£60m Liverpool player doesn't appear to be at training today after claims he could miss Carabao Cup final

Liverpool have given some indication as to which players may be missing this weekend's Carabao Cup final.

The Reds are set to take on Chelsea on Sunday and are set to be without a number of key players. One who has been widely expected to miss the game is Dominik Szoboszlai.

Having been injured since the end of January, it has been touch-and-go for Szoboszlai. And although Pep Lijnders appeared to suggest that the Hungarian may just about be fit to play against Chelsea, a video released by Liverpool on X this afternoon may show otherwise.

The clip showing the players arriving at the AXA Training Centre earlier today may have actually contained some good news for Reds fans.

Both Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah are seen kitted up and in good spirits. But the presence of both Nunez and Salah only highlights the fact that Szoboszlai is not seen.

Of course, none of this is a definitive indication on the fitness of any of these three players. We'll have to wait for that. But it isn't especially encouraging where Liverpool's No.8 is concerned.

Szoboszlai not featured in training video As the afternoon wears on, we'll no doubt get some more glimpses of Liverpool in pre-cup final training.

From there, we'll be able to see a little bit better who did and who did not appear in today's session.


With two days until the game, that still won't be conclusive as to who will feature. A lot can happen in 48 hours and things can still change.

Given that all of Nunez, Salah and Szoboszlai have muscle issues though, you'd have to assume that no training today very likely means no game on Sunday.

In that respect, fans will be desperate to see any combination of the trio. As he's been out a little longer than the other two, the expectation will have been that Szoboszlai might miss out anyway. Having him back would purely be a really big bonus.

Cody Gakpo has been praised for 'stepping up,' but we're not all that sure that he did. It would be preferable to have either the Uruguayan or the Egyptian ready to step in for Sunday.

Of course, they may have to settle for places on the bench, but that would be enough for us. As long as they're both able to get on and effect the game at some point, Klopp will be pleased.

It's disappointing news about Szoboszlai on the other hand. But don't rule the PS60m out just yet.
