However, to Klopp’s delight, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho have now recovered from calf and knee issues, respectively.

In the pre-match press conference, Klopp said

Naby has a hamstring injury, he will be out for a while.

Fabinho and Thiago trained completely normal and are in contention, which is good.

Let’s see, injuries in that period of the season are completely normal as long as they are not too harsh.

Yes, he [Keita] made an impact, but it’s nothing to do with Ox. We have clear patterns, if you watch us closely you see a couple of them.

The right side worked really well together with Naby, Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Mo [Salah] and then Oxlade came on.

He is obviously has a completely different skillset, he is a completely different player to Naby. A very good one as well, but different. He set up the second goal so it was not about Oxlade, it’s just about how you do things and then you have to change them.

Against a lot of opponents it would not have been that obvious, but against Brighton it was. They used our weaknesses in that game.

Now we know he [Naby] cannot play, so we prepare in two different ways.

With Naby Keita and James Milner injured, captain Jordan Henderson is likely to keep his place in the starting line-up. While Thiago and Fabinho may as well step in alongside him and Curtis Jones might sit on the bench for this one.
