Liverpool not expected to make any more signings in current transfer window

Liverpool took on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

The Reds would eventually emerge with a 2-0 victory over a 10-man Chelsea side thanks to a Sadio Mane brace.

Before the tie, though, Liverpool were dealt a couple of injury blows.

With Dejan Lovren now at Zenit, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were expected to fight it out for a place alongside Virgil van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s defence.

However, both stopper’s were omitted from the Reds’ matchday squad to take on Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp would then explain that whilst Gomez was probably only out for one day, Matip could be facing a few weeks on the sidelines:

“So, Joe is not a real concern – it’s probably only today. Same with Billy [Koumetio].

“With Joel, we have to see – it could take a few days longer. [It’s] muscle. After injuries that’s how it is. He looked perfect in the pre-season since he trained. But now he got a little problem and we have to react, so that’s how it is. That’s why we start how we start.”

Liverpool’s business done

Said injuries forced Klopp to deploy Fabinho at centre-half on Sunday.

Granted, the Brazilian has played there on a few occasions before and he did manage to keep Chelsea from scoring – though the home side’s attacking threat was dramatically reduced when they went down to ten men on the stroke of half time.

Regardless of Fabiano’s decent display, though, Liverpool fans would still probably like one or two new faces to come in at the back this window.

Because, even if Fabinho can do a job at centre-back, would Liverpool not want him playing in his best position whenever possible?

Despite this, the Athletic are reporting that Liverpool will not sign any more players in the current window.

It is added that Jurgen Klopp views Fabinho as his 4th-choice centre-back, with that view only reinforced by his display against Chelsea:
