Fulham is Liverpool’s latest test this season after the memorable 2-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup this past weekend.

The Cottagers will travel to Anfield for the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final this season.

The match is set to kick-off on Wednesday evening at 8pm GMT.

The reverse fixture will then be contested at Craven Cottage on the 24th of January, with that match set to kick-off at 8pm GMT as well.

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have many injuries to contend with heading into the crucial tie tomorrow.

Addressing the media in his pre-Fulham press conference, Pep Lijnders has provided an injury update on Trent Alexander-Arnold:

“So, he hyper extended his knee in the game [against Arsenal]. So he has a little tear in the collateral ligament.”

“He will be out probably three weeks. Big blow, he was one of our most important players. He was always decisive – even in bad spells he was the one that put the ball where it made the difference.”

“We will have to find new dynamics without him because he made our game flexible so big blow.”

“But hopefully three weeks.”

Meanwhile Pep Lijnders has issued a broader update regarding the fitness of many injured an in-doubt Liverpool players.
