Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk a doubt for trip to Chelsea

  • Solanke is set to start for Liverpool against his former club

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp warned his side that they will need to be at 100% on Saturday evening, naming Hazard, Willian, Kovacic, Kante and Jorginho as Chelsea's most risky players.

The Reds have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven Premier League games, so it should be an exciting encounter whatever happens. But I think I tried to do my job the best I could. "But so far, so good and the boys are fully in it and ready to go". If Virgil is fit and can play, then he will play. "But it would be cool if we could make these changes again because not playing for a long time and then playing these 95, 96, 97 minutes and then playing three days later again would, of course, not be pure joy". For that, yes, his impact is always obvious.

"He's probably not in the first XI when we're talking about the players who are going to play against Manchester City or Barcelona in the Champions League final". "I didn't need that game to find out about that".

"We have to see".

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard on Wednesday scored a sensational goal against arch-rivals Liverpool in the League clash to end Jurgen Klopp's side's flawless run this season.

Following the game, Klopp was seen berating Shaqiri, with suggestions the German was unhappy with the summer signing's performance. 'To make it clear, I didn't. "What I said was about the free-kick, nothing else". It was only about that'.

"He is a different option for Klopp and he certainly brings his own quality to what is already a superb array of attacking options for the Liverpool boss". Klopp maintains he is more than happy with what the Switzerland worldwide has done so far.

"He's inspiring him by explaining to him exactly what he wants". That he doesn't think about anything, just plays football. We scored a similar goal a week or so ago and it's hard to defend, but of course it is better to defend and we know that.


As much as Maurizio Sarri will be eager to get his hands on his first piece of silverware as a manager, the EFL Cup is not a priority for Chelsea.

Initially a surprise selection, the 21-year old grew in confidence and stature as pre-season went on with his ability on the ball perhaps the most impressive part of his inclusion.

'That's where he is at the moment, but I'm completely happy.

"We have those players as well so it's good".

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season was ended in midweek, and Klopp has dismissed the suggestion that exiting the League Cup allows his side to focus on other competitions.

"They are nearly ready, so the situation is better than three or four days ago".

"We have a good group and the only thing we can do is put out the best goalkeeper for Liverpool". Three times. And even then still not possible to score a goal, but he did because of a ideal finish. I can respect that but everybody is defendable.

"Game by game we keep improving and on Saturday we will be going in with the same target - to win".
