Liverpool have endured a torrid time this season with struggles over injury and form, but the players will be looking to put their club struggles behind them when they head to Qatar for the World Cup.

However, not every member of Liverpool’s squad will be heading over to the Middle East, with the likes of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Thiago all sitting this World Cup out.

But exactly which members of Jurgen Klopp’s crop of players will be jetting off to Qatar for this winter’s tournament?

We take a look at the Liverpool players playing at the World Cup 2022.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Alexander-Arnold has been included in Gareth Southgate’s final 26-man squad for the World Cup despite not been included in the squad for the last international break.

The fullback will compete with Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier for a berth in the starting XI after likely first-choice right back Reece James was ruled out of the tournament after failing to recover from a knee injury.

Jordan Henderson

Henderson will be heading to Qatar in what will be his third World Cup after Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.

The Sunderland-born midfielder played an instrumental part in England’s run to the semi-final four years ago, but time seems to have caught up with the 32 year-old and he will likely have to settle for a place in the bench in Qatar, a role he fulfilled at Euro 2020 last year.

Alisson

The goalkeeper is one of the first names on the team sheet for Liverpool – and the same applies to his national side Brazil.

Despite strong competition from Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, Liverpool’s number one will be in possession of the gloves between the sticks for the South Americans.

Fabinho

Fabinho has had a disastrous run of form for the Reds this term which saw the usually imperious midfielder dropped from the starting XI.

However, there was little to no chance that Tite would drop him from the Brazil squad, where he will be tasked with shielding the back four to allow the country’s envious array of attacking talents to flourish further up the pitch.

Ibrahima Konate

The French defender has only played a handful of games for Liverpool this season due to a knee injury, so it is a measure of how highly Didier Deschamps rates the 23 year-old that Konate has been named in the French squad given the number of options available to him in the centre of defence.

Konate only made his debut for the French senior side on June 4 this year, with one further cap arriving since then.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s leader at the back has come under scrutiny this season, but looks to have found his best form in recent weeks in time for the Qatar showdown.

This will be van Dijk’s first appearance at a major tournament, after the Netherlands failed to qualify for the tournament four years ago in Russia and he was ruled out of Euro 2020 with injury.

Darwin Nunez

The star £85 million summer arrival from Benfica will spearhead a talented and dangerous Uruguay side this winter.

The striker – who has netted nine goals so far this season – made his international debut in 2019 and has managed three goals since.
