderful if they could make it.”

Nevertheless, Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Curtis Jones, and Diogo Jota won’t be ready for the match and won’t return until after the international break in mid-month. Alisson sustained a hamstring injury, Jones suffered an ankle strain, and Alexander-Arnold aggravated a knee issue that had kept him out of action in January. None of these players will be ready to play against Brighton in the Premier League on March 31.

“Ali, muscle injury, after the international break, it will really take time,” Lijnders stated. “Lateral ligament, Trent. After the international break, he will be. medial ligament, jots. After the international break, he will be.

Curtis has a pain on his ankle. He plans to return sometime during the international break. We are unsure of [the precise date] after the international break.

In their most recent game against Luton, Liverpool used a young bench, and Lijnders is adamant that manager Jurgen Klopp will do the same if necessary on Sunday. The assistant manager remarked, “The good thing we always did in the past is we looked to what we have.” “We strive to maintain the success that comes from accepting what we have and not focusing on what we lack. That truly makes me happy.

“You get young players and players who didn’t play five straight games but who can now come up with a few injuries. That is just amazing. This season marks the creation of three or four new teams in the same season.
