Liverpool have formally requested the EFL for the postponement of Thursday’s semi-final clash vs Arsenal, following a COVID-19 outbreak at the club.

“The Reds have formally requested to the EFL that the fixture is rescheduled after further suspected positive tests were registered among players and staff, allied to other factors impacting selection, including illness and injury.

 

“In response, the club halted preparations at the AXA Training Centre, meaning Tuesday’s first-team training session was cancelled.

 

“Among the considerations which led to today’s application to the EFL is the need for travelling supporters to be given as much notice as possible of any potential postponement.” read the official statement.

 

Liverpool trio Alisson, Matip and Firmino, along with manager Jurgen Klopp recently missed their trip to London to take on Chelsea after registering suspected positive COVID-19 tests.
