Liverpool's injury problems are made worse by the absence of defenders Alexander-Arnold and Matip for at least two weeks.
The defenders sustained injuries during their game against Arsenal, and as a result, they will miss the matches against Rangers and Man City.
Klopp is really troubled by these fitness issues.GOAL.com reveals that both players will miss crucial Champions League and Premier League matches against Rangers and Manchester City after being forced off during the Reds' most recent Premier League match at Arsenal due to injuries.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Matip, whose calf injury forced him to be replaced by Ibrahima Konate in a 3-2 loss at Emirates Stadium, is expected to miss up to three weeks of action, while Alexander-Arnold will miss the remainder of the season due to an ankle injury he sustained while tackling Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli in north London.
Additionally, Konate is scheduled to make his season debut against Rangers on Wednesday at Ibrox, with Joe Gomez perhaps filling in at right-back. Andy Robertson and Curtis Jones are anticipated to join the Reds' ranks for a trip to Glasgow, which is excellent news for Jurgen Klopp, who has already lost Luis Diaz until December.
Liverpool has failed to win any of their first four away games in a Premier League season (D2 L2), the first time that has happened since Roy Hodgson's team failed to win any of their first four away games in 2010–11.
WHAT WILL LIVERPOOL DO NEXT? The Reds will return to their home ground on Sunday when they meet reigning Premier League champions City after visiting Scotland.
