Liverpool have been hit with a big blow ahead of their Champions League clash against Midtjylland as the trio of Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara and Matip will miss the tie.

The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp struggled for selection in his wards' first game this term in the Champions League which they won against Ajax.

On Saturday, October 24, Liverpool came back from a goal down to beat Sheffield United with these three players not in action for the Premier League champions.

According to the report on GOAL, Jurgen Klopp confirmed in a press conference that there is no chance of these three players playing on Tuesday night, October 27.

“I don’t think so. It’s still what I said last week, we look day by day.
“It looks like we will need a few more days. For tomorrow night, they probably will not be ready.”

While speaking on any fresh injury news, Jurgen Klopp explained:

“Not as far as I know, nobody told me yet. I don’t know exactly. It’s probable that no-one will be added to the squad, but we didn’t lose anybody as well.”

Since joining Liverpool from Bayern Munich, Thiago Alcantara has so far played only two games for the Anfield landlords.
