Liverpool's Joel Matip, Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara won't be fit in time for this week's Champions League clash with Midtjylland, Reds coach Jurgen Klopp said on Monday.

Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah, scored in the second match day of the UEFA Champions League as the Reds beat FC Midtjylland 2-0. I don't know, he felt his hamstring so that's not good.

Liverpool got their goal against a stubborn Midtjylland just after the interval thanks to a slick passing move between Trent Alexander-Arnold and Xherdan Shaqiri, with Jota finishing well, and Klopp said he wanted to the team playing with that kind of confidence throughout.

"They are really good, it's a real challenge". It looks like we will need a few more days.

Some venues, such as Prahran steakhouse Angus & Bon, were even that eager to get back trading they reopened at midnight . Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews addresses the media during a press conference in Melbourne yesterday.

With that in mind, Klopp is preparing to take a chance on one of the club's youngsters with Rhys Williams now at the top of the pecking order having helped Liverpool to two clean sheets in the Champions League from the bench.

At least the hosts were able to welcome back first-choice goalkeeper Alisson, who has made an earlier-than-expected recovery and started in the Premier League win over Sheffield United last weekend.

With Virgil van Dijk out long term, Fabinho has been filling in at centre-back but Liverpool's depth in defence will now be severely tested with the former Monaco man also set to miss time. "We don't need to change the way we play but we can not deny we will miss Virgil, he's one of the best in the world", he said.

"100 per cent we have to stick together and fight harder and that's what the boys did tonight. He played pretty much all the games since he's been here in the past three years", he added.
