    Lovren was withdrawn with 40 minutes on the clock on the south coast with a suspected injury, which left fans hoping for the best.
    But after the game, Klopp was not overly concerned as he revealed “it looks like a little cramp.”
    “It doesn’t look too serious, it looks like a little cramp,” he told reporters.

    “[He] felt something and told us. That’s the status quo, you have these kinds of things in these moments of the season.
    “It similar to what Gini and Lallana had, two days [to recover]. So we now have two days before he can go again.”
    The initial suggestions come as a major boost for the Reds who will remain without Matip for the rest of December as he continues his recovery, where his introduction back into the team will take another two weeks at the earliest.
    “Everything in our life is all under pressure. All the little things have to heal as quickly as possible, but here it is taking the normal amount of time,” Klopp told the club’s website.
    “It was not like after four weeks or so that it was already as we wished, so we have to wait another two weeks I would think and then we will see.
    “But then he will have been out for six weeks or so, if it is perfect, fine, but he might need to rebuild his physical things as well, which is not too cool, but it is nothing serious.”

    ==========

    So looks like Matip is out until January, Lovren hopefully nothing too serious.

    I can't wait for Neco Williams or Hoever to get enough seasoning to be deemed ready for the first team – we need another attacking RB to take the load off Trent from time to time. And Lovren shouldn't play back-to-back mid-week and weekend games; his body is not made of the same stuff as Van Dijk's, so Gomez should be involved more often in his natural CB position.

    Gomez at CB which I suggested for the derby anyway as Lovren can cope with lots of games in quick succession as proven yet again.

    I think, in hindsight, that was an error. Now we risk his being on the sidelines.

    I hope it turns out as a blessing in disguise.
    I have a feeling that the VVD-Gomez partnership, if given a long run, would concede less goals and we'd see a return to clean-sheets.

    It's got more potential that's for sure, and we've got a healthy lead at the table so it's a good time to give them 2 another run together.

    If Gomez can find that confidence that he had back, can be a very formidable partnership. Gomez is quick, faster than the other two defenders. So if he can stop slipping and ball watching, this would be our best centre halves partnership. I am more concern over Fabinho, not sure when will he return.

    If he was a horse we`d have shot him months ago.

    Anyone have a gun and the appropriate paperwork for abattoir work?


    Best CB in the world is not made of glass :(

    That's why he's only the second best defender in the world.

    This one is on Klopp, I'm afraid. He is just incapable of playing too many games, and he came off with a twinge on Saturday. It was clear he needed to be rested.

    So now we’re down to 2 fit CBs and no Fabinho to fill in... Who is our 3rd-choice CB now - Hendo? Gini?

    Careful you get lambasted for thinking like that.

    Was collecting the son from training when Lovren was taken off, listening to the radio I got the impression Klopp wasn’t happy with Lovren. Maybe Lovren hadn’t let on the true extent of the injury on Saturday. It was reported as cramp but how many players ever get cramp in the first half?

    Gini played once as a CB that i can remember but the situation just sucks altogether. Only 2 fit CBs for such a busy period is just terrible.

    Maybe some games, like cups, but in the EPL if it comes down to it, I'm sure Klopp would task one of the senior players with covering this position. So it's probably Hendo or Gini, which also limits our options in midfield. Gomez better stay fit.

    Oh totally. Hope it doesnt come to that. But Wijnaldum over any of the youth players if it does.

    I really thought he'd start Gomez in this one. Cold night and Lovren having a niggle in the last game.

    This time last year we had a busy period and only 2 fit CBs ... didn't fare too badly then did we?
