UCL: Matip, Keita, Alcantara to miss Liverpool vs Midtjylland

Share

Liverpool cruised home in the Champions League last night with a comfortable 2-0 win over FC Midtjylland at Anfield.

"If it would be only one game and it was the last of the season I think he [Matip] could be fit, but then we have a game three days later", said Klopp. They pressed like insane, they made a really hectic game of it and we couldn't calm it down in the decisive moments.

Trent Alexander-Arnold combined well with Xherdan Shaqiri before the right-back set up former Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Jota to tap home. "Muscle injuries are like this, you get the result tomorrow morning probably, we have to wait for that".

In the 60th minute, Egypt global Mohamed Salah was subbed in for Divock Origi who didn't have a real impact on the course of the game.

"There is no doubt that we are well satisfied with the performance that was presented today. We needed fresh legs to finish the game off". They had really big chances and Ali (Alisson Becker) was there.

Shelton had just called it quits with Miranda Lambert , and Stefani had just split from Gavin Rossdale . "I love you. A representative for Shelton confirmed the couple recently got engaged while in Oklahoma, where Shelton lives.

"It is this juggle all the time between the fit players - how much can they play still - and when can we use the others again".

With others doubtful or ruled out, 19-year-old centre-back Rhys Williams could make his Premier League debut in the match at Anfield. "It's a bit like in a marriage, there are good and bad times", he told BT Sport. 100% we have to stick together and fight harder and that's what the boys did tonight.

"He felt his hamstring, and that's not good", said Klopp after the full-time whistle.

He added: "We're doing really well but it's a shock for a team because now we have to sort that injury".

Liverpool are at the top of Group D at the moment with six points from two matches, while Atalanta are second with four points and Midtjylland are yet to open their account.
