Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson - arguably the Reds' two shining defensive beacons - have managed to stay fit all season, while Trent Alexander-Arnold has only missed a couple of games through injury, and that trio should start for Liverpool in their Premier League match with Brighton & Hove Albion later today.

Matip, who has been out since the beginning of December with a broken collar bone, is back in full training again and could feature at the Amex Stadium.

Matip is making progress in his recovery and, like Lovren, could be back to face Crystal Palace next weekend.

Brighton is unbeaten in its last three games in all competitions and is trying to mount a four-game unbeaten run for the first time since January to March 2018.

"Joel trained yesterday first time with the team, which is really good, but we have to see", Klopp told a news conference on Friday. Adam [Lallana] out, Dejan out, Joe [Gomez] out.

'Yes, otherwise he could play but it's not that serious. Intriguingly, Henderson was pencilled in to to play centre-back alongside Fabinho in the FA Cup tie prior to his injury.

Wilfred Ndidi pulled one back for the Foxes, who ultimately could not make pressure and a man advantage count.

"If Fabinho has to play as a centre-half, we are not sure, he has played it before, but of course we do that on the training pitch", Klopp said.

"Even a side as good as Liverpool when you are disrupted that early in the game, when you are bringing on a 16-year-old centre-half, then it disrupts your game".
