Liverpool duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Diogo Jota set to miss out on Austria training camp

Liverpool duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Diogo Jota are set to miss the Austria training camp after being left out of the 31-man squad, via Metro.

The two Liverpool stalwarts missed out on the pre-season trip to Germany as the Merseysiders faced RB Leipzig. The Reds have also planned a week-long stay in Austria as they face RB Salzburg next.

Jota and Ox miss the trip due to injury. The Portuguese international is suffering from a recurring hamstring injury while the English midfielder seems to have picked up a knock in the friendly against Crystal Palace.

After facing RB Salzburg, the team has a tougher test against Manchester City to contend with in the FA Community Shield. The first game of the Premier League season takes place on 6 August as we visit Craven Cottage to face off against newly promoted Fulham.

Jota’s injury is a big disappointment. Sadio Mane has left the club and the Reds have bought Darwin Nuez from Benfica. Rival fans have been on the Uruguayan’s back for his initial performances in a Red shirt.

The Portuguese forward has been an important part of the team under Jurgen Klopp. Nunez still needs time to settle in despite his heroics against Leipzig. It’s essential to have someone like Jota in the side till that happens.

Oxlade-Chamberlain once again experiences a setback thanks to injury. The English midfielder’s time at Anfield has been marred by constant injuries. What could have been.

As Liverpool were challenging for all four titles last season, it was difficult to move ahead in the pecking order as Klopp picked a set side to compete in all four competitions.

Missing out on pre-season does no one any favours. The players miss out on valuable game time to get back into shape and create a connection with the new signings. It is the best solution not to rush them back into action unless they are 100 per cent fit.
