While the Liverpool express has not slowed in recent times, they have still been battling through injuries to some of the biggest names in the squad. On the eve of the League Cup semifinal, some key members are soon set to return.
Andy Robertson has been out for months as he worked his way back from a severe shoulder injury. His direct replacement, Kostas Tsimikas, then got hurt as well which means we have seen Joe Gomez being deployed on the left side of the defense on more than one occasion.
Robbo coming back is going to be a massive boost to not only the defense, but he will provide another link to the attack and his very good passing range could unlock the forwards even more.
It's expected that he will be ready for selection for Wednesday's huge trip to Fulham. His spirit and tenacity have been missed.
In addition to the Scot, Liverpool should see the returns of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai this weekend during FA Cup action against Norwich.
Both men have been dealing with muscle issues of varying degrees but they are on the mend and should be raring to go against the Canaries. Conor Bradley has filled in admirably for TAA while the midfield has been held down via group effort.
Yet, both of these players are match-winners on their day and getting them back in the fold is going to be crucial as the business end of the season picks up.
Finally, Mohamed Salah's strained hamstring that he picked up while playing for Egypt at AFCON is a bit more serious then we originally thought.
It's looking closer to a month away from the Reds, which is a nightmare come to life of AFCON being in January.
However, the sparkling form of Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez stepping up means the attack is still in good hands. Especailly with Luis Diaz and Cody Gakpo still fit and firing. Not ideal, but the Reds attack should be fine until Mo heals up in mid-February.
