Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not thinking about January transfers despite an injury crisis which is worsening by the week.

With Virgil Van Dijk and now Gomez sustaining serious injuries Klopp is again down to one senior centre-back in Joel Matip, who has a chequered injury record himself, while Trent Alexander-Arnold’s continued absence with a calf problem means Klopp will be able to field only one of his first-choice back four against Premier League leaders Leicester on Sunday.

But Klopp is undecided on whether he will look to make new signings in January, revealing how a similar situation at Borussia Dortmund led to him giving youngsters their chance – and proved successful for the club.

“Fabinho was part of that and what we make of that I don’t know yet because I don’t know how he reacts but Fabinho was part of normal team training.”

Joe Gomez (knee) and Jordan Henderson (thigh) were the latest to be added to the list over the international break, the former potentially being ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Reds boss is also waiting for the return of midfielders Fabinho, who can also play in the centre and right of defence, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while youngsters Rhys Williams and Neco Williams are also injury doubts this weekend and Mohamed Salah has tested positive for Covid-19 to take the unavailable list potentially into double figures.

The Spain international played just 135 minutes in two appearances before sustaining a knee injury in last month’s Merseyside derby – overshadowed by the anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained by Virgil Van Dijk in the same match – and his return is taking longer than expected.
