Liverpool faces a setback as Dominik Szoboszlai is expected to miss today’s crucial Premier League clash against Arsenal. According to This Is Anfield, the Hungarian player won’t be part of the Sunday game, having not traveled to London with the team. The exact reasons for his absence remain unclear, with Jurgen Klopp likely to provide updates during pre-match interviews.
Szoboszlai recently returned from a hamstring injury that kept him out for four games. Despite scoring in Wednesday’s 4-1 win against Chelsea upon his return to the starting XI, doubts surround his availability for the Arsenal match.
While Szoboszlai was seen in training on Friday, reports surfaced on Saturday suggesting he didn’t travel with the squad to London.
His absence poses challenges for Liverpool, but Klopp’s squad is gradually strengthening, with players like Kostas Tsimikas and Thiago nearing their competitive returns. Klopp’s decisions on other changes, aside from Szoboszlai’s absence, will be confirmed at 3:30 pm (GMT), with potential replacements such as Ryan Gravenberch and Harvey Elliott possibly in contention.
