Liverpool dealt massive injury blow ahead of FA Cup clash with Arsenal

Liverpool dealt massive injury blow ahead of FA Cup clash with Arsenal

Liverpool are set to take on Arsenal in the Third Round of the FA Cup on Sunday

Liverpool have been dealt a huge injury blow ahead of their FA Cup Third Round clash against Arsenal.

During Liverpool’s 4-2 win against Newcastle United on Monday night, midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai was substituted after sustaining an injury.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp revealed after the match that the Hungarian injured his hamstring and needed a scan to determine the seriousness.

With the likes of Wataru Endo and Mohamed Salah unavailable due to international duty, Liverpool have been left sweating over the severity of Szoboszlai’s injury.

Ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Arsenal, it has been confirmed that Szoboszlai is set to miss the Anfield club’s next two matches.

Klopp said during his pre-match press conference: “It's an injury. Muscle, hamstring. We will have to see. Dom is very positive, not a lot of pain but no chance for Sunday. Not for then Wednesday. Then we will see. After that, hopefully, he might be back but we don't know.”

The Liverpool boss spoke about the possibility of rotating his squad against Mikel Arteta’s Gunners.

Klopp said: “I think we rotated a lot in the first half of the season, we just did because we thought the boys can do it. It never happens that we don't care how we play.


The main reason for the impact from the bench was that, it's massive, they all have rhythm. We bring in boys who can play to their best and that is what we've done. I am sure if Arsenal is a game to rotate. I am not sure we have the opportunity to do that.”

He added: “We can line up a good team and I am sure that is what we do. If it looks like rotation I don't know.

“We have a few days between games, so that is long and there is no need for rotation but then we have [Fulham] and both are same imortance, nothing inbetween we want to go to the final but also the next round but it's probably the most tricky draw you can get.”
