Jurgen Klopp says he has no new concerns about injuries before the Champions League clash against Genk on Tuesday night.

The Reds have won two and lost one of their three Champions League games this year as they try to defend their title.

And Joel Matip, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne will be Liverpool's only three players away, although Mohamed Salah hobbled from a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

"I think it's like before the last game [against] Aston Villa, nothing has changed," Klopp told reporters.

“No one told me anything. Yesterday, in training, everyone was able to do what they had to do, but this time of year we know that things can happen overnight [but] no, nothing [new] that I know of. Everything should be fine.

“The problem now is not Sunday's game [against Manchester City] because between Tuesday and Sunday is a long time, but of course we have to think a bit about Saturday to Tuesday – this is the shortest interval between games , so we have to think.

"But it's all about having the best formation for this game, nothing more. It has always been and always will be. Like I said, we respected them a lot and we knew how hard it was there. Yes, we scored the goals, but it wasn't the best performances of the last 20 years and one reason [for that] was Genk, to be honest.

"So we hope to have some new legs. Of course we want this, but it's not like we will make so many changes that you will no longer be able to recognize our team and think about 'who is this?'

“No, this period was absolutely good because we made changes against Arsenal, we had to play and then we played with Aston Villa, now we have to look a little at what we will do tomorrow night. But then we have enough time to prepare for City. "
