Liverpool's U-23 coach Neil Critchley will be in charge of the team at Villa Park and Juergen Klopp said he and the first-team squad will be supporting them from afar in their quarter-final

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp will gather with his players Tuesday in their Doha team hotel - to watch Liverpool in action back in England in the League Cup.

The bizarre situation has come about because the European champion are in Qatar ahead of Wednesday's Club World Cup semi-final against Mexico's Monterrey. 

But a fixture clash means another Liverpool team, made up of youth players, will be facing Aston Villa around 24 hours earlier.

Liverpool's U-23 coach Neil Critchley will be in charge of the team at Villa Park and Klopp said he and the first-team squad will be supporting them from afar in their quarter-final.

The runaway Premier League leader will watch the first game of the Club World Cup last four at the Doha's Khalifa International Stadium, between Brazilian's Flamengo and Asian champion Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia before rushing back to their hotel.

To add to the complications, the U-23 side has been weakened further with Curtis Jones and Neco Williams called up to be part of the team in Qatar.

But Klopp says he has faith that the youthful side will be able to put in a strong performance against more experienced opponent.

Some of the youngsters could even play themselves into contention for a trip to Qatar.
