Liverpool will meet Monterrey in Doha at the Club World Cup today at 18:30 CET as the teams fight to go to the final where Flamengo awaits.

However, a big injury blow hit Liverpool today.

The medical department confirmed that Virgil van Dijk will be unavailable to participate in the clash today.

Jurgen Klopp decided to put in Jordan Henderson at the centre-back spot, considering that Dejan Lovren is also injured.

Sadio Mane will also start on the bench, waiting for his opportunity to shine.

The conditions are very harsh, given the hot temperature in Doha.

However, the Reds will have to do without Van Dijk as they look to become the World Champions.
