Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he’s facing suspension and injuries to players ahead of the visit of Everton.
The Reds go into Sunday’s Merseyside derby on the back of a 2-1 loss to French champions, Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
Klopp has some selection headache to deal with, particularly in the middle of the park, with Jordan Henderson suspended and his side’s lack of creativity in midfield particularly obvious.
Ahead of a busy run of fixtures in December, the former Borussia Dortmund manager also hopes his team will have some luck.
“If we stay fit and we can choose to rest players that would be great. If not, we will struggle a little bit,” Klopp said, according to FourFourTwo.
“December, January, you need to be a little bit lucky with injuries. That’s how it is. Then you can build on it in February and so on.”
“You always have a few problems but that doesn’t mean anything. It would just be cool if we came through with the right results and a fully fit squad.”
Liverpool can reduce the gap between them and league leaders Manchester City back to two points with a win on Sunday.
