Jurgen Klopp met with the press on Friday ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with AFC Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday.
The Reds boss has talked about Alisson, Jordan Henderson, Chelsea defeat and more.
Klopp has provided injury update:
“Henderson has a chance for Atletico but not Bournemouth. Shaq is not involved. Alisson is out. He had a little incident before Chelsea then we thought we won’t take any risks. He is out and we will see, next week for sure.
“Alisson has suffered a muscle problem in the hip. You could all work still but not for a pro goalkeeper.”
Allison will also miss Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid:
“I don’t want to say no [for Merseyside derby] but I am not sure. We have to judge the situation next week. After int’l break he will be 100% but we will see,” said Klopp
When asked about Chelsea defeat the Reds boss replied:
“After Watford, I thought now we have to talk in more detailed way and we did. I saw a reaction from players [at Chelsea]. So we just carry on. I cannot make a meeting where it is the same. It doesn’t work. The opponents were strong, us not so much.
“We had a big meeting after Watford and Chelsea. I said after the game I liked a lot of the game. We conceded two goals, two situations we didn’t like. It was an intense game otherwise, completely fine. Difficult to say when you’ve lost but it is truth.”
Klopp also talked about Liverpool’s current situation:
“You can’t hope for momentum, we work for it. It’s a comfortable sace between games, we will try everything for that [Atletico] game. We have to work for it all. It would be great if we could use [a win] tomorrow.”
When asked about upcoming clash with Bournemouth, Klopp relied:
“We face an opponent who are fighting for the league. Their frontline is back now and they are in a tough moment. We respect that, we wish them all the best but not tomorrow. It’s not about records it’s about making it possible to win tomorrow.”
