Jurgen Klopp was quick to dismiss talk of a "defensive crisis" in the build-up to Sunday’s north west derby.
Liverpool had progressed to the knockout phase of the Champions League with a hard-fought win over Napoli, but the victory came at a cost, as Joel Matip (fractured collarbone) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (ankle) joined Joe Gomez (lower leg fracture) in the treatment room. Klopp admitted he needed to "find [defensive] solutions" ahead of game week 17, which of course, was not perfect when facing rivals Manchester United. James Milner was a strong contender for the right-back spot despite limping off five days earlier at Anfield. Initially, Klopp played down concerns of a serious injury: "Millie had cramps – I hope it was only cramp. That was it, I don’t know anything else." However, he was ruled out of the late kick-off due to a "little bit" of a muscle issue. That meant forgotten man Nathaniel Clyne came in for only his third Premier League start of 2018 having recently returned to full training. Dec 17 - 4:37 PM
