Liverpool star reacts to not starting Carabao Cup final vs Chelsea, he 'hates' it

Dominik Szoboszlai has missed out on making the matchday squad at Wembley.

Dominik Szoboszlai has made his feelings quite clear after missing out on making Liverpool's squad for the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

Premier League leaders Liverpool have travelled to Wembley this afternoon to take on the Blues with the first domestic silverware of the season up for grabs.

Heading into the clash, the Anfield side had several injury doubts, including midfielder Szoboszlai.

The midfielder's fitness was being monitored, along with that of Mo Salah and Darwin Nunez.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference, assistant boss Pep Lijnders said: "We come in a crazy schedule again, so we play every three days. It's important for us to use each minute, use each day to really look how the players are. This is for Mo, Dom and Darwin.

"Two training sessions to go, let's see how they are and then we can make a decision in the last minute."

And all three players have not made it to the starting line-up or the matchday squad in general, with Jurgen Klopp employing a midfield trio of Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch with no Szoboszlai.

And the front three lined up as Harvey Elliott, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz.

Szoboszlai reacted to not making the matchday squad to Hungarian television and made it clear he wanted to play, in complete disagreement with the club medical staff.

Dominik Szoboszlai has missed out on playing in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea. (

He said: "They (medical team) are careful with me. If it would be up to me I would play (today).

"I hate it. I hate not playing. I had a lot of fights with the doctors."

And Liverpool fans on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter have praised the midfielder's attitude to wanting to play, but broadly agreed the midfielder ought to agree with the opinion of the club's medical department.

It remains to be seen when Szoboszlai will be back in action for Liverpool, with their next game on Wednesday evening in the FA Cup against Southampton.
