Liverpool FC — Klopp’s fitness update on Alisson, Jones, Konate, Tsimikas and more

Liverpool will also be without Diogo Jota and Caoimhin Kelleher for the trip to London as the duo continue to undergo rehabilitation programs on injuries sustained during the summer.

Klopp was asked by reporters whether the current fitness situation with the Reds squad could see the club enter the transfer market.

The boss replied:[Kelleher] is still a few weeks away.

“We have too many injuries, that’s true, but at the moment nothing has changed. There were a lot of unlucky situations; started with Caoimhin, started with Diogo pretty much. One was injured, the other one got a re-injury, it was not 100 percent clear.

“There’s no criticism, because you made a story of everything that I say but it is like this – he’s with the national team, both of them were with their national teams. There is a diagnosis, we get the diagnosis, we trust the diagnosis, that’s completely normal, but you are not in the full process all the time. The national team takes over in moments, we try to step in as early as possible.

“Diogo, it was obviously slightly too early, or the injury was different in the first place. They are already fine and in a few weeks they will be back.”

Klopp added: “These kind of things are not cool, but we cannot sort a problem we have for four weeks with a transfer for a full year, that makes, at the moment at least, no sense for us. But the transfer window is still open and we will see. But the plans don’t go in that direction.”
