The war of words between Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp and his Sunderland counterpart ,Sam Allardyce seems unending with the Liverpool boss on Thursday believing 'Big Sam' have "too much time" to talk about what is going on at Liverpool.
Allardyce recently claimed that Klopp is responsible for Liverpool's injury problems because of his demand for high-tempo pressing.
Liverpool currently have eight first-team players out of action, and Allardyce has suggested that Klopp underestimated the "ferocity" of the Premier League.
While responding to Allardyce's claims, Klopp told reporters: "I knew about the Premier League. It's not a problem. Maybe he has too much time to think about Liverpool problems.
"I don't have time to think about this. We know about our situation, but we have to react and that is what we try to do."
Midfielder Philippe Coutinho is facing a significant spell on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in Tuesday's 1-0 win over Stoke City and alongside Dejan Lovren has been ruled out of the team's FA Cup 3rd Round clash against Exeter on Friday as well as the Premier League clash against Manchester United.
Liverpool also have Divock Origi and Martin Skyrtel on the sidelines.
