Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are almost fully recovered from their respective injuries, but won't take part in Monday's FA Cup match against Wolves at Molineux and are doubtful for the match against Brighton.
That means that Klopp may be forced to play an experimental centre back pairing for the game, with Virgil van Dijk having featured heavily for Liverpool over the Christmas period, and Dejan Lovren struggling in their recent loss to Manchester City.
Gomez has being sidelined with a fractured leg since early December while Matip sustained a fractured collarbone four weeks ago, but both should return to full team training ahead of Liverpool's next Premier League match against Brighton.
“[We need] To be creative," the German said.
“Or we play the two [Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk] again, we will see.
“Joe and Joel look good - obviously not good enough for Monday, not good enough I would say for the game after that, for Brighton, [but] hopefully then they are at least in full team training," he added.
