Klopp on Gomez injury and right-back options

Klopp on Gomez injury and right-back options

The Liverpool manager was unhappy with a number of Burnley challenges during his team's 3-1 win despite accepting that many were not fouls. "Hopefully, he can finish the programme today we did for him".

While Andrew Robertson will return after being rested in midweek, Klopp revealed Dejan Lovren remains sidelined as the centre-back has yet to fully recover from a head knock sustained in training prior to the Merseyside derby.

In his post-match press conference, Klopp explained his frustrations about Burnley's physicality, which resulted in defender Joe Gomez fracturing his leg.

"He [Lovren] will not be available", Klopp said. "He got concussed last week and is still not able to play".

"[Nathaniel] Clyne is out for two weeks too, nothing serious but he is not in training".

"Joe [Gomez] obviously, Oxlade, Rhian Brewster and Dom Solanke [are out]".

The England defender was hurt in the first half of the Premier League fixture following a tackle from Ben Mee and had to be substituted in the 23rd minute at Turf Moor.

"It's a shame for the boy". He was in outstanding shape, he helped us a lot and especially because we could make these changes with Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Joe and that was really important because Trent is still a young boy and we cannot push [him] through 20 games in a row.

Matip and Virgil van Dijk will start together and they will have to deal with an in-form Callum Wilson who will play up top for Bournemouth.

After a tricky start to his Liverpool career, Keita finally showed why the club paid £53million for him and were willing to wait a year for his delayed arrival from RB Leipzig with a commanding performance going forward from midfield, something which has been lacking this season.

"He would probably say he is OK but I think it is responsible we have an eye on that".

"And I thought we were effective in the way we mixed it - not enough - you have to win a game - but we've got to get back to being us, and get back to the consistency of being us".
