Jurgen Klopp made clear that, despite the changes made, his Liverpool XI selected to face Leicester City in the Third Round of the Carabao Cup would be the one with the best chance of winning the tie.
Interpret that as you will, though one might imagine that will require a loose interpretation on the manager’s part given that a tough trip to London to face Ange Postecoglu’s renewed Tottenham outfit awaits in three days’ time.
Regardless, the Merseysiders will be hopeful that they can kick off their journey in the domestic cup competitions with a statement win against the Foxes to pave the road toward silverware.
