Dominik Szoboszlai has not featured for Liverpool since the Reds’ 4-2 victory over Newcastle United on New Years Day.

He was withdrawn with an apparent hamstring injury that would later be confirmed by Jurgen Klopp.

The Hungarian’s tenacity and work rate in the middle of the park has been missed.

Jurgen Klopp and co. will want Szoboszlai back as soon as possible – especially with the absence of Wataru Endo until possibly the middle of February.

The Liverpool squad were training at the AXA Training Centre yesterday afternoon as they prepare for a trip to Bournemouth.

The Cherries have seen a sharp upturn in results recently.

Former Liverpool man Dominic Solanke is only behind Haaland and Salah for goals netted this Premier League season with 12.

Andoni Iraola has all but secured Premier League survival for Bournemouth.

They have won four out of their last five league games, and will be a force to be reckoned with at the Vitality Stadium.

However, Reds fans will not be happy with the latest injury update on Szoboszlai.

Dominik Szoboszlai not in training

As mentioned, the Reds squad were training yesterday afternoon in preparation for the clash on the south coast.

Liverpool journalist Neil Jones, writing on his Substack, has reported that Dominik Szoboszlai was not spotted in training yesterday.

Of course, he could have been somewhere doing individual work, but the fact he is not in team training suggests he is ruled out for the Bournemouth match.

It could also be that the medical staff at Kirkby are ensuring that Szoboszlai takes his time in recovering.

It would not be a good look if Szoboszlai were to aggravate the injury after rushing to return.

The man himself confirmed this could be a possibility, previously saying about his injury:

“I’d rather miss one more match, if that’s what it takes, so that I don’t injure the previous strain and can play continuously.”
