Klopp’s deep­en­ing pool of tal­ent

Liver­pool have the strength in depth to de­liver sil­ver­ware to An­field this sea­son.

Jur­gen Klopp made five changes to the side that had been forced to knuckle down and fight their way to vic­tory at Burn­ley last week and it was im­pos­si­ble to see the join. Of course it helps when two of those play­ers com­ing back into the line-up are Mo­hamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, but the strength and re­silience the Reds showed to play their way through a test­ing open­ing pe­riod be­fore mov­ing through the gears in the se­cond half sug­gested this was a group of play­ers col­lec­tively hit­ting their stride.

Klopp ad­mit­ted he had no idea what his team will be against Napoli to­mor­row af­ter two games in quick suc­ces­sion but he can select from a po­si­tion of strength with op­tions avail­able to him in all the key ar­eas of the pitch. Manch­ester City’s squad may still look the more com­plete, but Klopp is en­ti­tled to be­lieve his group of play­ers is ca­pa­ble of push­ing Pep Guardi­ola’s men all the way.
