Liverpool vs Fulham – Carabao Cup semi-final LIVE: Bradley replaces injured Alexander-Arnold for huge Carabao Cup semi

Welcome to Liverpool vs Fulham

Liverpool welcome Fulham to Anfield for the Carabao Cup semi-final with The Cottagers having their first taste of the penultimate hurdle of a cup competition.

Jurgen Klopp will have Virgil Van Dijk back tonight after his skipper missed their trip to Arsenal in the FA Cup due to illness.

However, he has lost the services of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai who join Andrew Robertson, Kostas Tsimikas, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara, Ben Doak and Joel Matip in the Anfield treatment room.

Mohamed Salah is off at AFCON while Wataru Endo is at the Asian Cup meaning Conor Bradley, Ryan Gravenberch and Diogo Jota are likely to freshen up the starting XI.

Fulham have lost Calvin Bassey, Alex Iwobi and Fode Ballo-Toure to the AFCON tournament also.

Adama Traore and Tim Ream both missed the game on the weekend although the latter has a chance of making the game this evening.

Bern Leno, Joao Palhinha and Raul Jimenez are likely to come back into the side after sitting out the weekend’s FA Cup tie, meaning ex-Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson is likely to be resigned to a place on the bench.

With the semi-final being a two-legged affair, Fulham will be looking more at the return leg as opposed to winning the game itself this evening.
