Later today, the Reds kιck off their Europa League campaign on the road in Austria against LASK.
Since Liverpool did not qualify for the Champions League last season, this will be their first appearance since their 2016 final loss to Sevilla. Next year, Jürgen Klopp’s team will try to go back into the Champions League by winning the Premier League or redeeming themselves for their loss to Real Madrid seven years ago.
Although Klopp will likely make adjustments to his starting lineup after Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Wolves, the club has announced that he has brought his strongest possible group of 23 players to Austria.
Since Trent Alexander-Arnold is still recovering from a hamstring ιnjury, he was sent back home, and Thiago Alcântara is still sidelined due to a setback.
The veteran goalkeeper Adrián is not included in Liverpool’s Europa League squad, in contrast to most Premier League rosters, and has been replaced by Vtzslav Jaro, a 22-year-old who will be joining Alisson Becker and Caoimhn Kelleher on their trip.
Despite being substituted during the victory over the Wolves, Jarell Quansah has made the trip and may start again in Austria. Ben Doak, who just signed a new long-term contract last week, will also be eager to make his imprint.
Virgil van Dijk is back in action after serving a Premier League suspension, and summer recruit Ryan Gravenberch made his debut at Molineux, hoping to earn his first start for the club.
