Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have only started two games together all season. One of them was in our 6-1 demolition of Southampton in the League Cup quarter-final, the other was in 3-2 loss to the same team a few weeks ago.
Klopp, however, has refused to rule out pairing the two together against Dortmund.
“Maybe I will play all our goalscorers on the pitch and hope Dortmund don’t recognise this,” he said (via SkySports). It’s a comment that suggests their might also be room on the pitch for the recently-returned Roberto Firmino.
Whatever line-up he chooses, he admits he cannot afford for it to be wrong:
“You always know when you have players [available] you have difficult decisions,” Klopp said.
“This is more a moment where you cannot make any mistakes as manager. It is not about a formation. We have a few different possibilities to find the line-up and there is no final decision.
“We have to show we are prepared. It is not about how many strikers we have on the pitch. It is always about being brave, especially against a high-quality team.”
Origi is in blistering form after three goals in his last 135 minutes of football, while Sturridge turned in his best performance in more than a month as we swept away Stoke on Sunday.
Firmino is also an interesting option. Klopp has typically gone with Firmino as the lead striker in the biggest games this season, could he be tempted to spring another surprise by leaving both of the in-form forwards on the bench?
