Liverpool's Injury Crisis Before Carabao Cup Final

  • Jurgen Klopp faces injury concerns after Liverpool's win over Brentford.
  • Teenage starlet Trey Nyoni may be thrown into action against Luton Town.
  • Other young players like Lewis Koumas and Jayden Danns are also in contention.
"Jurgen Klopp saw injury strike his Liverpool team during their win over Brentford, leaving him in a tough position in the leadup to the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be forced to throw teenage starlet Trey Nyoni in at the deep end against Luton Town on Wednesday after a raft of injuries struck his squad. After the midweek Luton game comes a trip to Wembley to face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final. Jota is set to miss both games, with a knee injury sidelining him for "months", according to Klopp, but Nunez's return could come sooner. There are also questions over Mohamed Salah, who returned from the bench against Brentford but may have his minutes managed, while Curtis Jones also picked up an issue in West London which is set to keep him out on Wednesday. That leaves attacking midfielder Nyoni as one of a number of candidates for midweek minutes as Klopp considers shuffling his pack before Sunday's final."
