Jurgen Klopp on options at right-back while Joe Gomez is out

" Liverpool can confirm Joe Gomez sustained a fracture to the lower left leg during the 3-1 win at Burnley on Wednesday night. Hopefully, he can finish the programme today we did for him".

Joel Matip has warned Liverpool to be wary of challenges from title rivals as they aim to keep their unbeaten record going in the Premier League.

"I would say it is a bit of luck because it could have been worse".

"I don't think (Manchester City) feel pressure!" The England worldwide has been spotted wearing a protective boot.

Speaking at Melwood on Friday, Klopp says he has an idea up his sleeve at right-back, in order to manage Alexander-Arnold's workload: "I have a plan".

Lallana could get the nod against Bournemouth as Klopp rotates some of his important players out of the starting XI.

Nathaniel Clyne, the other recognised right-back in the squad, is now sidelined, so the likes of Rafa Camacho, James Milner and Fabinho could be required to slot in, with all three surely in Klopp's thought process. "He was in outstanding shape, helped us a lot because we can make the changes with Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Joe", the former Borussia Dortmund boss said. We have options and will see what we will do.

Klopp has other injury concerns with Sadio Mane's cut foot meaning he is ruled out of the trip to the south coast while fellow forward Dominic Solanke is not expected to return to training until after the Bournemouth game.

Gomez was clattered into the advertising hoardings at Turf Moor after Mee's tackle and Klopp criticised referee Stuart Attwell for being too lenient with Burnley's players.

"It's amusing, he didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating", Dyche said a news conference on Thursday. I'm not sure if he spoke about the challenge of [Phil] Bardsley on Alberto Moreno. It was a normal situation which can happen - sometimes a striker expects a tackle and tries to avoid it by jumping.
