Klopp Mulls Changes For Leicester Trip

Klopp Mulls Changes For Leicester Trip

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no new injury worries for Saturday’s trip to Leicester but has hinted he could make changes. Klopp has so far named the same starting XI for all three Premier League games this season as the Reds have begun the campaign with nine points from nine.

Liverpool could again be unchanged for the early clash on Saturday although the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Jordan Henderson are pushing to start.

Dejan Lovren remains out with a abdominal strain and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to miss the whole season with a knee injury.

Klopp says it’s unusual to keep the same side for several games in a row and he could freshen the side up against the Foxes.

“Today is good but it needs to stay good. We have started three times in a row with the same line-up – that won’t be possible too often in the future,” he told reporters.

“The players are in a much better situation now than three weeks ago. We need a good result tomorrow and in all the other games. For that, we need all the players. I’m looking forward to it.”

Klopp wants his side to head into the international break with a perfect 12 points from 12 but is well aware Leicester, who have won two out of three so far, will be a tough test.

He added: “It would be fantastic if we get to 12, but we’re not going for 12 v Leicester. We are going for three. We will try to win, for that we need to be ready for a fight.

“Leicester really have a good side. They have looked really good in the first three games. You can see Claude (Puel’s) work is now paying off at Leicester. They have changed the style a bit. It is good football they are playing and are full of confidence, especially after the last result (against Southampton).”
