Liverpool boss has selection headache ahead of Blues Cup clash

  • That sounds relatively low but Gazzetta are tough with their grading

"It's not about the other three competitions tomorrow night".

The clubs now occupy two of the top three spots in the Premier League, with Liverpool top with 18 points from a possible 18, and Chelsea two places and two points further back.

And the 24-year-old could get a chance to impress in the EFL Cup against Chelsea on Wednesday, although Klopp feels Fabinho still has more to learn.

"That's pleased me the most, the impact of the boys who came in".

And while the sheer competition in midfield looks the obvious reason for Fabinho's absences, it's the remarkable lack of minutes that confuses supporters. He is getting better and better but hasn't reached his full potential. It's always different. But it will happen because it's not really hard.

He fielded a youth team in an FA Cup match not so long ago, but he doesn't need to do that now when you look at the top-class players in his squad who need some game time against Chelsea tonight. It needs to be natural.

I am all for giving young kids a chance when the time is right, but Chelsea are likely to field a strong team and this is not the moment for Klopp to take too many risks and threaten the momentum the team has built up so far.

Former Liverpool and Aston Villa forward Stan Collymore says Chelsea should cut their losses and sell Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, 25, if they want to win the Premier League. They are here because they did what they did.

Often referred to as "Sarri-ball", the Italian's approach is heavily reliant on possession and a 4-3-3 formation that requires players to fulfil specific roles.

Half a year? Six whole months?

Klopp had already said when talking about Sarri's time at Chelsea: "It is the biggest change of system I ever saw in such a short period of time. Wow".

So I don't think they should prioritise that over the Premier League. Always the Premier League, then you have to play one of the other ones.

Milner has created two goals in the Premier League this season and scored one, surpassing his total for past year.

And Fabinho isn't a bad secret weapon to deploy when things really hot up over December and January.

Souness says Liverpool's transfer business has been exemplary. Have your say in the comments section below.
