Liverpool’s plans are substantially hampered as they prepare to meet their age-old rivals, Everton, in a much-anticipated fixture at Anfield. The Reds could face this vital match without six key members of their squad, creating a selection quandary that could decide the fate of this high-stakes match.
The health of Liverpool’s team is at the heart of their current problem. With Curtis Jones on suspension, his absence is a significant blow. The absence of Thiago Alcantara and Caoimhin Kelleher complicates matters even more, robbing the team of critical tactical variety.
However, the problems do not stop there. The availability of Cody Gakpo, Stefan Bajcetic, and the crucial Andy Robertson is shrouded in mystery. The nature of Robertson’s shoulder injury, the severity of which remains unknown, has fans and commentators alike guessing on the potential influence on the team’s dynamic.
