Liverpool are reportedly looking at the possibility of sending up to six young players out on loan in the January transfer window. Jurgen Klopp has a Beverly depleted squad due to a large number of injuries.
Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk are out long term while Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara are carrying little knocks.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is still a few weeks away from returning while Mohamed Salah is unavailable for selection due to a second positive coronavirus test.
Then there are those such as Fabinho who are still not fully fit leaving Klopp with limited options heading into the festive period.
The Liverpool boss has trusted a few of his young players to fill in where needed at times already this season.

“It’s very important but there is still some distance between us and the U23s,” he said,
“They cannot play exactly as we do for many reasons.
“The boys know before they arrive for our training what we want them to do.
“Those that have come up so far have been incredible.
“Nat [Phillips] and Rhys [Williams] played an excellent game. Curtis [Jones] is the best example. We are blessed with a lot of talent.”
Despite the injury crisis, Klopp isn’t looking for any sympathy.
“There’s no season where we have no problems with injuries,” he said.
“When they are in the same position it makes it tricky.
“But there’s no self-pity here or feeling sorry for ourselves.
“A minute after finding out [an injury] you are in the solution process.”
