Fabinho situation not complicated, insists Klopp

Jurgen Klopp

GETTY Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp has made minimal changes this season

This week sees Chelsea Football Club and Liverpool FC lock horns twice in the space of three days.

Saturday's Premier League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge may be the priority this week and he might be right to think like that, but he has a squad with enough depth to ensure he can be ambitious in his team selection in this first game against the Blues.

Of the challenge Chelsea face, he added: "Against a team who have worked with the same coach for four or five years, I don't remember exactly (Klopp became Liverpool manager in October 2015), they are a step forward from us in this moment".

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he will play a "really strong side" for the cup fixture but the inclusion of Mignolet was the only change he confirmed at his pre-match news conference. That's why I say it's quite impressive what he's done in a short period.

He is a unique option given he has only been selected by 4.6 per cent of Sky Sports Six-a-Side players; a stand-out performance could put you ahead of the pack. "But I know there will be no (such) player".

"But he obviously doesn't need as much time as I do [to make an impact]". The boys have to prove themselves constantly, to show they are ready for all competitions and each game. Joel was brilliant, really brilliant. The pressure is already there.

Delaying Kavanaugh's confirmation could give time for doubts about him to take root or for any fresh accusations to emerge. On Saturday, Ford sent a personal letter to the Judiciary Committee chairman, Sen.

"He can not be settled, but it's a good thing that Millie, Naby and Fabinho played together in this formation in pre-season". That's the best thing to say. "They are all in, nobody is out".

Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita also moved to Anfield this summer and Klopp feels he now has a squad capable of challenging on multiple fronts. "We will see how he is today and make a decision about him".

In the two most recent games, Daniel Sturridge played well against PSG, with a goal and lots of hard work.

"Yes, Simon would have been ready to go to another club to be the number one in the world, that was clear, but we couldn't do it and since then he's been brilliant".

"There are only two competitions per week".

Waiting patiently for Fabinho to adapt to Liverpool's style of play could be the ideal way for Klopp to introduce him to devastating effect during the tough winter months. "It depends on us how long we will play them".
