Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Jur­gen Klopp has wel­comed an in­ter­lude from the crowded fix­ture list as Liver­pool get a full week to pre­pare for their next as­sign­ment.

Their early exit from the Carabao Cup means they will not be in mid­week ac­tion this week, as Arse­nal await on Satur­day and the Reds could travel to the Emi­rates Sta­dium as Pre­mier League lead­ers af­ter brush­ing aside Cardiff 4-1 to go three points clear of Manch­ester City, who visit Tot­ten­ham on Mon­day.

Klopp said: “We won the game and that’s re­ally good and for us it’s just the next step.

“Now we have time to re­cover which is the first time for a lot of the boys and they don’t play in three days again.”
