With the game of Liverpool against Bayern Munich, Joe Gomez of Bayern will not be featured due to the leg injury sustained in his first leg of the Champions league and Van Dijik misses out too due to the three yellow cards which led to his one-match ban.
The Reds are set to welcome the German giants to Anfield on February 19.
The competition will be staged on home soil, and Klopp’s side will be desperate to secure a positive result and claim the upper hand in the heavyweight European encounter.
Van Dijk is set to miss out after picking up three yellow cards in the group stage to earn a one-match ban, while Gomez will be unavailable as he continues to work his way back from a broken leg suffered against Burnley in early December.
Questioned on if, the England International will be ready, Klopp said: “I don’t think so. Not a realistic target. After that? We will see”.
Before facing Bayern Munich, Liverpool will have two Premier League fixtures to contend with against West Ham and Bournemouth.
Trent Alexander-Arnold sits alongside Gomez on the treatment table, with the 20-year-old nursing a knee complaint.
“Trent and Joe are not fit,” Klopp said.
“There is no return date for Joe. Trent is getting better and better and better and is really close. I hope he is in full training next week.”
