Klopp provides news on Matip and Joe Gomez

We didn't see both Joel Matip and Joe Gomez being ruled out prior to the match, so having Fabinho stepping in in such a big game was a concern.

As it turned out, he put in a proper masterclass, and we kept a clean sheet on the way to a comfortable 2-nil win over Chelsea.

But Jurgen Klopp won't want to have his most effective spoiler playing in defence more than he has to, so he'll be looking for both centre backs to return as soon as possible.

He did provide an update pre-match though, as reported via "Not a lot, but enough.

"So, Joe is not a real concern – it’s probably only today. Same with Billy [Koumetio].

"With Joel, we have to see – it could take a few days longer. [It’s] muscle. After injuries that’s how it is. He looked perfect in the pre-season since he trained. But now he got a little problem and we have to react, so that’s how it is. That’s why we start how we start."
