Klopp names two forgotten men who ‘will have a part to play’

Jurgen Klopp has named the two forgotten Liverpool players who “will have a part to play” this season.

Klopp has named an unchanged Liverpool side for the first three games of the Premier League campaign. It appears to have worked; they are top of the table.

But he admits Liverpool “lost the plot” in the 1-0 win over Brighton, and the starting line-up could therefore need refreshing soon.

“We had outstanding counter-pressing situations in the first half. In the second half we had none,” said the manager. “We were still around but we didn’t win the balls. It’s not because the boys didn’t want it but because they felt the intensity.”

Klopp has now hinted at potential changes, with two forgotten forwards in the queue to feature.

“I know how it looks at the moment – we played three times now with the same line-up,” he said.

“Leicester we will see what we can do and then hopefully they all come back healthy [from the international break].

“But we have to use all of them and we will do. Then the games are really coming, it is an intense time and it looks like ‘How can you leave out him or him or him?’.

“Don’t forget Divock Origi and Dom Solanke trained really, really good and are not in the squad. That is really hard but they will be used as well and they will have a part to play.”
