Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on several players who have been left at home for the trip to face Ligue 1 side Toulouse in the Europa League. A win for the Reds would seal progression through to the knockout phase.

What's happened?

Virgil van Dijk, Ryan Gravenberch and Curtis Jones have all been left in Liverpool as the Reds flew south. The Liverpool captain should be back for the weekend but Gravenberch and Jones may not be.

Klopp also spoke about Luis Díaz, though there is no major update on the situation involving his father as yet. Rather than stay at home, he chose to go with his Liverpool teammates.

Liverpool faces Toulouse tomorrow and then Brentford this weekend in the Premier League before the international break. Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium is the first game back at the end of the month.

What's been said?

Virgil van Dijk is 'a little bit ill' and so was left at home. "He should be alright for the weekend," Klopp said. "Ryan [Gravenberch] got a little niggle in the knee," the German added. He might be back for the weekend but 'definitely' will be after the weekend.

"Curtis [Jones] had a hamstring," Klopp said. "Not massive. After the international break, he will be back, but before, not."

"No real news," Klopp said on Díaz. "He decided last week that because he cannot go to Colombia, he is here. When he is in training, it is a safe place and everything is OK. He wanted to travel with us, so he is here and he is available."

What does it mean?

Van Dijk would have been unlikely to be involved in a game like this anyway, but it makes sense to give him some extra time off. Jarell Quansah, who Klopp praised, is a good option to play here.

The other players who are unavailable will not be big losses here. As long as they are back available again to play on the other side of the international break, Liverpool should be able to cope. Hopefully Jones is not out for long, as he has already had a season disrupted by his suspension for his red card against Spurs.
