Liverpool could be handed a major boost ahead of the League Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday, with Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Dominik Szoboszlai all in contention to play after injury problems.

All three sat out Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Luton as Liverpool moved four points clear at the top of the table despite missing nine first-team players.

However, Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, and Diogo Jota will not be available for the match at Wembley as Liverpool aim to win the first of a potential quadruple of trophies in Jurgen Klopp’s final season.

Liverpool hammered Chelsea 4-1 in the Premier League less than a month ago, but Lijnders is wary of the Blues due to the improvements they have made since then.

Klopp’s assistant, Pep Lijnders, told Friday’s pre-match press conference, “Dom, Darwin, and Mo, we have to really see. We have two more days, today’s session and tomorrow’s session, and at the last minute, we will check if they can be there.”.

Chelsea are 10th in the Premier League table after a difficult start to Mauricio Pochettino’s reign, but Liverpool did Liverpool a favor in the title race by holding Manchester City to a 1-1 draw last week. Lijnders believes the Argentine is beginning to find the right balance in a squad full of young talent that has cost more than ÂŁ1 billion ($1.3 billion) in transfer fees over the past two years.

Kloop told uncoveredug news reporters that “we are going to prepare with only one target—giving joy and emotions to the fans. If you want to describe our football philosophy, it is to give joy and emotions to the fans.”.

In conclusion, Klopp is in line to round off his glorious spell at Anfield in style. The Reds could match Manchester United’s record of 20 English top-flight league titles and are also in the last 16 of both the FA Cup and Europa League.
