Jordan Henderson Misses Liverpool Training Ahead of Champions League Tie With Genk

Klopp refuses to be distracted by Man City as Liverpool welcome Genk

Liverpool have a host of midfield options at their disposal, with the likes of Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all at the club, but the Reds are always on the lookout to strengthen their squad further.

Prior to the game, Liverpool had a close encounter against Aston Villa in the Premier League, where Sadio Mane's goal in the extra-time handed Liverpool a crucial win. Divock Origi in for a rested Roberto Firmino completed the five changes.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, playing in a less familiar advanced role, restored the home side's advantage in the 53rd minute, collecting a neat pass from Mohamed Salah on the edge of the box and beating Genk keeper Gaetan Coucke with a low drive on the turn. It was not a complete game, but they scored a really nice goal. "I've scored a lot of goals from his set-pieces already, and today there was a good connection between us again", he added.

When asked about possible arrivals in the winter window, he told reporters: "The priority now is to get the players fit and get to the next round [of the Europa League ]".

Jurgen Klopp and his opposite number Felice Mazzu came out for the second half unchanged from the first spell.

But he is expected to be back on the bench on Sunday when Manchester City visit Anfield for the marquee clash of the weekend at the top of the league table.

The defeat left Genk rooted to the bottom of the group and dashed their hopes of qualifying for the next round with just a single point after four matches but Samatta assured they will end their group campaign on a high with fixtures against RB Salzburg and Napoli coming up next.
