Predicted line up, Klopp's solution to injury problems

Predicted line up, Klopp's solution to injury problems

Liverpool will visit Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday at Amex Stadium in their Premier League Round 22 game.

The disappointment was followed up with defeat in the FA Cup away at Wolves on Monday night, now the Reds will be keen to ensure they get back to winning ways.

After a fairly injury-free start to the season, Klopp has had to tinker with his defensive line-up in recent weeks with Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren all suffering injuries to leave the Reds threadbare at the back.

"They are not out for long".

"We are fine. A season is always like this".

DeMarcus Cousins will make his Warriors debut January 18
Starter Damian Jones was sidelined due to a torn pectoral and Kevon Looney has had to make up much of the deficit. While the Warriors will welcome Cousins with open arms, his repaired Achilles will still be the main concern.

Sevilla coach Machin says landing Morata would be 'blessing' earlier reported that Chelsea star Alvaro Morata could be on his way to Barcelona when the January transfer window opens. Many teams want him, because he's worth it.

Derby claim training ground 'spy' stopped by police was Leeds employee
I have a different point of view, but the important thing is what he and Derby think. I am responsible for it because I didn't ask for Leeds United permission to do it.

With all three centre-backs out, Fabinho will now have to step into the centre-half role in a partnership with Van Dijk.

Klopp's side still hold a strong, four-point lead at the top of the table, and are now entering a less intense run of games that includes meetings with Brighton (13th), Crystal Palace (14th), Leicester (seventh), West Ham (10th) and Bournemouth (12th). Using the quality and the potential of the boys in the best way we can, train on all-important things like different systems.

"So the owners want the Premier League and Champions League clearly". "But we try not to make it more complicated than it is", Klopp added.

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a number of changes from defeat at Molineux, with the usual attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane set to return.

Also in that game, Dejan Lovren became the latest Liverpool centre-back to pick up an injury when he came off after five minutes clutching his left hamstring.
