Jurgen Klopp confirms he will rotate squad against Exeter in FA Cup


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he will deploy a number of young players in today's FA Cup third round game at Exeter.

The Reds are without a number of key players with midfielder Philippe Coutinho expected to be on the sidelines at least until the end of January after picking up a hamstring injury in the League Cup win against Stoke.

The Brazilian is the sixth Liverpool player to suffer a hamstring injury this season with Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel, Jordan Rossiter, Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge also picking up a similar type of injury.

"I think that's the thing [rotate] we have to do now," Klopp said.

"We have to take the situation like it is and we'll go to Exeter. I will be there for sure! I will take a few players with me!

"The FA Cup is a great tournament, we know about it, but we have to make the decisions for the Liverpool team, for my team, and so we have to make changes. That's all I can say because at this moment I don't know who is available.

"We will train with the team that will play tomorrow and then we will see what happens, but of course we'll make changes.

"I think the first thing [to do in January] is we take back our own players, that's normal – especially if they don't have a perfect situation at the clubs where they are on loan – as these are our players and we have a situation.

"It's a big chance for the boys.

"But there's no pressure because they're still young. If they do well they can quickly take the next step, but if not they have time. That's the big – and good – thing when you're young. That's what we'll tell them - we want to work with them and we'll see what happens."
