Liverpool Want Carabao Tie Against Arsenal Postponed Over Suspected COVID 19 Outbreak

Due to Covid instances in the club, Liverpool cancelled first-team training on Tuesday and requested that their Carabao Cup meeting with Arsenal be postponed.

Despite having a fully vaccinated squad, Liverpool have been hit by a series of positive tests in recent weeks, and were without goalkeeper Alisson Becker, defender Joel Matip, and forward Roberto Firmino for Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea, as well as manager Jurgen Klopp and three other staff members.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta missed the weekend game against Manchester City due to his second positive Covid-19 test, while forward Eddie Nketiah was also out due to Covid-19.

However, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Naby Keita have all joined their respective teams ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations, reducing the squad even more.

As a result, Liverpool has made a formal request to have their Carabao Cup match against Arsenal postponed this weekend.

Due to their own positive tests, Liverpool had to make do without Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, and Curtis Jones earlier this month.
