Posted by

The update on the skipper’s knee concern comes courtesy of a tweet from Goal journalist, Neil Jones, though would seems to lack the seriousness required to potentially force the German into a rethink with regard to his selection plans.

The Englishman did come under heavy criticism from fans online for a lacklustre performance, though we find it hard to see Klopp abandoning his captain’s experience in the Champions League.

Changes will, of course, be made as we look to make use of a rare degree of availability across the squad to maximise our chances of effectively competing across all competitions this term.

After coming on as a substitute against the Clarets at Turf Moor, we’d expect to see Thiago Alcantara drafted back into the midfield three in place of Naby Keita and Diogo Jota coming in for Bobby Firmino – potentially amongst other alterations.
