Liverpool: Salah and Nunez injury latest provided by Klopp as duo miss Luton clash | Football | Sport

Thiago Alcantara had only recently returned having had hip surgery midway through last year. But he managed only five minutes of this month’s defeat against Arsenal before suffering a fresh problem in the area.

Dominik Szoboszlai, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Stefan Bajcetic and Joel Matip are also currently sidelined. It is unclear if Szoboszlai or Alexander-Arnold will be ready to face Chelsea, while Bajcetic and Matip are long-term absentees.

With Salah and Nunez absent, Klopp selected a front three of Harvey Elliott, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz to face Luton. There are five teenagers on the substitutes’ bench, emphasising Liverpool’s lack of senior options.
