Champions League

Clean bill of health for Liverpool, says Klopp

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that there are no new injury concerns for his side ahead of the Champions League clash with Genk on Tuesday.

The Reds have won two and lost one of their three Champions League matches this term as they look to defend their title.

And Joel Matip, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne will be the only three players missing for Liverpool despite Mohamed Salah limping out of their 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

"I think (it's) pretty much as we looked before the last game [against] Aston Villa, nothing really changed," Klopp told reporters.

"Nobody told me anything. Yesterday in training everybody could do what he had to do, but in this period of the year, we know things can happen overnight (but) no, nothing [new] that I know. Everything should be fine.

"The problem is not now the game on Sunday (against Manchester City) because between Tuesday and Sunday is a lot of time, but of course we have to think a little bit about Saturday to Tuesday - that's the shorter break between the games, so we have to think.

"But it's all about having the best formation for this game, nothing else. It was always like this and will always be like this. How I said, we respect them a lot and we knew how difficult it was there. Yes, we scored the goals, but it was not the best performances of the last 20 years of us and one of the reasons (for that) was Genk, to be honest.

"So, we will hopefully have a couple of fresh legs in. It's clear that we want that, but it's not like we will do so many changes that you cannot recognise our team anymore and think 'who is that?'.

"No, this period was absolutely OK because we made changes against Arsenal, we had to, then we played Aston Villa, now we have to look a little bit at what we do tomorrow night. But then we have enough time to prepare for City."
