Manchester City and Arsenal have been handed a major boost in the Premier League title race as Liverpool suffer injury blows. Jurgen Klopp's men are currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League after their 41 win over Luton Town on Wednesday night. However, both City and Arsenal have the chance to close that gap when they take on Bournemouth and Newcastle United respectively.

Champions City can cut the gap to just one point, whilst The Gunners can close within two points of The Reds. Speaking ahead of Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Wembley, Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders has confirmed that four players will be unavailable until late March. Alisson Becker is suffering from a muscle injury which requires time for recovery after international break while Trent AlexanderArnold has sustained lateral ligament damage which also rules him out till postinternational break along with Diogo Jota who injured his medial ligament during training sessions before this week’s match fixtures; Curtis Jones' return is expected around or shortly following international break period.

Liverpool is also facing concerns over the availability of Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Dominik Szoboszlai for their upcoming final match. Pep Lijnders expressed uncertainty about their participation after assessing them during training sessions prior to the game.

Despite leading in the Premier League and competing on multiple fronts this season, Liverpool's progress has been hampered by injuries at a critical stage. Longterm issues have kept players like Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic out of action for most of the campaign. During their recent match against Luton Town, Jurgen Klopp had to rely on substitutes such as Bobby Clark, James McConnell, and Jayden Danns due to injury setbacks within his squad.
