Liverpool to be without key trio for League Cup clash with Lincoln

Joe Gomez

Lincoln vs Liverpool

Liverpool are set to get their 2020/21 League Cup campaign underway this coming Thursday, as they aim to add the title to the club’s trophy cabinet for the 9th time.

The Reds actually do not have an overly impressive record in the competition under Jurgen Klopp, though they did make it to the quarter-final stages last season, despite utilising youth players for the most part.

As a result, they should be more than confident of seeing off League One outfit Lincoln in the 3rd round.

Updates on Henderson, Matip & Gomez

Pepijn Lijnders, assistant manager at Anfield, was the man tasked with speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming tie.

During the press conference, Lijnders provided updates on a trio of first-team stars.

Both Joe Gomez and Joel Matip missed the Reds’ trip to Stamford Bridge over the weekend. And both are once again set to miss out on Thursday, though the former is expected to train on Friday.

Lijnders also confirmed that Jordan Henderson, who came off at half-time vs Chelsea, will too miss Thursday’s game.

However, the Liverpool skipper could be back in time to face Arsenal:

“[For] Joe [it] comes too soon, he will train Friday with the team – that’s good news, to be honest. 

“Joel will probably only come back during the international break; that will take some longer time, some more time. 

“Hendo, hopefully he will get back next week, but tomorrow for sure is too soon for Hendo. Maybe [back for Arsenal], yeah, hopefully.”
