As Jurgen Klopp contemplated facing an explosive showdown against Manchester United without a recognised centre half, he offered a muttered response.

“After the United game we will obviously play every three days again, so… for the United game, we will see,” he said of a potential return for the injured Joel Matip.

The implication from the manager was clear: despite the importance of the contest, the run of games which follow will define Liverpool ’s season, and so he must see the bigger picture.

And their manager knows it more than anyone.

Klopp is clear on the cause: that injury crisis in central defence, in the long term absence of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, and Matip’s continuing injury issues.

Klopp more than anyone knows what his side face - 10 defining games in just 34 days, including Premier League matches against ALL of the other sides currently in the top six.

Maybe for a game or two and then he could be injured as well.” So Klopp enters the showdown with United without the centre half he needs, and without the buffer that victories over the likes of Fulham, West Brom, Newcastle and Brighton would have brought.
