Jurgen Klopp Confirms Yet Another Liverpool Goalkeeper Change For League Cup Clash

Share

'I'm not sure the world is ready for such a insane decision, a third goalkeeper in one season!

"I see an opportunity to win a cup competition".

With Simon Mignolet first choice in the league and Loris Karius the pick to start in the Champions League, Liverpool have already shown a willingness to rotate their goalkeepers this season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool from Arsenal for £35m on transfer deadline day and made his first appearance for the Reds on 9 September, coming off the bench in a 5-0 defeat by Manchester City.

"Already on the weekend he came on in a hard situation, there was pressure and we tried to do something without giving up too many opportunities".

Despite how unusual a decision it might seem-handing a third-string shot stopper domestic cup duties-in Liverpool's case it seems obvious and necessary given Klopp blocked the permanent sale of Ward to Huddersfield over the summer. It's a fantastic opportunity now for Alex. I had a great pre-season, felt really good and I'm looking forward to the future to be honest with you.

"We have to take the criticism and the blame". I don't care how people see it.

"They are obviously in a good shape and moment, but a season is sometimes like this".

Klopp also provided an update on the fitness of Nathaniel Clyne and he says the right-back is now doing light training outside as he steps-up his recovery from injury.

"Clyney had the third or fourth run outside yesterday, not the highest intensity but a big step and he coped well so far with this", the Liverpool manager said.

"When we don't score the first goal it is like this [pressure] and you can feel it in the stadium", he said.
