Before Liverpool’s match against Napoli, Jurgen Klopp has dropped a major early squad selection clue.
Despite preparing for a dead rubber in the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp has claimed it is not the time to alter his Liverpool squad.
Worryingly for Liverpool fans, their Premier League woes continued on Saturday with a 2-1 defeat to struggling Leeds United. It drops Liverpool to ninth place, and doubts about them making the playoffs this year are mounting.
Klopp’s focus shifts to tomorrow’s Champions League match against Napoli. Each team has already secured a spot in the round of 16, therefore this matchup might be used to rest starters before the next league matchup with Tottenham.
Despite the loss to Leeds, Klopp has indicated that he is not planning any major roster changes.
The manager at Anfield added, “There is no justification for it or anything, but we have the issue from day one with injuries or half-fit guys who are not injured.” That’s what we’re thinking about right now, and it’s why certain guys get to go early and others have to go frequently.
That’s how things stand, and the next game is coming up soon. You could be thinking, “Naples! It’s a home game, and we’ve already clinched first place in our group. It’s Liverpool vs Napoli, so I think we have to step up our game.
At the very least, we’ll need 11 starters once again, and then a few days later, we’ll face Tottenham on the road. No, this is not the time for a complete overhaul; rather, you must go on and battle for forward motion, self-assurance, and safety.
