From wiki: Hoever completed his move to Liverpool in August 2018 from Ajax but had to wait until September 2018 for international clearance.
To qualify the b list: List B includes players born on or after January 1, 1998 who have been eligible to play for the club for any uninterrupted period of two years since their 15th birthday.
So, Hoever is not qualified for the b list.
Just looked up the A list rules, teams have to have 8 players from their own federation, including four from their own club (for at least two years). Since there are only 7 on the A list who meet that definition they only get to have 24 on the A list. Hoever still could have been selected for this but was passed over for Sepp Van den Berg.
Paul Gorst mentioned that there is more right-sided cover available than on the left. Hoever still could play in the League Cup match later this month and there are EFL Trophy games as well. Agree it's not a huge deal, but he definitely could have been named in the squad.
Agree with FK10 about Herbie Kane. Supposedly he might be getting an opportunity in the League Cup as well. We'll see.
