Klopp names two surprise options to fill in at right-back

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool may “have to be creative” to cover for an increasing amount of injuries at right-back.

Liverpool face something of an injury crisis in defence ahead of their meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.

Joe Gomez was already ruled out of the game at Anfield, but will be joined on the sidelines by Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip.

As a result, Nathaniel Clyne is in the frame to start at right-back, with James Milner and Fabinho the other options.

But Klopp says the Reds “have to be creative”, and could call on a couple of youngsters instead.

The German named Curtis Jones, who impressed in pre-season, as well as Rafa Camacho, who did the very same as it just so happens.

“Clyne is a very experienced player – it’s not ideal and we won’t rush him,” he said.

“We have other options as well so we won’t push Clyney.

“Rafa Camacho played outstandingly in pre-season and Curtis Jones too.

“We have other options and as long as we have options everything is fine. We have to be creative if not but all fine for the moment.”
