Liverpool cannot play recalled loanee Owen Beck at Arsenal in FA Cup due to bizarre suspension rule

Liverpool cannot play recalled loanee Owen Beck at Arsenal in FA Cup due to bizarre suspension rule

Liverpool cannot play recalled loane Owen Beck at Arsenal in FA Cup tomorrow.

Liverpool cannot play a recalled loanee in their FA Cup third-round clash at Arsenal tomorrow due to a bizarre suspension rule.

The Reds travel to North London tomorrow in a huge game this early on in the FA Cup.

Arsenal remain the team to have won the iconic competition the most lifting the trophy 14 times, whilst Liverpool have won eight.

Both sides are fighting each other at the top of the Premier League table so it will be interesting to see if they rotate in this fixture.

Liverpool are suffering from several injuries so will be forced to field a weaker team. They are also without star man Mohamed Salah and midfielder Wataru Endo who are away on international duty.

One position they are massively affected is left-back with both Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas absent.

As a result, Jurgen Klopp has recalled on-loan full-back Owen Beck from Scottish side Dundee to provide cover.

However, a bizarre suspension rule means he won't be available for selection against The Gunners, as per The Athletic.

The 21-year-old picked up two bookings in Dundee's Scottish League Cup campaign last July against Bonnyrigg Rose and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The unserved one match ban from Scotland now applies to his next first-team appearance for Liverpool according to the Football Association.

Beck has made two appearances for Liverpool previously both in the Carabao Cup back in 2021, and did well on-loan in Scotland.

He has attracted interest from other clubs north of the border with reports that giants Celtic and Rangers are both interested in the player should he become available again.

The Welshman came through Liverpool's academy and is the great-nephew of club legend Ian Rush.

On recalling him, boss Klopp said: "He made big steps. Now the situation here is clear – we lost two of our left-backs so it makes a sense bring back a boy we like who is available to us."
