Double Liverpool injury update as Diogo Jota earns praise and Jürgen Klopp confirms new contract

Klopp on the fixture pile-up…

“Players’ welfare is important but we’re used to a tough schedule. I don’t think we need to make too many changes at the start of December. Maybe the middle or the end but it’s about constant conversations with the medical and fitness department. We use all our data for the line-up to give us a chance to win the next football game. Wolves played Wednesday as well so we’ll see about the line-up but I am not expecting seven or eight changes for this game. A big compliment to Bruno Lage there, it was not so easy after a long time with Nuno there. Everything was settled and happy there.

The fixture schedule is intense for everyone, and the teams at the top have an advantage in terms of their larger squads. Liverpool have had a few injury troubles, but nothing compared to some of the smaller sides. It will be intense, but the Reds are better placed than most to cope.

On Wolves under Bruno Lage…

“Wolves had a clear way of playing and Lage changed it in a good direction. A real football side with a good idea. Similar system defending, everyone is involved. When we had a closer look at Jota, the running numbers were incredible, so the offensive players do the same. They have a proper midfield, Raúl Jiménez up front and I am really happy he overcome the misery of the awful [skull fracture]. Hopefully, he will score lots of goals, apart from Saturday. They’re a really good team. They don’t concede shots on goal. We need to be creative.”

Wolves are a good side, but after a week in which they have already had two games (something they are not used to), Liverpool should have an advantage. Lage also has a few injury problems to get over, while Liverpool have a few players back. The Reds should be able to get a result

On the December schedule…

“It’s crazy. December will always be crazy. Everything is fine until you reach Christmas. 26/28th still not right to play. We accept that we play, it’s tradition but it’s really tough. January is not any better, because the more successful we are in cups, it’s the same. So there is a difficult two months ahead. Only thing is all teams are the same. We have more games because of cups and the Champions League, so we fight through this period, be smart. In the end, it’s just 95 mins every three days. I know it’s super intense, not easy, but it’s doable, so that’s what we try to do. We have to be smart and try and recover as much as possible.”

Liverpool will have to make changes throughout the month, but if they keep scoring as they are, that can help. If you are a couple of goals ahead in a game, and are in control, you can take your foot off the gas a little and rest in-game. Having that scenario available would be ideal over the next few weeks.

Other Top Football News:

On the ‘title race’…

“I can’t see it already as a title race. It’s not as if I watch Man City or Chelsea games and think ‘It would be good if they lose’. Most of the time I don’t even know! We cannot win the league in November or December, but we can lose it maybe. We have to be up there and that means we have to chase everybody. It is a challenge. But it is exciting.”

Klopp might not be watching other games and hoping Man City and Chelsea drop points, but Liverpool fans certainly are. The Reds themselves, though, can only win their own games and hope that is enough.

On Diogo Jota…

“He is an incredible package. He is really smart and really organised. He is structured in a really nice way. If you look at where he started, going then to Wolves, I thought he could be a player for me because of how intense he is. All the players are technically incredible but he makes a difference with his attitude. He didn’t score an awful lot of goals but Wolves had the most unbelievably intense wingers, and that takes a lot of energy. For us, it was clear he would make the next steps with us.”

Facing his former club this weekend, Diogo Jota is in fine form at the moment. The Portugal international will fancy his chances of scoring against his ex-employers.

On Mohamed Salah being ‘selfish’…

“We didn’t have a specific talk about it, it wasn’t necessary. Salah was never criticised for being too selfish by us. What helps a lot is experience, so you know what to do in situations and areas of the pitch. What helps is Mo has the experience, not lost the greed to score but developed technically. He sees others in better areas. He is calm enough and developed technically again, so he has more time to see the right things to pass the ball.”

Salah being ‘selfish’ was a myth that was talked about a lot for a while, but no more. Salah has taken his game to another level this season, but in the past, he was still passing to team-mates when he needed to. The idea that he never passed was not entirely accurate — and he would still shoot now if that was an option!

On injuries…

“Joe Gomez and Naby Keïta didn’t do the full session but they looked brilliant. They will use the next few days to do what they need to do. After this weekend they should be in contention again.”

The more options available for Liverpool, the better. It looks like both could make their comeback against AC Milan on Tuesday.JAMB Result
