Liverpool's EFL Cup win over the weekend was bittersweet for Liverpool fans. While the club celebrated another trophy under Jurgen Klopp, the team suffered more injuries again. This seems like a curse within the squad because a few weeks ago against Brentford, Liverpool also suffered a couple of injuries during the game. Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota were subbed off the pitch due to injuries in the first half. Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah played the game against Brentford but sustained injuries and did not feature in the final against Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool must prepare for another game just days after lifting the EFL Cup trophy at Wembley Stadium. Tomorrow, Liverpool will play Southampton in the 5th round of the FA Cup at Anfield. Klopp spoke about the game and said, "It would be really helpful if we (the fans) could create something special on Wednesday night. I know I ask this quite a lot. It’s a tricky time. We need our people for that. There’s only one advantage we can have, and that’s Anfield. Yesterday was a massive recovery day and appreciation day. Only the very young boys trained yesterday; everyone else recovered. Today is our only session for everyone prior to Southampton."

Klopp then addressed the injuries of Ryan Gravenberch, Endo, Salah, Szoboszlai, Nunez, and Thiago. Klopp said, "Ryan[Gravenberch] is not available. Ligament injury, could’ve been much worse, but bad enough for ruling him out of this and the next game. We will see. We need miracles for a few players. It’s touch & go with a lot of the players that weren’t available for the final. Darwin, Mo, Dom…we have to see what they can do today. Wataru [Endo] got a proper knock as well."

Thiago could have played his last Liverpool game against Arsenal a few weeks ago

During the Arsenal 3-1 win against Liverpool, Thiago Alcantara returned from injury after not playing for nearly a year. He came back to play for 10 minutes but suffered another injury that could cost him the rest of the season. When asked about Thiago's injury update, Klopp said, "No time scale. I don’t know (if he will play again this season) it’s not a short-term thing. It’s the same region."
