Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders has provided a positive injury update for the Liverpool squad this morning.

The Reds will travel to West London to face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Wednesday, with the second-leg semi-final tie set to kick off at 20:00pm GMT.

This season, Fulham has proven to be a difficult opponent for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

In December, at Anfield, Fulham shocked Liverpool with three goals in a crazy Premier League match.

The Reds looked to be losing that one before Trent Alexander-Arnold scored the game-winning goal to make it 4-3.

And again, in order to win the first leg of the semi-final at Anfield, Liverpool had to overcome a 1-0 deficit.

Having already suffered two defeats against the Reds this season, manager Marco Silva will surely be itching for a win on Wednesday.

Pep Lijnders injury update

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, the Dutchman shared the latest Liverpool injury updates.

On Dominik Szoboszlai:

“Dom trained yesterday with us, just a small sided game, but played good, felt good, did some extra work with the sports science team.”

“He is ready but tomorrow comes too early for him, so he will be ready for the weekend if nothing goes wrong.”

On Andrew Robertson:

“He trained yesterday with the team. He did a lot of work & really good rehab throughout the last period, so he’s fit in terms of sports science.”

“Now he has to get fit with proper team training.”

On Kostas Tsimikas:

“Kostas is now four weeks after surgery, so he needs probably two more weeks because we need to make sure that the bone is strong and the bone is healed before he goes into first-team training.” 

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to return imminently.
