How Klopp will relieve Van Dijk's replacement

After confirming that Fabinho, who had become Virgil van Dikj's replacement, will be low for at least several weeks After being injured last Tuesday in the game against Midtjylland in the Champions League (2-0 for Anfield's team), now for Jürgen Klopp, coach of the 'reds', the new challenge is to decide who will relieve the Brazilian in the axis of the back.

Regarding the extent of Fabinho's injury, Liverpool have not released her yet but it seems unlikely that she will be able to play until after the international break. The 'red' club hopes that the muscle break in the player's right leg will not be grade 3. But even if it is 2, the Brazilian could be low for 4 to 6 weeks. The 'reds' meet West Ham this Saturday, Atalanta on Tuesday and then Manchester City on Sunday.

Regarding who will replace Fabinho in the defense axis, Joel Matip's comeback against West Ham after his illness Muscle seems very doubtful and everything points to the young Rhys Williams.

Williams, 19, who came in for Fabinho when the Brazilian was injured on Tuesday, caused a great impressionn and it would now be the most feasible option for Klopp in order to accompany Joe Gomez in the axis of the “red” rear. Gomez is their only available 'senior' center. As for the youngest, the coach also has Nat Phillips (23) and Billy Koumetio (17). Between them and Williams, zero games played in the Premier.

Williams is a talent. The problem is that until Saturday every day a story will be written about him and he will have to show that he can cope, “said Klopp about the central defender. For some, Thiago's role in the media (he is expected to return to the hammers) can mitigate the impact of significant losses in defense. Van Dijk, probably the best center-back in the world, will probably miss the rest of the season.
