He could therefore be part of the Austrian squad, but Trent Alexander-Arnold will not be able to recover from a hamstring injury in time to join him.
VanDijk is probably by far the most experienced player in the squad, but Klopp has confirmed he will take the competition seriously.
Youngd defenderJarell Quansah impressed against Wolves and should keep his place here, while new signings Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch are expected to partner Harvey Elliott in midfield, while Thiago Alcantara is still out with a hip injury.
Kloppcould offer Ben Doak a starting place just days after the talented striker signed a new contract at Anfield.
