LIVERPOOL V MANCHESTER UNITED: TEAM NEWS.
Jürgen Klopp has decisions to make in defence for Liverpool’s Premier League meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.
The Reds boss will be forced into atleast one change - Joel Matip is ruled after suffering a fractured collarbone in the closing moments of Tuesday’s Champions League win over Napoli.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is a doubt for the game, too, having sustained a knock in midweek, but will be assessed before kick-off against Jose Mourinho’s men. “We have to see. For him, it is day by day how we judge it,” Klopp said of the No.66 at his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon. “It’s not cool but as long as we still have enough players, it is our job to always find a solution for it - and we will have a solution for the weekend, but if of course it is not perfect.” Joe Gomez is also sidelined, of course, but Klopp is hopefully of being able to call upon right-back Nathaniel Clyne this weekend if necessary.” “Clyney was unfortunately injured in the last two or three weeks,” said the boss. “It was nothing serious but serious enough that he couldn’t be a part of training. Luckily, for four days he is in full training again - so that’s good. Is he ready for 90 minutes? I don’t know. Is he ready? Yes. 🔴
