Why Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are missing for Liverpool against Cardiff


Why Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are missing for Liverpool against Cardiff

In a 4th round that has already thrown up plenty of shocks and nail-biting moments for several Premier League sides, Liverpool will be hoping for an altogether more simple affair as they take on struggling Championship side Cardiff at Sunday lunchtime.

The Welsh outfit currently sit in 20th, a full 38 places behind Jurgen Klopp’s side in the football pyramid,but have won their last two games in all competitions and travel to Anfield looking to make it three on the bounce.

However, it is a strong Liverpool side that awaits them. Diogo Jota, Virgil Van Dijk, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all what could be considered starting XI players in any game that the reds play, while the likes of Kostas Tsimikas, Roberto Firmino, Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita all see regular Premier League gametime too.

Meanwhile, there is a potential debut in the pipeline for new addition Luis Diaz, who completed his visa checks and work permit clearance in time to make the substitutes bench for Klopp and co..

Gomez and Oxlade-Chamberlain miss out

However, there is no space for English duo Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Joe Gomez, both of whom have been pushed to the fringes of the squad in recent times. However, both would likely have played this tie, with Klopp keen to keep his players fresh for other fights.

Unfortunately, though, the pair have both tested positive for COVID-19, and therefore could take no part in the encounter.

We wish them a speedy recovery.
