Jurgen Klopp may have to bring in additional faces this January to cope with losing players to injury and international duty.

Liverpool have had an impressive start to the season and have arguably been the most exciting team in the league so far. A lack of European football has meant they can focus on the league and they currently sit joint top with Man City and Arsenal on 23 points.  

Speaking ahead of the weekend's fixtures in relation to Ings, Klopp said: "The surgery was very positive and the rehab has started already. We will wait for him and give him all the time he needs. He will be back again and will be a Liverpool player 100%."

Looking ahead to the Winter and the likely loss of Saidio Mané due to international duty, Klopp said: "It’s not about how many strikers. Three strikers is enough, I think, but when Sadio is away we will be without a winger. We do not have many wingers, I would say. Roberto Firmino could play as a kind of a winger which would then give us just two strikers. That’s how it is. But it is a long way to go until January and that month is busy. If we can go to the semi-final of League Cup, it could be the busiest month of the year. We need to be prepared for this for sure.” 

Liverpool face Watford tomorrow who themselves are on a four match unbeaten run.
