Pre-Match Conference Highlights

Liverpool completed nine matches this month by defeating rivals Everton in the league last Wednesday, and will depend on a young squad in the League Cup on December 17, while the first team players will be in Qatar to participate in the Club World cup the next day.

Jürgen Klopp said his players are smart enough to understand the need to apply the rotation policy, as the Premier League leaders face a busy period in all competitions.

"At the moment we need a smart line-up. People with good thinking, at least," Klopp told reporters before visiting Bournemouth in the league on Saturday.

"The players must understand these things without us telling them," he said. "Thank Godt we have that."

"I do not expect perfect performance on the field, but I expect passion. It is not complicated. We need players to understand our position because I do not make sudden decisions and there are always reasons,"

In front of Everton, Klopp, whose team is eight points ahead of second-placed Leicester City, made 5 changes to the squad that won last Saturday.

"There is no time for rest, so we try to rest some players, while others have to play,"

Striker Divock Origi, who replaced Roberto Firmino, scored two goals against Everton, and Klopp praised the impressive performance of the Belgian player, and described him as "Extreamly Important" to the team.

The Predicted line-up is as follow:


Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson

Milner, Henderson, Chamberlain

Salah, Firmino, Keita
