Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seemed less concerned when asked about taking a break from Premier League action to play in the FA Cup.

The Reds travel to the Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday, on the back of their 2–1 loss to Manchester City in the league last Thursday.

Speaking about the lack of opportunity to get an immediate response to the City loss in the league, Klopp said, according to the club’s official website:

“I don’t think about things I can’t change too much.”

“I don’t know, it’s OK, it’s like it is, we’ve known it for a while, so it’s not that I feel we have to react immediately in the league because that would feel a little bit like we are insecure about ourselves. We don’t know exactly how it will happen.”

Virgil van Dijk makes the art of defending look easy, according to former Liverpool forward Luis Garcia. The Dutch defender has been in top form for...

“When the draw came up and we saw Wolves it was like, ‘wow, thank you very much’ and it’s away. Then we played there and it was really difficult. Now we have to go there again and so it’s a really tough draw and nobody was looking forward to it and saying at the moment of the draw, ‘nice game, let’s go there and win’.”

“We have Brighton to come after and it is always a tough place to go, they’ve had a fantastic season. Do I want play Brighton directly after Man City? I don’t know, I didn’t think about it.”

“We have now between the Premier League games nine days or so, and in between is a very, very tough FA Cup game. I didn’t think about it, it’s OK like it is.”
