Liverpool boss Klopp on Ki-Jana Hoever

Liverpool boss Klopp on Ki-Jana Hoever

Liverpool have largely utilised the same selection of 14 or so players across the Christmas and New Year period, meaning the boss will look to make changes for the FA Cup third round at Wolves on Monday night.

"If not, we have to be creative-we'll see what we do". Wolves drew 0-0 at home to struggling Swansea before losing the replay 2-1, again without their star players.

Wolves can be backed at [4.0] to win (the Draw is [3.7]) but with Santo expected to leave some of his big names out then it would be a stretch for me to have any more confidence about the away victory. Now he was in and still is in, it's just a joy to watch him.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has said that he has no doubts about the quality of midfielder Naby Keita who cost the club £52mil to sign from Redbull Leipzig. I said already two [Simon Mignolet and Alberto Moreno], so you can make of it what you want. That's clear. We came through the intense period now somehow OK, but of course we have to make changes.

The German manager hinted that Adam Lallana may be close to returning from another injury lay-off but that the club were keen not to rush him back into service. Joe and Joel look good - obviously not good enough for Monday, not good enough I would say for the game after that, for Brighton, [but] hopefully then they are at least in full team training'. But there are still a few days to go until we can have them in team training, until Joël is ready for contact, which for a centre-half is pretty important. "He is really, really good".

Guardiola said: "I don't know how far we are going to be because maybe (players) not playing the Carabao Cup will be easier for our recovery". It's really cool..."It's a nice prospect for the next months and years". On in his place was Liverpool's youngest ever FA Cup players, 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever, who would not have been expecting quite the early start when he was named on the bench today.

After all, pundits are always suggesting that once you've got the monkey off your back after winning your first trophy, more usually tend to follow. It was the first one in the league but we lost three or four games before [this season], so no special thing.
