Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is determined to keep striker Daniel Strurridge and midfielder Emre Can from leaving the club.

England international Sturridge is being linked with a January move away from Anfield to boost his World Cup hopes, having been left out of the last squad by manager Gareth Southgate.

Can, meanwhile, is out of contract at the end of the season and seemingly destined to join Serie A side Juventus. The Germany international is free to negotiate with rival clubs from overseas from 1 January and can sign a pre-contract agreement ahead of the summer.

But Klopp is unwilling to allow either player to leave without a fight and insists Liverpool must make themselves an attractive proposition.

"There's nothing to say here about it [Sturridge's future]," he said, according to Sky Sports. "You can't expect an answer. It's normal he wants to play more."

"[Can] could still sign a contract in May. We want to keep him. We have to be as attractive as possible as a club."

The 3-3 draw with Sevilla means Liverpool have shipped 28 goals in all competitions this season and they welcome Chelsea this weekend hoping to turn around their defensive fortunes.

The Reds stormed into a three-goal half-time lead before being pegged back by the La Liga outfit in the second 45 minutes, with Guido Pizarro netting in the third minute of added time to complete the comeback.

Klopp is naturally hopeful of a different outcome when Chelsea visit Merseyside.

"Yes, we made mistakes, yes, we were too passive, we were too deep as a group," he added. "But we should have scored a fourth goal.

"It will be a different game against Chelsea. If we can create a special atmosphere that would help us. Our job is to stay really consistent. Chelsea, what a team, champions of last year, it will be a really tough job.

"They lost decisive players with [Nemanja] Matic and [Diego] Costa. With Chelsea last year, everything worked. They didn't need many chances to win a game. It's difficult to play the same season again, especially when you lose players."

Joel Matip missed the draw in Sevilla but is set to return after a thigh problem. However, Can is a doubt despite playing the final 27 minutes of the Champions League game in midweek after replacing Philippe Coutinho.

Adam Lallana will be bidding to make his first appearance of the season after returning from a hamstring injury, while goalkeepers Danny Ward and Adam Bogdan, as well as defender Nathaniel Clyne, are longer-term absentees.

"Joel Matip trained with the team on Thursday [23 November]," he added. "But Emre Can, he is struggling a little bit. He's a doubt."
