Revealed: The top games 3 key Liverpool players will miss for AFCON tournament

The Africa Cup of Nations will run from January 9 to February 6, with 40 Premier League players potentially being called up for duty for the tournament in Cameroon.

Those called up to AFCON could miss at least one Premier League round (weekend of January 15/16), the FA Cup third round (weekend of January 8) and the Carabao Cup semi-finals (w/c January 3 and January 10) in the best-case scenario.

However, depending on when clubs release their players, and how fit they are on return, in the worst case, players could miss four Premier League rounds, both Carabao Cup semi-finals and both the FA Cup third and fourth rounds.
Below are the Liverpool players who could miss top games.

Players potentially selected: Mohamed Salah (Egypt), Sadio Mane (Senegal), Naby Keita (Guinea)

PL games impacted: Jan 2: Chelsea (A); Jan 15: Brentford (H); Jan 23: Crystal Palace (A); Feb 9: Leicester (H)
