Is anyone left in defence? Klopp has some, but it will not work out that way

Williams played in the 6th division last season and is now in the Champions League

 

Generally, the Brazilian is a disruptive midfielder and stood in the centre of defence against Midtjylland only because Klopp simply had no other choice. Virgil Van Dijk will not be able to play for months, Joel Matip is also injured, and therefore the German coach of Merseyside is forced to rearrange the defence line, to put it mildly. However, what is happening now in the centre of Liverpool defence is no longer called a reshuffle.

With Midtjylland, Jürgen let 19-year-old Rhys Williams on the pitch, who was sacked in the first round of last season at a sixth-tier club with the perfect name Kidderminster. And now, this guy has made his second appearance in the Champions League. And obviously, it will hold more.

The severity of Fabinho’s injury should be known soon. “His injury is the last thing we need now.” He told me I could continue playing. But I can’t run fast. I can’t sprint,” Klopp said.

 

Who can play in defence?

 

Who is left for the Jürgen defence centre except for Gomez, who must hold all meetings in the busy calendar? In addition to Gomez and Williams, Klopp has only 18-year-old, very inexperienced Sepp van den Berg and former Stuttgart resident Nathaniel Phillips. The latter is 23 years old and has only played in 1 official match for Merseyside (on January 5, in the Association Cup with Everton). But the problem is that Liverpool have neither Philips nor Van den Berg included in their Champions League squad.

Well, Liverpool fans have no worries about Jordan Henderson. The latter was replaced by Wijnaldum at the break, but not because of an injury, but because it was Klopp’s idea. ‘They each had to play 45 minutes’ said the German coach.

In short, for Liverpool, the victory over Midtjylland was ultimately not as simple a story as it might seem at first glance.
