Klopp, jaded by the casualties: "I have no idea what we will do in January"

Injuries have left Liverpool down to the bare bones. Without Van Dijk, Joe Gomez or Fabinho, the Reds are pulling their weight and waiting for the winter market, but Jürgen Klopp does not see this as clear. Questioned in the press room, he said he had "no idea" about the club's options in January.

Jürgen Klopp will be checking his jacket pockets for defenders. The losses of his two centre-backs, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, joined that of a Fabinho who he had began to use as an alternative.

There is talk of Liverpool's options in January. Ozan Kabak (Schalke 04) was the first name to come to the fore, as was Sokratis, but it seems that Klopp is not sure that the 'reds' can sign in the next market.

"We will see. I don't know what we can do in January, to be honest. I have no idea. We can look for solutions in the transfer market, that is clear, but at the moment this is the situation we have," he said at his last press conference before Leicester.

For the moment, he is content with the likes of Phillips and Rhys Williams: "We have young talent here, 18, 19 or 23, and then we have more experienced players. Everyone will get their chance. We also have midfielders, not at the moment, but hopefully in a couple of weeks we will have players back who can play defensive roles as well. That's the solution.

However, the idea of signing a central defender in January, even though Van Dijk is out for almost the whole season, is not so sure: "About what we can do in January, I have no idea. Now we are well, as always we will use the boys that we have with us".
