Virgil van Dijk
The Dutch center-back will be on the sidelines for the foreseeable future with an ACL injury sustained in the Merseyside derby following a terribly high tackle by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Refusing to set a timescale for the defender’s return to the first team, Klopp said recently: “Virgil has been here, he’s fine. But about when the surgery is going to happen and stuff like that, I don’t think it makes sense that we pretty much have a schedule every day.
“But it will be fine and it will happen in due course. That’s it – he’s as good as possible. ”
The Cameroonian suffered a muscle injury in the 2-2 draw with Everton earlier this month, although his condition is not as bad as initially feared.
However, it won’t be available for tonight’s game.
Liverpool’s £ 27million summer deal with Bayern Munich sustained a knee injury when the Reds clashed with the Toffees and has since missed the team’s most recent wins against Ajax and Sheffield United.
However, Thiago’s knock isn’t as bad as initially feared, though he’s still not ready to return to the starting XI.
The Guinean international has not played for the Reds as he has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 on international service.
Keita has since tested negative for the virus but missed Liverpool’s last two games. The former RB Leipzig midfielder won’t play a role tonight but will fight for West Ham’s visit on Saturday.
The former Arsenal midfielder is still recovering from the knee injury he sustained in pre-season training, although a date for his return to the first team is still in the air.
“Oxlade is obviously in long-term rehab, but looks good and is usually in a good mood,” said Klopp earlier this month about the England international.
Possible start of Liverpool against FC Midtjylland: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Gomez, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Jota
