With just two days to go now until the Champions League final, Liverpool are making their way to Kiev today. They have one more pre-match training session, at Olimpiyskiy Stadium, on Friday. Jürgen Klopp will speak to the press one more time. Then, the final.
And with the players and staff on their way to Ukraine today, the club confirmed Klopp’s 24-man travelling squad, with the only real surprises being which youth and reserve players the Liverpool manager has brought along to round out Saturday’s matchday squad.
As expected, Adam Lallana and Emre Can both make the squad despite their recent injury issues, though the expectation is that neither will start—and Can’s more recent return will mean even a place on the bench isn’t certain for the soon-to-depart midfielder.
U23 regulars Danny Ward and Ben Woodburn are also making the trip as part of Klopp’s travelling squad, along with U18 stars Curtis Jones, Nat Phillips, and Rafa Camacho, who join the 19 fit senior first team players Klopp will have at his disposal in Kiev.
Liverpool’s travelling squad: Karius, Clyne, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Firmino, Salah, Henderson, Klavan, Moreno, Mane, Lallana, Mignolet, Can, Robertson, Ings, Solanke, Phillips, Jones, Ward, Woodburn, Camacho, Alexander-Arnold
