Latest squad update from Newsnow Liverpool as the Reds gear up to face Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend.
As Liverpool FC’s winter break nears its conclusion, fans are anxiously awaiting the return of midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, who has been recovering from a hamstring injury.
Jurgen Klopp, at the helm of the Reds, is gearing up to lead the team against Bournemouth on the south coast this Sunday, and the potential return of the Hungarian midfielder adds an extra layer of excitement for supporters.
Szoboszlai, sidelined with a hamstring issue since the New Year’s Day clash against Newcastle United, has utilized the winter break to concentrate on his rehabilitation. An update on his fitness offers a glimmer of hope for Liverpool fans, eager to witness his return and his contribution to the team’s midfield dynamics (h/t Standard).
The dynamic midfielder’s potential availability for upcoming fixtures could furnish Jurgen Klopp with additional options and depth in the midfield department. During his absence, a midfield trio featuring Alexis Mac Allister, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott or Ryan Gravenberch is expected.
Yet, the focus isn’t solely on Szoboszlai. Trent Alexander-Arnold is in the midst of recovering from a knee injury. The vice-captain hyperextended his knee during Liverpool’s FA Cup triumph over Arsenal at the Emirates, playing through until the end of the game and proving to be the difference-maker.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the return of the influential right-back, eager to witness his trademark creativity back in action.
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp Face a Plethora of Injuries

Thiago, in particular, is expected to receive a warm welcome upon his comeback. Having been sidelined since April 2023 due to recurring hip issues, his potential return in the coming weeks is eagerly anticipated.
The Reds are hopeful that his return will contribute significantly, providing the team with the flair and creativity necessary to maintain their position in the points table.
As Liverpool return to Premier League action, supporters will be closely following updates for the official confirmation of Szoboszlai’s inclusion in the squad.
The return of the Hungarian, combined with the gradual reintegration of other key players, holds the promise of setting the stage for an exciting and successful second half of the season for the Reds.
