Virgil van Dijk is set to be sidelined 'for a few weeks' due to injury, Jürgen Klopp confirmed.

The No.4 was forced off at half-time during Monday's Premier League fixture at Brentford with a muscle complaint. 

Offering an update on Van Dijk's fitness, Klopp told "It's not a short-term and I had longer-term injuries as well in my career as a manager. So, it's somewhere in between. 

"He will be out for a few weeks, definitely."

However, Jordan Henderson is expected to be available for selection again after sitting out the last match with a concussion. 

Klopp said at his pre-match press conference: "He did exactly what he was allowed to do yesterday – big parts of team training without heading. 

"And from today on, I think he's completely allowed to do everything."
