While the prodigious 18-year-old's absence is a wretched blow, Liverpool's brilliant victory at Leeds showcased that Klopp has another two undroppables in midfield who should help ensure whoever comes into the team in Elliott's place is primed to succeed.

Liverpool now boast nine wins from 10 games when the pair have started next to one another in midfield, with the only match they failed to win coming in the 2-2 draw against Everton at Goodison Park last year.

With Fabinho the man tasked to break up play and provide security for the Liverpool back-line, Thiago is the tempo-setter on the ball.

Those are their two core strengths, and the pair go well together in the engine room for this Liverpool team.

With the Brazilian and Spaniard as lynchpins of the midfield, Liverpool will win a big percentage of their league matches.

Of course, it is another challenge altogether for Liverpool that they must keep Fabinho and Thiago - prone to injuries in recent seasons - fit to play 30-plus Premier League matches alongside one another.

Of course there are holes in the Liverpool squad and Elliott's injury means when the Africa Cup of Nations rolls around, Klopp has weaker options to pick from in the front three in particular.
