Liverpool Confirm Double Injury Boost But Duo To Miss Chelsea Tie

Liverpool Confirm Double Injury Boost But Duo To Miss Chelsea Tie

Jurgen Klopp, still searching for his first silverware as Liverpool boss, intends to shuffle the pack tomorrow night but not too violently.

In truth, Origi would have been highly unlikely to be included in the squad for the game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening but he would have been in consideration for the Carabao Cup game at Anfield on Wednesday night. We could do without further midweek games.

After playing through injury in the World Cup the center back has not featured for the Reds this season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for his attitude after failing to secure a move away in the summer, and confirmed he will start against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Alisson, despite his error against Leicester, already looks like a significant upgrade in goal over either Loris Karius or Simon Mignolet, while Klopp is now perming three from James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and, slightly suprisingly, Xherdan Shaqiri in midfield-and that's despite having lost Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the season to a knee injury.

At his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Klopp said when asked about Sarri: "It is the biggest change of system I ever saw in such a short period of time. Wow". After all, Carlo Ancelotti's side does not look quite as ferocious as Sarri's Napoli did last season, and, in the group stage, particularly after the opening win over PSG, there is perhaps a little room to maneuver.

"I have to make decisions and I will make decisions and it will be a really strong side".

"It will be a very good side that we will line up tomorrow".

"We have a lot of good players who can play in the starting XI", Giroud said after Chelsea's 0-0 draw at London Stadium.

"One change I have already confirmed, so it can not be nil changes, and it will for sure not be 11". It's coincidence we play them a few days later again. We've shown that, especially in my first season.

Now, pundit Andy Gray - who played for both Everton and Wolves - has told BeIN Sports that he thinks more teams should be focusing on the League Cup, and wants to see both Everton and Wolves field strong teams in an attempt to win the trophy.
