Jurgen klopp inform liverpool will host Unai Emery struggling arsenal in the EFL cup clash at Anfield later tonight.
The premier league leaders Will hope their excellent winning record at home tonight when they take on Unai Emery’s men. The last time this two teams met was in the premier league encounter when liverpool thrash arsenal 3-1, of course it was their star man Mohammed Salah who was at it once again, doing what he loves to do best, destroying arsenal defense.
But in tonight encounter, it looks like the Reds will be without their star man Mohammed Salah who came off as a substitute in the past premier league win again Tottenham due to an ankle problem he picked up during Leicester city match which kept him out of the Manchester United game.
Jurgen klopp later reveal that Salah had problems with the same ankle that was injured against Leicester city earlier this month.
The Reds front three which is a combination of Sadio mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohammed Salah are said to be the most dangerous and best front three in world football. But without Mohammed Salah, the front three and liverpool have struggled to make an impact in any game and this was completely shown when the Red played out a 1- 1 draw with Manchester United, a game that saw Salah sat out.
Liverpool is also set to be without their star defender Joel Matip who has arguably been their unsung hero across the back line forming an intimidating center back pairing alongside Van dijk. Matip is set to miss the next 10 games with a knee problem.
Van dijk also picked up a knock on their last premier league win against Tottenham but managed to play the full 90 minutes. Liverpool boss later revealed that Van dijk got a dead leg , but he is adamant that he will be fine.
So without this key men tonight, liverpool could struggle.
