    Jurgen Klopp confirms Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita are OUT for Liverpool’s Champions League clash against FC Midtjylland

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with how his side have coped in the absence of Virgil van Dijk.

    The Reds recorded hard-fought victories against Ajax and Sheffield United last week without their talismanic central defender, who requires knee surgery and faces several months out after being clattered by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford during the Merseyside derby on October 17.

    Klopp is without several key members of his squad

    Midfielder Fabinho has been tasked with filling in for the injured Dutchman at the back alongside Joe Gomez and has received praise for adapting to the circumstances quickly.

    Klopp, who confirmed Joel Matip, Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara will not be fit in time for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against FC Midtjylland, believes Liverpool are doing as well as can be expected without ‘the best defender in the world.’

    “Every team in the world would miss Virgil van Dijk,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.

    “He is the best in the world. You play a game, he gets injured, and you play three days later so of course that’s difficult to do because all the boys played together with him and we didn’t have long for them to get used to playing without him.

    Thiagos injury came as a result of this nasty challenge from Richarlison

    “Fabinho, who normally plays as a six, has had to come in and play with Joe (Gomez). For that we did pretty well and that will get better 100 per cent because unfortunately everything in life takes time and defending takes time.

    “They all played with Virgil at some point but not many times did they play together with each other so we do not expect perfection – but not too far away from perfection.

    “Everyone needs time to replace a massive person or player, Virgil is the best defender in the world and so far we’ve done pretty well.”

    Tuesday’s clash at Anfield will be the first time Liverpool and Midtjylland have ever met in a competitive fixture.

    The game sees six-time winners of the competition Liverpool host a club who were only founded in 1999 and are making their first appearance in the Champions League.

    It has been billed as David against Goliath by some of the media in Denmark, but Klopp does not see it that way.

    “We don’t see Midtjylland as a small club, we see Midtjylland as a proper challenger in this group,” he said.

    “No-one is part of the Champions League because they are nice cities, they are in the Champions League because they earned the right the year before.

    “There are no small teams in the Champions League, there are only teams who show how big they are on the pitch, not in the press conferences before games.

    “The 4-0 against Atalanta was not a 4-0 – it was because the score was 4-0 but Midtjylland were in the game. Tomorrow it will be a real challenge and we have to be ready for it, and we will try to be.”
