“Trent is out with a hamstring. He cannot be part of England as well – no good news, we will see how long that takes,” Klopp told reporters during his pre-match press conference according to Liverpool website.
“We always did it. We have Millie when he is then not ill anymore, we have obviously Joe and, theoretically, we can change system as well, so we have these kinds of things.”
Klopp on the possible replacement of Trent. “We have a couple of options. You are right, [he’s] very influential. But if you have a look in the past when Millie had to step in, he did incredibly well. Incredibly well.”
