Every Liverpool player unavailable for Bournemouth as Mohamed Salah cover in but four ruled out

Liverpool takes on Bournemouth in the League Cup on Wednesday. Up to five players could be missing for Jürgen Klopp, but a Mohamed Salah alternative is available.

 

It’s time for Liverpool to switch focus back onto the Carabao Cup. That comes after Sunday’s convincing 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the league.

 

The Reds have made a bright start to the League Cup so far, having eased past Leicester City at Anfield in the last round. And with an away clash against Bournemouth now between Liverpool and the next stage, Jürgen Klopp will be confident of advancing further.

 

In particular, Liverpool’s strength-in-depth available this season has paved a clear opportunity for a cup run in this competition, and while Klopp will still make a number of changes with priority on the Premier League, the Reds should line up with a side more than capable of getting the job done. Liverpool.com has got the latest on who is available for the trip to the south coast.

 

Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders confirmed that both Thiago Alcântara and Stefan Bajčetić are set to remain out for this one. Thiago is yet to make a single appearance for the club so far this season, while Bajčetić has been unlucky to face further injury problems after he featured against the Foxes in the previous round.

 

There was more positive news, however, regarding winger Ben Doak. The Scottish starlet trained on Monday, and it is understood that he could be in the squad — providing an opportunity for Liverpool to rest Mohamed Salah.
