Klopp will secretly 'love' Liverpool injury problems, says Lallana


Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool

Adam Lallana has expressed his belief that Jurgen Klopp will secretly "love" Liverpool's injury problems because he enjoys meeting a "challenge face on".

Fabinho, a defensive midfielder by trade,was asked to fill in for the Netherlands international in subsequent wins over Ajax and Sheffield United, having proven he can play at the back during a 2-0 triumph at Chelsea earlier in the season.

The Brazilian impressed enough to retainhis place alongside Joe Gomez for themeeting withFC Midtjylland at Anfield on Tuesday, but he was unable to finish the match after going down with a hamstring injury.

Klopp confirmed Fabinho will undergo a scan on the issue after the Champions League clash, but didn't sound optimistic about his chances of being fit for thePremier League encounter with West Ham at the weekend.

"He felt his hamstring, and that's not good," the German boss told reporters. "He said he could have played on but no sprints, which doesn't help. We will see, we will know more after a scan but clearly, it isn't good."

Gomez is now the only fully-fit senior central defender in Liverpool's squad, with19-year-old Rhys Williams in line for a run in the team after a solid cameo in the 2-0 win overMidtjylland.

Lallana, who joined Brighton after being released by the Reds at the end of the 2019-20 campaign, thinks Klopp will try to turn a mounting defensive crisis into a positive, having always relished being an "underdog" over the course of his managerial career.

“He won’t use anything as an excuse, he’ll say it’s the same for every team,” the ex-Anfield favourite told BT Sport. “He’ll say,‘we’ve got the squad to adapt and deal with it’.

“He’ll meet the challenge face on, the lads will be in tomorrow and they’ll recover and he’ll pick a team to beat West Ham. Okay, it’s going to be a test but it’s a test that he’ll love and the lads will get together and help each other out.”
