Liverpool Trio Facing FA Cup Suspension Risk Ahead of Potential Clash with Man United

As Liverpool gears up for a crucial FA Cup quarter-final clash against Manchester United, attention turns to three players walking a suspension tightrope, risking missing the semi-final should the Reds progress.

Harvey Elliott, Ryan Gravenberch, and Bobby Clark are the players carrying bookings into the quarter-final fixture, with just one more yellow card standing between them and suspension from the following FA Cup match.

In the FA Cup, accumulation of two yellow cards leads to an automatic suspension for the subsequent game in the competition, with disciplinary slates only cleared after this stage.

While Clark received the all-clear from Jurgen Klopp following a knock to his ankle, neither he nor Elliott or Gravenberch are anticipated to start in Sunday’s encounter. However, they remain viable options off the bench for Klopp, with the Dutchman poised to make his return.

The trio’s yellow cards were accumulated during the third-round triumph over Arsenal, further heightening caution as Liverpool heads into the high-stakes quarter-final.

The timing of potential suspensions adds an extra layer of complexity, with Liverpool set for a packed fixture schedule. Following their clash with Manchester United, the Reds face a swift return to Old Trafford in the Premier League before diving into Europa League action against Atalanta, marking the beginning of a demanding run of five games in just 13 days—a period that could encompass the FA Cup semi-final.
