Naby Keita ruled out of Cardiff City clash, confirms Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp

One of four players to join Liverpool in the summer - along with Naby Keita, Fabinho and Alisson - Shaqiri, no stranger to English football having played for Stoke between 2015 and 2018, has gradually assimilated into Klopp's first team.

But now, almost five months after Liverpool announced his transfer, Fabinho has been unleashed. Under Jurgen Klopp, that record reads W7-D0-L0 by an aggregate 21-2. However, the questions postmatch on Wednesday were of a different nature.

'[Keita and Henderson] will not work out for tomorrow, for sure not, ' Klopp said. They are good on the ball with quick players out wide. It's quite impressive what people saw tonight. No way. It is inconceivable that he is approaching this game in this manner with his players. "That was the start, now let's carry on". What must also be pleasing for Klopp is that he was not only contributing in a defensive sense.

However, he was also ruled out of the game as the Reds went on to a 4-0 rout of their Serbian visitors. But the pair would turn out to be crucial components in Liverpool's run to the Champions League final.

At time of writing just under €50,000 have been raised, and Klopp donated a sizeable €5,000 to the cause on Friday. How do you stop Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah?

With the Reds taking on Cardiff City in the Premier League on Saturday, the club will dedicate the afternoon to Cox and his family's efforts to support him. "It was just a good game, a good football game and they could finish the situations because we had the right movements in the right moment".

"If somebody would have told me in my life that that would have happened - me, a German, and two Dutch guys in such important roles!"

Van Dijk has already proved himself to be a fan favourite at Anfield and it looks like he's a popular man in the dressing room, too. However, Pep Guardiola's team now has the better goal difference at the moment but with the Reds firing on all cylinders that lead could well be reduced this weekend.

Cardiff City skipper Sean Morrison has warned Liverpool that they will be facing a tough and hungry bunch of lads when they line up against the Bluebirds at Anfield on Saturday.
