Liverpool suffer huge pre-Brighton injury blow

Liverpool suffer huge pre-Brighton injury blow

Croatian centre back Dejan Lovren picked up a muscle injury early in Monday's FA Cup third round defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers to add to the absence of two other central defenders Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

However, Lovren looks set to miss Liverpool's matches with Brighton and Crystal Palace after sustaining a hamstring injury versus Wolves.

After starting 2019 with back to back defeats, Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways and maintain their Premier League title challenge with a morale-boosting win over Brighton on Saturday evening.

"But if you're talking about an influence on our game and the history they have, then of course they've done it for a longer time and he hasn't".

"It seems harder as we've gone each season to get those results".

He said: I saw them as two separate (Man City and Wolves).

He told The Argus: "Sometimes you gauge how good the top are by how numerous bottom ten are going to get results against the top six teams".

'Joel trained yesterday for the first time with the team.

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

'If you are a holding 6 or a centre-half with the ball it is easier'.

Asked whether that would give Liverpool an advantage over their rivals, Klopp said that depended on how well they made use of the extra preparation time. "He is a fantastic person, he is physically strong and he has all the technical things you need".

"It's my preferred rhythm. But we try not to make it more complicated than it is", Klopp added.

"So the owners want the Premier League and Champions League clearly".
