The Reds' first game in the tournament is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 18, less than 24 hours after their Carabao Cup clash with Aston Villa at Anfield.

Liverpool have confirmed their 23-man squad for the forthcoming FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar later this month.

As such, Klopp previously stated he would have to name two separate squads for the matches.

Liverpool have a packed December schedule due to their involvement in the Club World Cup but Virgil van Dijk is determined to win more silverware.

Chances are, Williams, Jones, Elliott and Brewster won't play in Qatar, but it is a nice touch from Klopp.
