'That's not cool' - Liverpool injuries worry Klopp


It was current Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti who in charges of Los Blancos when Rodriguez was signed from AS Monaco back in 2014, while the pair also worked together at Bayern Munich.

"Some things I can decide by myself, and some things the medical department will tell me".

He added: "I know that in your job you want me to talk about the transfer market but honestly I would like to talk about the game and the derby - the fantastic challenge that we have, the fantastic opportunity".

On the cusp of captaining Liverpool to a first league win in 30 years, Jordan Henderson is finally receiving the recognition he deserves, according to his teammate Adam Lallana.

"We will have fresh legs and what we need is support". We throw football at the people.

With numerous pundits claiming that Liverpool's capabilities may well see them retain their Champions League trophy in the process, the central involvement of Henderson in Jurgen Klopp's side demonstrates a resilience that was not found wanting when Brendan Rodgers attempted to move the English midfielder on during his tenure in charge.

The loss of Keita is a blow for Klopp as it reduces his options for a midfield which has already carried a heavy workload over 33 games already this season.

With Minamino not eligible to make his debut until the FA Cup meeting with Everton on Sunday, Klopp says he is down to 13 senior outfield players for the match against the Blades.

"We signed the player he was at Salzburg, so that means he doesn't have to change in the moment, just be who you are. I don't know exactly what it is or how long it will take, but I can say already he will not be ready for Sunday".

Liverpool were grateful, therefore, that an early goal from Mohamed Salah and one from Sadio Mane midway through the second half meant they did not have to over-exert themselves against Sheffield United.

"I'd like to be a new player in that group as they are really welcoming with open arms, it's really nice and he felt that".

"From our point of view I was disappointed because I didn't think we laid a glove on them".

"I didn't think about (transfers) until now", Ancelotti said.

"I thought Dean Henderson (the goalkeeper) was the difference between it being three, four or five".

"You can not defend for 90 minutes and we do not want to defend for 90 minutes".
