Klopp says Liverpool will sign ONE or TWO defenders this January

Liverpool have neen struggling this season and their course to defend their Premier League title has proved tough for Jurgen Klopp as their injury list has continued to increase.
Last season, Liverpool cruise to their Premier League title for the first time in 30 years after they clinched the title with a 15 points gap. 

But this season, Jurgen Klopp has lost his first centre back pairings of Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk to injuries. 

Fabinho who happens to be a midfielder has been drafted into that position to play along with Matip. But the two have joined the list of injured players. 

Fabinho missed Liverpool's 3-1 win over Tottenham on Thursday night with a muscle injury, while Joel Matip suffered ankle ligament damage and was substituted at half-time. 

This means both aren't expected to be fit for this weekend game against West Ham. 

Klopp has expressed his disappointment as he lost his centre backs, stating that both players will not be available to face West Ham. 

Klopp said: "Last night after the game I was pretty emotional just because at half-time the boys [are] sitting there. Now, meanwhile, there are still glimpses of hope that it’s not serious.

"No, we don't have the final result because the scan didn’t happen yet. So we [will] know more in three or four hours hopefully. 

"Fabinho [has] no chance for the weekend."

Liverpool were able to record their first win in the Premier League on Thursday night when they defeated Tottenham, as goals from Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mane handed the Reds three points despite Hojbjerg consolation goal.

Meanwhile, Klopp will have to turn to youngsters for this weekend, Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams are both potential options for this weekend game. 

Jurgen Klopp has now confirmed the club will sign a defender in the transfer market before the close of the January window. 

Klopp said: "I don't know, but we will try. We always try. It would be funny if you thought Liverpool were fine with the situation, that we don't care or don't try.

"We try, but as you know, there's nothing to say until something happens. We will see. The situation yesterday didn't make it easier but still we are trying to do the right things. If it's possible then we will do it. If not, then not."
