Jurgen Klopp to assess squad ahead Manchester City game: We will not take any risks


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he will assess his squad this morning before deciding who will start against Manchester City.

The two teams face again days after the Citizens lifted the Capital One Cup after a dramatic penalty shoot out at Wembley.

The German is expected to make changes to his squad but confirmed that he will pick the best possible line-up.

"We don't want to go and risk tomorrow, but who is available is available and then we have to make the choice," Klopp said.

"You [the journalists] have to wait a few more hours, I have to wait a few more hours and then we will know more – and then you will see the line-up tomorrow.

"I know it's a very important game for them and it's a very important game for us, so it's not that the game is not too important, it's about thinking 'Can I bring in another [player] that is 100 per cent fit?'

"That's the same as what we are doing. We don't make changes to say, 'Come on, it's Man City, you can lose' or that it's more important how we play against Crystal Palace or something. We cannot do this and we won't do this.

"It is all about who is fit enough to go into this really intensive game for both sides.

"We will pick the best line-up we can."
