Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

:Headline: Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion:
Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Sports Mole

With their quadruple dreams now in the gutter, Liverpool will at least endeavour to strengthen their treble chances when Brighton & Hove Albion arrive at Anfield for Sunday's Premier League contest.

The Reds are no longer in the running for FA Cup glory owing to a pulsating 4-3 loss to Manchester United in the quarter-finals, where Amad Diallo scored a last-gasp extra-time winner for the Red Devils.

However, Jurgen Klopp's EFL Cup holders are still chasing stardom in the Europa League and Premier League, sitting second in the English top-flight table, only behind Arsenal on goal difference.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their showdown with the Seagulls, who reside in eighth spot in the rankings.


Andrew Robertson

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: March 31 (vs. Brighton)

Not for the first time this season, left-back Andrew Robertson hurt himself while on Scotland duty - sustaining a sprained ankle in his side's 1-0 defeat to Northern Ireland. The defender has not suffered a serious issue, but it would be a surprise to see him play this weekend.


Darwin Nunez

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: March 31 (vs. Brighton)

Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz all picked up minor niggles during the FA Cup loss to Man United, and the former's issue was serious enough to rule him out of Uruguay's fixtures during the international break, but he is expected to be fine for this one.


Diogo Jota

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: April 7 (vs. Man United)

Diogo Jota has been sidelined since sustaining a severe knee injury against Brentford in the middle of February, but Klopp is keeping his fingers crossed that the Portuguese attacker might return for the reunion with Man United on April 7.


Curtis Jones

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Shin
Possible return date: March 31 (vs. Brighton)

Curtis Jones was also a victim of the recent win over the Bees, picking up a shin injury in the first half, but there is hope that he could potentially make his competitive comeback against the Seagulls after returning to training.


Alisson Becker

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: Unknown

Alisson Becker is still on the road to recovery from his severe hamstring injury and will not be involved against Brighton, giving Caoimhin Kelleher another chance to impress in between the posts.


Trent Alexander-Arnold

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: April 7 (vs. Man United)

Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold's knee injury should prevent him from being involved on Sunday, but as is the case with Jota, he is targeting a return for the next league meeting with Man United.


Thiago Alcantara

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: Unknown

In contrast, Thiago Alcantara is at risk of missing the rest of the season with the muscle injury he sustained against Arsenal in February, in what may prove to be his final game in a Liverpool shirt.


Ben Doak

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Scottish starlet Ben Doak picked up a serious knee injury while representing the youth team during the latter stages of 2023, and the former Celtic protege will remain out of contention for the foreseeable.


Joel Matip

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Likewise, Joel Matip is set to miss the remainder of the season due to the ACL injury he suffered against Fulham in December, and unless his contract is extended, the Cameroonian has also played his last game for the Reds.


Stefan Bajcetic

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: Unknown

Stefan Bajcetic's calf problem has proven extremely challenging to overcome, but Klopp expects the Spaniard to return to team training after the international break, so a comeback in April is not beyond the realm of possibility.


LIVERPOOL'S SUSPENSION LIST

Liverpool have no players suspended for this match.
