Dejan Lovren misses Liverpool's trip to Brighton but Joel Matip could return

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is seen before the Premier League match against Newcastle United at Anfield in Liverpool

"If I'm looking at the defeats they've had, one of them is away at Man City and they are their hardest game of the season, and the other away in a Cup tie where they made numerous changes".

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that his side will not be active in the January transfer window despite facing a defensive injury crisis.

Joe Gomez still remains sidelined as he recovers from a fractured lower left leg.

Matip, who has been out since the beginning of December with a broken collar bone, is back in full training again and could feature at the Amex Stadium.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is a major doubt for Saturday's trip to Brighton.

Klopp has insisted his team has the quality to deal with these kind of problems.

"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".

"We are fine. A season is always like this".

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". At the moment Huddersfield hold the baton of doom, but if Liverpool fail to win today - on the back of a despicable run of two straight defeats in all competitions - they will be the ones under scrutiny.

"Let's play football. Nothing else".

"There's no advantage. You can do a lot of wrong things when you have a week to train".

Klopp is not overly concerned about playing Fabinho as a makeshift central defender alongside Van Dijk.

"If Fabinho has to play as a CB, we work on that on the training pitch". We have to make the best of the time we have now and get as many points as possible.

Naby Keita is expected to start as he looks to finally make his mark, Georginio Wijnaldum is also set to return.
