Liverpool is concerned that Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane will miss out on games for them. Naby Keita will also miss out as he has to represent Guinea in the AFCON.

FIFA rules state “Players must be released and start travel to their representative team no later than Monday morning the week preceding the week when the relevant final competition starts” The AFCON will start from January 9 to February 6.  According to The Athletic, the clubs are holding talks with national teams. The respective authorities can allow the players to participate from January 10th.

Liverpool faces Chelsea on 2nd January as they urgently need Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool to suffer because of lack of attacking options?

Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane will miss out if the authorities don’t give permission. The deadly trio will be missing against Chelsea as the Blues look to solidify their lead. The future of Liverpool’s attack is an unanswerable question.

Liverpool does have gifted youngsters but none of them is at the desirable level. Harvey Elliott is a Liverpool academy graduate. He is a winger as well as a midfielder. The England professional is a viable option.

Liam Miller is also a backup option in case the Reds do not have any other option. He was sent on a loan following which he returned to U-23 and was disappointed. The disappointment arises because of not getting promoted to the first team.

Despite not getting promoted, he is the only player to start all 14 games in Premier League 2. He has provided 5 goals and 3 assists. Whether these youngsters will be able to replace the current stars is a pondering question.
