Liverpool fans have been introduced to a host of new heroes over a dizzying few days as the Jurgen Klopp era twists and turns towards its conclusion.

Academy products such as Conor Bradley, James McConnell and Bobby Clark all played their part as the depleted Reds beat Chelsea 1-0 in extra time last weekend to lift the Carabao Cup.

Then, in midweek, Lewis Koumas opened the scoring and Jayden Danns came off the bench for a game-sealing brace as Southampton were beaten 3-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Obviously, such a situation is not sustainable in the white heat of a Premier League title race, especially against a Nottingham Forest side scrapping for their lives at the wrong end of the table.

So what’s the fitness latest on some of Liverpool’s main men such as Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szoboszlai?
