Liverpool will be without Joel Matip for tomorrow's trip to Brighton after Jürgen Klopp confirmed the defender sustained a muscle injury during Wednesday's win over Stoke City.

However, the Reds could welcome back Ragnar Klavan for the meeting with Chris Hughton's team, with the Estonian set to return to training today after recovering from illness.

Adam Lallana could also be in contention after missing the victory over the Potters with a minor muscle strain.

Klopp said: “We had a few knocks how it is after a game, and it is the shorter part of the week with Wednesday and Saturday [games]. It’s not a long time to recover from different things.

“Final decisions will be made after the session at three o’clock [today].”

Brighton boss Chris Hughton, meanwhile, will welcome Gaetan Bong back into his squad after the defender missed Tuesday's goalless draw with Crystal Palace due to a niggle.

"We're very fortunate at the moment with the fact we’re in a good place with injuries, and we don't have anything else to report. Steve Sidwell is the only one not available to us at the moment," Hughton told his own media briefing.

Hughton also spoke glowingly about Klopp and the Premier League's top goalscorer Mohamed Salah.

"I’ve not met him personally before but what you see is what you get. He’s got a great enthusiasm for the game and a good CV from Germany," he said of the Reds' manager.

"This is probably one of the best periods he’s had with the team since he arrived, given the form the side are currently in."

On Salah, he noted: "He’ll be difficult to face that’s for sure. He’s been in good form for the last few seasons but most people in England may not have been so aware of that. 

"At the moment he’s outstanding - he started on the bench on Wednesday and still managed to come on and score two goals, and that shows the real quality he has.

"He scores different types of goals as well. We’re very conscious of both his form and his abilities ahead of Saturday."
