The confirmed squad lists are out and the big news for Liverpool is no room for Lazar Markovic.

Liverpool have submitted their finalised Premier League squad for upcoming season and there isn’t much by way of surprising news, with the club registering 17 foreign-trained and six homegrown players—and no room for Lazar Markovic.

Outside of Markovic, though, everyone is included in the club’s 23-man squad, two short of the maximum that could only be achieved by adding two more homegrown players, as each club can register up to 17 foreign and up to eight homegrown.

Liverpool’s 2017-18 Premier League squad list, in full (*denotes homegrown):

Alisson Becker
Nathaniel Clyne*
Fabinho
Roberto Firmino
Jordan Henderson*
Loris Karius
Naby Keita
Adam Lallana*
Dejan Lovren
Sadio Mane
Joel Matip
Simon Mignolet
James Milner*
Alberto Moreno
Divock Origi
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain*
Connor Randall*
Andrew Robertson
Mohamed Salah
Xherdan Shaqiri
Daniel Sturridge*
Virgil van Dijk
Georginio Wijnaldum

While Markovic being left off is noteworthy if perhaps not surprising, it’s a slight surprise to see Connor Randall included—but as a homegrown player with Liverpool under that limit, he’s essentially a free addition.

Jürgen Klopp will also have access to U21 players throughout the season, who do not need to be registered with the main squad. Some of those key U21 players include Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Rhian Brewster, Curtis Jones, and Dominic Solanke.
