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

The early return of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is a relief to Liverpool who are battling an injury crisis

"We don't see (Midtjylland) as a small team". I don't know, he felt his hamstring so that's not good.

"They are really good, it's a real challenge". They are a bit more direct in their buildup.

Liverpool trio Joel Matip, Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara will not be fit in time to face Frank Onyeka's Midtjylland in Tuesday's Champions League matchday two clash at Anfield.

The Brazilian, who was filling in at centre back alongside Joe Gomez following Virgil van Dijk's season-ending ACL injury, pulled up after 27 minutes when running back towards his own goal.

Jürgen Klopp delivers his manager's notes, and we look back at his very first European game as Liverpool boss five years ago.


"Every team in the world would miss Virgil van Dijk, he's the best centre-half in the world. 100% we have to stick together and fight harder and that's what the boys did tonight", he said. They are not used to each other, as other pairings. For that we did pretty well and that will get better because unfortunately everything in life takes time and defending takes time.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds got back to winning ways last week with a 1-0 triumph at Ajax before running out 2-1 winners over Sheffield United in the Premier League at the weekend.

It was initially feared he would be out until the middle of next month due to a collarbone injury, but he said he had the club's physiotherapists and fitness staff to thank after returning ahead of schedule.

Klopp told beIN SPORTS: "We have to wait for the scan obviously but you know these times when somebody is going off with a muscle problem, then it's really rare that the doctor calls me the next morning and says: 'False alarm, all fine, he can go again'".
