Jurgen Klopp missed Liverpool’s game against Chelsea last week after testing positive for covid-19, also goalkeeper Alisson, defender Joel Matip and striker Roberto Firmino returned suspected positive tests.

The German is set to miss the trip to the Emirates Stadium if it takes place on Thursday, also Alisson, Matip, and Firmino are also expected to be ruled out of the game.

Given that Alisson is likely to miss out once again, Liverpool would run a high risk that their game might have to be postponed if they lose another goalkeeper.

The EFL, which runs the Carabao Cup, says games can be postponed if teams cannot send a team of 13 outfield players and a goalkeeper.

If the game is postponed it will also mean that Liverpool’s FA Cup clash at home to Shrewsbury on Sunday is at risk.
