Oxlade-Chamberlain, Solanke & more – 5 players who would benefit from a start vs. Leicester

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 18/09/2017 - 18:00
Danny Ward

So much has been made of Klopp’s decision to rotate Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius that Danny Ward has almost been forgotten about entirely.

Despite a highly impressive, promotion-winning season on loan at Huddersfield Town, it was always clear that the Wales international would be Liverpool’s third-choice goalkeeper in 2017/18.

He has got the nod against Leicester, however, and a dominant performance would do no harm whatsoever.

Both Mignolet and Karius continue to prove divisive with supporters, with neither ever fully convincing, and Ward will be desperate to put some pressure on his team-mates.

Ward’s last appearance for the Reds came at Swansea City in May 2016—he was actually his side’s best player in a disappointing 3-1 defeat.

The 24-year-old will have considered moving elsewhere to earn more playing time, but if he shines on Tuesday, will Klopp consider retaining him for another trip to the King Power on Saturday?

Andrew Robertson

Andrew Robertson‘s Liverpool career has to got off to a relatively low-key start, with just two appearances to his name so far.

That has nothing to do with the Scot’s form, though, with the Reds’ new signing being eased in, and Alberto Moreno playing well at left-back.

Robertson was named Man of the Match on his Liverpool debut, at home to Crystal Palace, and there were also impressive moments against Burnley on Saturday.

Moreno could return in midweek, but it makes sense for Klopp to keep Robertson in the side, in order for him to find some rhythm.

Taking him out against Leicester would lose any momentum he has gathered, and if Moreno is first choice currently, starting the Spaniard in a less important competition is needless.

Over time, Robertson will hope to usurp Moreno more regularly, and a starring role against the Foxes in the League Cup could see him face them this weekend, too.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Like Robertson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not yet been allowed to spring into life at Liverpool.

His debut came in the harrowing 5-0 loss at Man City, with the game effectively over as a contest when he was introduced, and he had no time to express himself at home to Sevilla in the Champions League.

The 24-year-old’s third showing was also as a second-half substitute on Saturday, and again, his cameo was more solid than spectacular.

Klopp will hand Oxlade-Chamberlain his first Reds start on Tuesday, though, and it will be exciting to see how he fares.

He could easily slot into one of the attacking midfield berths, allowing Emre Can or Georginio Wijnaldum a night off, but he would also be a good replacement for Mohamed Salah on the right wing.

ADVERTISING

A strong 90 minutes from the former Arsenal man would be a welcome confidence boost.

Marko Grujic

When it comes to discussing Liverpool’s midfield options, Marko Grujic is very easily forgotten.

The 21-year-old has suffered an injury-plagued Liverpool career to date, managing just 10 appearances since signing in January 2016, and he has subsequently dropped down the pecking order.

Klopp has confirmed that Grujic will start on Tuesday, however, and it is a great chance for him to produce a strong showing.

It is easy to forget how promising the Serb looked during his first pre-season last summer, and he can mature into an important player over time.

ADVERTISING

These are the matches that he must stamp his authority on, though, rather than show he is not yet ready to be a more reliable first-team member.

Quite how Klopp decides to use him in midfield is unknown, but he is talented enough to thrive in front of the defence or in a more attack-minded role.

Dominic Solanke

If one player is in need of a rest, it’s Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian has featured in every game so far this season, along with Salah and Joel Matip, and his all-action style means a rest against Leicester is crucial.

This should allow Dominic Solanke to make his first start for Liverpool, with the 20-year-old impressing since joining from Chelsea this summer.

He was inches away from being the match-winner against Burnley, and there is a confidence to his game that really catches the eye.

Whether Klopp uses him as a lone striker or in tandem with Daniel Sturridge in a 4-4-2 diamond formation remains to seen—the latter would be exciting to watch—but he has to start.

Leicester are a physical side, and Solanke’s height and fighting spirit will be a good match for the Foxes’ defenders.

Possible LFC XI vs. Leicester (4-4-2 diamond): Ward; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Lovren, Robertson; Milner, Grujic, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Woodburn; Sturridge, Solanke

JK on Leicester clash, cup importance and finishing chances

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 18/09/2017 - 16:59

Jürgen Klopp looked ahead to Liverpool’s Carabao Cup tie with Leicester City on Tuesday evening and underlined his side’s commitment to trying to win the trophy.

The Reds travel to the King Power Stadium for the clash and while the manager has revealed he will make changes to his team with the likes of Danny Ward and Marko Grujic set to start the fixture, he insists he’ll field a strong line-up.

Speaking during his pre-match press conference at Melwood on Monday afternoon, Klopp also reflected on the weekend draw with Burnley at Anfield, improving potency in front of goal and the integration of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into his plans.

Read on for a summary of some of his key points from the media briefing…

On how much importance will be placed on the Carabao Cup…

The same as every year. It’s the only competition we play tomorrow night, so there is 100 per cent focus on that game. It’s a big competition, I don’t care how people see it or whatever. As long as we can line up strong line-ups, we’ll line up strong line-ups! It’s a good moment, of course it’s a little bit strange that we play Leicester again at the weekend, and I am sure both sides will make a few changes – that makes sense for the players. But again, and I said this a few times, it’s not to go with weakened team in this competition, only to bring in fresh legs and give a few players the opportunity to play football, with a clear plan to win the game.

On whether Liverpool feel any added pressure to win a trophy…

No. Not on me, I am not sure if there is pressure on us because of this. I don’t know about things like this, so I don’t feel pressure - I feel the opportunity, I feel the chance to do something really good. I see the opportunity to win a very, very interesting cup competition, that’s all. How I said, I probably have pressure, yes, but it cannot be bigger than the pressure I put on myself and I’m used to that. I watch the games of United and City because it is interesting to see, but it is not my job to count points in this moment and say now they have this lead or this. They are obviously in good shape at the moment, but a season is sometimes like this and as long as you are really focused, as long as you’re ready, as long as your attitude is at 100 per cent, as long as you are greedy, you don’t have to look at other teams until you play against them then you have to look but the rest you have no influence [on]. [I] ignore it.

On whether he pays attention to how other Premier League rivals have begun the season...

I am absolutely not interested in other teams. I think it’s not a surprise City and United are in [good form]. In the end, probably it will be like it was a lot of times – the same names in different positions. We will see how it is, but it is not my job to think about this. I can also not say always what everybody wants to hear, so if I am disappointed, if I am frustrated with something then I probably would tell it. But if I am fine with a lot of things then I say it also. A lot of people don’t want to hear, I know that. If I am happy about performance in a lot of moments and if I want to build on the good things, it’s my decision to do it. I cannot change my opinion every day because out there, there are 500 million different opinions. I am not overly happy with our situation, but I know why it is like it is and so then it’s my job to work on this, to change that and to use our chances more often in the games. First of all – as I’ve said it a few times and you know it, [because] you are also long enough in the business – it’s all about creating these situations. Then you have to score, I know that, and we have to avoid goals of the opponent. We actually do this most of the time, but sometimes obviously not. In these times, that’s how it is and I cannot change that. I can only work with the boys, that’s what we do and we love working together, we enjoy this team and this situation in the moment, but we also know there’s a big responsibility. We are strong and that means we need to deliver and that’s what we are working on.

On how Liverpool go about becoming ‘more ruthless’…

If you look at the 125 years of history of Liverpool, that’s a little bit of problem that everybody knows still when it was better and nobody knows anymore when it was worse. That means obviously everybody feels a little bit of this pressure and when we don’t score the first goal, then it’s already ‘Again, like this’ and I think you can feel it in the stadium. We have to do it again, do it again, do it again and do it again. I am not 100 per cent sure about the word ‘ruthless’, but I didn’t see a lack of being ruthless. They wanted [it] and were in the right positions. It’s pretty clear, for example, Daniel Sturridge usually in a game like this, with the situations he had, will score. So will I go now to him and say, ‘Daniel, what was your idea in this game?’ It’s just about rhythm, feeling and stuff like this, then the boys will do it. Other chances – Dom Solanke came in and had a fantastic impact and, yes, he hit the crossbar. Do I really have to talk to him about crossbar or not crossbar? I’m not sure that really makes sense, but it is the world outside who talks about this, they forget these situations and the fantastic saves of the goalkeeper, [Nick] Pope. The opponent feels like they defended fantastic. We have to take the criticism, the blame, whatever – that’s how it is. In the end, it’s not allowed for us to be kind of happy or satisfied after a game like this, but we cannot question everything after a game like this because it is not for this. I am actually quite good in this – I am not sure if I am good enough, but I am good in this. I can see the good things and the bad things and work on both. Of course, we do finishing [in training] – we did it already by the way, not because we didn’t get the goal and we [will] now start increasing this. It’s just like it is; prepare for the next game and go for it.

On players gaining rhythm against Leicester….

We have enough games that the players can gain rhythm step by step. It’s a situation [in which] we have to make changes, we have to rotate, that’s 100 per cent clear. With a player like Sadio suspended it’s not 100 per cent possible, but we could line-up with the all the time with the same team. We could have done that so far, apart from the suspension, and then wait until somebody is injured and cannot play anymore, so another player comes in. But we have to do it [rotate] because we are convinced about this squad, so that’s why we gave different players an opportunity. In the early stage of the season there are different reasons why it’s not that easy, but we will reach that point, I’m 100 per cent sure. Daniel [Sturridge] had not that many games or minutes, but it was really good [to play] 90 minutes. He was physically really strong, always in the dangerous areas, involved in pretty much everything. That’s really good and he made a really good game, but in the end if you talk about finishing and how we can train this, I don’t think I can give Danny a lot of tips on how he could score more often. He is an outstandingly good striker when he is fit and everybody knows that.

On Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s integration into his plans…

We work on it, we sit together with him and the analysts and show him how we want to play him in this position or that position. It is work to do but there is no rush and that’s how it is. It is really good that he is here, but as always it would have been better – and next year it will be like this – that if a new player comes in, he is in for the season. Maybe not for the pre-season, which would be ever better, but for when the season starts. Now we are really in this three-games-a-week rhythm and in the international break he is with the national team, so it is not easy but it takes time and that’s all. We will not wait for the next two or three years. It’s all good and already on the weekend he came on in a difficult situation, it was pressure and we wanted, and tried, to do something without giving him too many opportunities. We took a lot of risks in this game, he was involved in it and did really well.

Leicester City v LiverpoolLeicester City v Liverpool Leicester City v Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will make his first start for the club in the Carabao Cup tie at Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's side have been finalists and semi-finalists in the last two seasons, but Champions League commitments mean that the Reds boss will make a host of changes for the trip to the King Power Stadium, which is live on Sky Sports Football.

Team news

Jamie Vardy is a major doubt for Leicester ahead of their Carabao Cup clash against Liverpool. The striker has a groin problem following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Huddersfield while Matty James (Achilles), Robert Huth (ankle) and Christian Fuchs (eye) are out.

Adrien Silva remains sidelined after FIFA blocked his £22million transfer from Sporting Lisbon because his documentation was received 14 seconds after the deadline. Leicester are finalising an appeal.

Huddersfield 1-1 Leicester

Oxlade-Chamberlain will be joined in the Liverpool team by third-choice goalkeeper Danny Ward and fellow midfielder Marko Grujic.

Striker Dominic Solanke is also set to be involved and Sadio Mane sits out the second game of his three-match ban.

Opta stats

These two sides have met just once in the League Cup, with Liverpool beating Leicester 4-1 in the third round en route to the final in 1987.

The Foxes have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 12 League Cup games, last recording a shutout in August 2012 against Torquay in a 4-0 win.

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Liverpool have progressed past the third round in each of the last three seasons, reaching the semi-finals twice and final in 2016.

The Reds have only managed to win one of their last five League Cup encounters against Premier League opposition (D1 L3), losing both semi-final legs against Southampton last season.

Leicester have seen 37 goals in their last seven League Cup contests against Premier League opponents - scoring 15 but conceding 22.

Charlie Nicholas' prediction

When I was looking at my Super 6 selections, this is the one that stood out at me as a potential upset. Leicester have had a tough start but have been playing well and Jamie Vardy should have scored a winner at Huddersfield, but he missed a sitter.

I covered Liverpool at the weekend and I was baffled by Jurgen Klopp's seven changes. They looked defensively vulnerable again and could have lost the game when Ben Mee went agonisingly close in the dying stages. Other than Liverpool's reputation, I really don't see this as an upset, especially as I'm inclined to think they will make another six or seven changes, with Ben Woodburn and the other young guys coming in.

This is a good time for Kelechi Iheanacho to come good. He's in danger of being the next Saido Berahino in terms of just going through the motions and needs to seize his chance in games like this.

Charlie predicts: Leicester to win 2-1 and Iheanacho to score first (35/1 with Sky Bet)

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are not worried by the strong form of Manchester United and Manchester City

Jurgen Klopp insists strong starts to the season by Manchester United and Manchester City have not placed added pressure on Liverpool.

Liverpool were held to 1-1 draw by Burnley on Saturday, leaving them eighth in the Premier League table, five points behind the Manchester duo, who both won in emphatic fashion.

Leicester vs Liverpool

September 19, 2017, 7:30pm

Live on

Liverpool's attention now turns to the Carabao Cup, where they face Leicester City in the third round on Tuesday night, live on Sky Sports Football.

It represents a good chance for the Reds to capture their first trophy since 2012 and it is one Klopp is keen to seize.

The German said: "I don't feel pressure, I feel opportunity. I feel the chance to do something really good. I see the opportunity to win a very, very interesting cup competition.

Highlights: Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

"I probably have pressure, yes, but it cannot be bigger than the pressure that I put on myself and I am used to that.

"I watch the games of United and City because it is interesting to see but it is not my job to count points in this moment and say 'okay, now they have this lead'. They are obviously in good shape at the moment.

"That is how it is but a season is sometimes like this. As long as you are really focused, as long as you are ready, as long as your attitude is 100 per cent, as long as you are greedy, you don't have to look at other teams.

"Only when you play against them then you have to look at them. All the rest you have no influence so ignore it."

Klopp is set to make changes to his team for the visit to the King Power Stadium, with Danny Ward set to start in goal, while Marko Grujic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also set to come into the side.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has yet to start since joining from Arsenal, though he was introduced as a 79th-minute substitute against Burnley, and Klopp admits he is trying gradually ease him in.

Klopp says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain needs time to settle in at Liverpool

"We are working on it. We are obviously together with him and the analysts to show him how we want to play him in this position and in that position," Klopp said.

"So there is work to do but there is no rush. That is how it is but it is really good that he is here.

"Of course it is always better - and next year it will be like this - if a new player comes in for the [start of] the season at least, if not for the preseason. That would be even better.

"When the season starts, now we are really in this three-games-per-week rhythm and during the international break he was with the national team. So it is not easy and it takes time.

"But already at the weekend, he came on in a difficult situation and he did really well."

Video: Jurgen Klopp pre-match press conference – Leicester City vs. Liverpool

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 18/09/2017 - 16:12

He also suggested Dominic Solanke could make his full debut for the club, praising the young striker’s contribution when called upon this season so far.

“It’s exciting, absolutely exciting. I’m really happy to have him around, wonderful kid,” he said, “he takes the minutes, each minute as an opportunity.”

Klopp went on to discuss the adjustment of Oxlade-Chamberlain in training, and provided a positive fitness update on sidelined duo Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana.

“Clyney, yesterday, had [his] third or fourth run outside, not the highest intensity but a big step, [and he has] coped well so far with this,” he said.

“Adam is close to going outside and running. Next step, I’ll give you another update in the next press conference!”

After Tuesday’s clash, Liverpool will return to take on Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday.

Klopp on Solanke: He's full of joy and quality

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 18/09/2017 - 15:54

Jürgen Klopp has praised Dominic Solanke's short cameo against Burnley on Saturday, describing the young striker's showing as 'full of joy and quality'.

The 20-year-old came agonisingly close to earning the Reds all three points as he hit the bar in the final five minutes of a frustrating 1-1 draw - missing out on a goal his all-action performance arguably merited.

Regardless of that near-miss, Klopp was pleased with Solanke's contribution from the bench and says he is excited by the potential the Englishman has shown in the early stages of his Anfield career.

"It's exciting, absolutely exciting. I'm really happy to have him around. He's a wonderful kid, that's how it is," the manager told reporters.

"He takes the minutes - each minute - as an opportunity. That's the benefit of [his] age.

"When you are this age and you didn't play so often in the Premier League then it's a Premier League game in the stats, whether it's one minute, two minutes, it's five, it's 20. He doesn't care too much about this. 

"You can see this, he's full of joy and quality, it was nice to see."

Jurgen Klopp provides positive injury update on Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 18/09/2017 - 15:53

ADVERTISING

Liverpool duo Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana are on the road to recovery after long-term injury problems, Jurgen Klopp has revealed.


Neither Clyne (back) or Lallana (thigh) have featured for the Reds this season so far, with the former making just one appearance during pre-season.

Lallana was sidelined after the Audi Cup clash with Atletico Madrid in Munich, with Klopp confirming that the midfielder would be out for “a couple of months.”

A month into the season, and both players are continuing their rehabilitation at Melwood, and speaking at Liverpool’s training ground on Monday, Klopp was positive on their progress.

“Clyney, yesterday, had [his] third or fourth run outside, not the highest intensity but a big step, [and he has] coped well so far with this,” he said.

“Adam is close to going outside and running. Next step, I’ll give you another update in the next press conference!”

Klopp also confirmed that Danny Ings “trains completely normally,” with the striker likely to turn out for the Liverpool U23s against West Ham on Monday night.

Dejan Lovren is Klopp’s only other fitness concern heading into Tuesday’s League Cup clash with Leicester City, with the Croatian missing Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley due to a back injury.

But the 50-year-old expects Lovren to return to the fold at the King Power Stadium, and he could come straight back into the starting lineup.

“Dejan should be OK for tomorrow, but we will see,” he continued.

“If we can leave him out today it’s pretty likely he will be ready for tomorrow.”

If Lovren is unable to take part, however, Joe Gomez is likely to start at centre-back, with Jon Flanagan among those considered for the right-back berth.

“Dejan obviously didn’t play, now we have to see how we can line up at centre-half,” he added.

“Then is Joe at centre-half or full-back? We will see how we can do this, but [Flanagan] is in the mix for tomorrow for sure.”

Klopp has already confirmed that Danny Ward, Marko Grujic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all start against the Foxes, with Dominic Solanke also in line for his full debut for the Reds.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Ward are set to start for Liverpool in Tuesday's Carabao Cup tie with Leicester City, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed.

Deadline-day signing Oxlade-Chamberlain has made three substitute appearances for the Reds to date but is in line to be named in Klopp's XI for tomorrow's third-round clash.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for Alex. He had a wonderful impact in the last game," Klopp told his pre-match press conference on Monday.

Klopp also announced that goalkeeper Ward - who has not played in a competitive fixture for Liverpool since May 2016 having spent last season on loan with Huddersfield Town - and Marko Grujic are set to feature in his team at the King Power Stadium.

Dejan Lovren is expected to be fit after missing Saturday's game against Burnley with a back problem, while Jon Flanagan will be included in the Reds' squad for trip to the Midlands.
