Liverpool could be without Naby Keita against Manchester United, as well as Joel Matip, the Liverpool Echo report.

Big concern has emerged around Liverpool as Matip was not spotted in training yesterday.

The Daily Mirror reported earlier in the week that Matip looked set to lose his race to be fit for the weekend.

But the bad news has not stopped there, as it seems that the rangy central defender may not be the only player that Jurgen Klopp has to make do without on Sunday.

The Echo report that Keita is ‘facing a battle’ to be fit and that he remains a doubt to feature, despite Klopp saying he would be back ‘soon’ just last week.

That news comes as a further blow to Liverpool, who continue to suffer badly with injury issues.

Keita may have actually had a chance to feature against United had he been fit, as the Reds have not looked at their flowing best going forward in recent weeks.

Keita’s creativity could have aided Liverpool in attacking sense.

However, the Reds will have to do without their Guinean midfielder, with Klopp now facing a number of selection dilemmas ahead of his side’s biggest game of the season to date.
