In light of Virgil van Dijk’s suspension, Liverpool has already signed a “machine” that can serve as a backup.

For Saturday’s return to action at Wolves, Liverpool may experience a minor defensive problem, but Jürgen Klopp may already have a solution in place.

The international break will be welcome to an end, according to Jürgen Klopp. It is well known that the Liverpool manager dislikes when his players are called up to active service for their respective nations, and in this case, it is easy to see why.

Prior to being forced to pause after only four games, Liverpool had been gaining some serious momentum. The Reds put in their greatest performance shortly before the break against Aston Villa, and Klopp will be hoping they can continue that form against Wolves on Saturday.


However, the Liverpool manager may have some issues with his team before the trip to Molineux. Ibrahima Konaté was injured before to the victory at Newcastle, and Virgil van Dijk afterwards received a suspension that has already been prolonged, preventing him from making his return to duty this weekend.


Additionally, Trent Alexander-Arnold is questionable for injury after being substituted against Villa, and Conor Bradley is out this weekend with a stress fracture in his back, which limits the choices for defense.

The only senior center-backs available to face Wolves may be Joe Gomez and Jol Matip. It would be a lot to expect of the 20-year-old Jarell Quansah to start after only a few first-team outings this season, but he might be a possibility to allow Gomez to cover at right-back for Alexander-Arnold.


For Stefan Bajeti, the chance might perhaps come too soon. The young player made an impression during his time in Klopp’s team last season, but since returning from injury, he has failed to play for Liverpool.
