Klopp calls on Liverpool to ease supporters' nerves

Klopp calls on Liverpool to ease supporters' nerves

"It's a blow for the boy and for us, because prior to the injury he was in such fantastic shape", manager Jurgen Klopp said. Their quest for a sixth European Cup then resumes on 19 February when Bayern Munich visit Anfield in the last 16 of the Champions League. Now we are still in the Champions League and I am very happy about a very hard game.

"(They have the) most experienced manager in the Premier League at the moment, really good football team, good signings in defence, experience in the full-back positions.

"We keep working hard in training and it's very important to take that work into the game".

"No timescale will be placed on an expected return date for Gomez, though it's likely he will feature again this season".

Dejan Lovren is expected to partner Virgil van Dijk at centre-back for the London Stadium trip. Captain Jordan Henderson, who filled in at full-back in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City, has been unable to train fully recently due to a calf injury.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the club didn't break any Premier League rules with their actions, with a perhaps neglect for sportsmanship their only crime.

With regular right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold out injured, Klopp was questioned about his decision to allow Nathaniel Clyne to join Bournemouth on loan at the start of the January transfer window but the German said he had no regrets.

"After the Newcastle game everybody was convinced, myself too, that Liverpool were going to beat Leicester and it would be seven points and it would be nearly over".

"After that if we can give a hand to Manchester City, it's not our problem, but of course I am a fan of Manchester City also". Their last home game saw them defeat Arsenal 1-0 thanks to Declan Rice's first league goal of his Hammers career. Probably. We are still in the race and if we dropped points or whatever, then it's still a point against Leicester. Let's carry on again. So that's the season. We can not change that. We will see exactly how we do it. When I say it will be five months, there is a big fuss, and if I say it will be five days, everyone thinks it's not that bad.
