No pressure to win trophies at Liverpool FC, says Klopp

He played all the games for Arsenal from the beginning and now he comes here and is on the bench so it looks "Oh, not the best decision" but it is long-term thing.

Thankfully for Shakespeare, Liverpool's forward line failed to break the deadlock - and he went in at half-time with the opportunity to switch things up.

Liverpool's bad run began with a 5-0 thumping away at Manchester City, before a frustrating draw with Sevilla in the Europa League and a draw at home to Burnley in the English top flight.

Liverpool can now turn the mood around with the same fixture coming up twice in just a few days.

Liverpool crashed out of the Carabao Cup at the first hurdle as goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani put Leicester City through 2-0 on Tuesday.

Now, it is obvious that Liverpool has serious defensive issues, considering that they have already conceded nine goals in their opening five Premier League games this season and rock-bottom Crystal Palace have only conceded eight in comparison.

It would be a huge surprise were Liverpool not to heavily rotate for the Carabao Cup fixture tomorrow night.

Summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to make his first start for Liverpool tonight. "I am sure they didn't always play with three at the back and with wing-backs and so Alex played in different positions when he was there". "For the next step, I'll give you another update in the next press conference!"

The Liverpool boss also confirmed some of the players that will appear for Liverpool against Leicester: Goalkeeper Danny Ward, Marko Grujic and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"I would love to but I'm not sure if the world is ready for such a insane decision".

"It is a fantastic opportunity for Alex because since he has been (here) it has been hard to train on different things because of game after game after game", Klopp said at his pre-match press conference on Monday. "He's at a ideal age and is still able to make big steps".

In a rare Leicester attack, Demarai Gray skipped around Jon Flanagan, who was making his first Liverpool appearance in 16 months, before normal service resumed.

With Clyne absent, youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez have both started several games at right-back - although Gomez could start at centre-back against the Foxes, dependent on Lovren's fitness.
