Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool XI will stop working today to get the three points in Brighton but we support them in doing it.
The boss named Nat Phillips in central defense alongside Fabinho and decided to give Joel Matip a break as our only recognized central defender is vulnerable to injury and already played last Sunday and Wednesday …
According to James Pearce of the Echo, Matip’s absence is precautionary and he should be back next time – possibly against Ajax in the Champions League in a few days.
Joel Matip not hurt. #LFC is managing his minutes due to his early season fitness issues and has already played twice this week.
Phillips has been the man of the game on his other Premier League start this season and we hope he can do a similar job!
Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner will hopefully provide some protection for the defenders in our midfield pivot, putting Taki Minamino in his prime position as roving no. 8th.
