Joe Gomez is now the Reds’ only available center-back after Fabinho was sent off with a muscle complaint in the first half of Tuesday’s 2-0 Champions League win against FC Midtjylland.
Virgil van Dijk is most likely out for the season while Joel Matip continues to be hampered by the leg problem that has missed him in the last three games.
Liverpool travel to Italy to face Atalanta in their next Champions League Group D game next Tuesday after West Ham was entertained in the Premier League on Saturday night.
And Klopp pointed out that Liverpool’s full program was asked when Matip or Fabinho would be available.
“I don’t know,” he said. “We have to see. That’s the way it is.
“If it were the last game of the season, we could make one or the other fit for the game.
“But we’re playing again three days later and we need players.
“We cannot use the players who are now injured on the first day of non-injury. You need adequate preparation for the rest of the season.
“We always try to juggle between the fit players when they can play and when we can use the others. We try everything to make someone as fit as possible. ”
Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Kostas Tsimikas failed again on Tuesday while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continues to recover from a long-term knee problem.
And with Liverpool facing an injury crisis at the center-back, Rhys Williams is now facing a Premier League debut this weekend after playing the final hour against Midtjylland as a substitute for Fabinho.
“He did it really well,” said Klopp. “The only problem is we have four days to play the West Ham game and people will make a story about it. He has to prove that he can handle it and that everything around him has been calm (until now).
“He’s a talented boy, he plays for the English U20, he’s 19 years old and hasn’t played in the Premier League yet, but has played two Champions League games and won both games, which is pretty extraordinary.

“We have very young and inexperienced alternatives and it looks like we will have to use one of them. I do not know yet.
“But to be really clear and positive, Rhys wasn’t a problem for us in one situation, he had a really good game.”
