Stats reveal which players Jurgen Klopp must target in January


The 18-time English champions have drawn their last two Premier League games to see their prolific run of form come to an abrupt end.

"But to be honest against West Brom we didn't deserve any luck".

"The second half we changed the system two or three times".

Klopp revealed that Can could still sign a new deal with Liverpool but also accepted the fact he could also sign for another side in January.

Klopp agreed he changed tactics during the game and it might have affected the dynamics, but saw chances of winning.

"I don't think it had anything to do with rotation".

Klopp confirmed that Simon Mignolet will return to the starting line-up against the Cherries but ruled both Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne out of the match.

An Amazing Pep Guardiola Stat Emerges After City Beat Swansea 4-0
Guardiola goes with Ederson between the sticks, while in defence he selects Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi as centre-backs. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola ruled out any chance of complacency from his side as they set a Premier League record.

Karius is Klopp's designated goalkeeper for the Champions League but with the competition now in a two-month hiatus the 24-year-old faced the prospect of playing only in the FA Cup before February's resumption. That's it. It was not a good game but we haven't had a lot of bad games in the last few weeks. It was hard but I think only one time Loris Karius had to make a save - an important one.

But he says he has had no guarantees from Klopp that he will keep his place for the visit to Bournemouth. As long as we don't get the information that he's signed for another club. there's nothing to say about it. "Of course, I want to play every game and my favourite option would be to play again Sunday".

He added: "It is always a battle, doesn't matter in which club or which position". The manager has trust in me otherwise he wouldn't have thrown me in. If you don't perform well, even when you start, you might lose your spot in any position so you have to perform and the rest is up to the manager.

"Salah has been excellent this season, but it's not just him, that's the problem when you play these teams", he said.

"I have to show in training I am ready for the upcoming games and then he is the one who picks".

"We have to make sure we have as fit as possible players for the specific game", the Liverpool boss said ahead of Sunday's trip to Bournemouth.
