Jurgen Klopp’s pre-match press conference was as intriguing as ever, as the German made a special effort to praise his goalkeeper Simon Mignolet – who’s been criticised recently for his Europa League mistake.
Klopp said he doesn’t want to replace Mignolet, but might rest him for the League Cup tie with Southampton on Wednesday evening – with Adam Bogdan coming in instead.
Klopp went on to salute his defence, also telling the media that the League Cup was important and that’d he’d pick the best side available to him. (That ‘best’ side may be with the weekend in mind, of course!)
Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson and Coutinho could all feature.
