Jurgen Klopp provides Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren updates amid injury crisis

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. That's really good but we must see and decide day-by-day how he's doing.

"Joel trained yesterday for the first time with the team", Klopp told a news conference on Friday.

Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren are both now sidelined with injury. All are improving, [but] I know they are not available. It's not that serious.

The Reds will also be without Dejan Lovren on the south coast with the Croatian suffering from a hamstring problem, while Joël Matip is still recovering from a broken collarbone.

Virgil van Dijk sat out the game at Wolves but is set to return for Saturday's trip to Brighton.

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

Liverpool's defeat at Manchester City leaves them with just a four point advantage over Pep Guardiola's side but their loss to Wolves leaves them with one less competition on their schedule.

'It is only important how many more points we have than City only at the end of the season.

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.

"It's my preferred rhythm".

"I would love to still be in these competitions but we are not in".

The last 11 teams with the equivalent of 52 or more points at the same stage since 1905-06 went on to lift the title, but the strength of this year's top four means Liverpool on 54 points face an especially daunting task.
