Jurgen Klopp has no doubts about Keita value to Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has no doubts about Keita value to Liverpool

"We don't let one defeat ruin our season".

ALEXANDER-ARNOLD has claimed Liverpool will take inspiration from Manchester City in their quest to win their first-ever Premier League title.

"Yes, we lost 2-1, but if you look at the game nobody would be surprised if it would have been a draw".

Liverpool assistant Peter Krawietz has admitted that would prefer to end the fans' wait for a league title over winning the Champions League this season.

Liverpool faced Merseyside rivals Everton at this stage of the competition last season and that probably guaranteed that Klopp would name a strong starting line-up, but the Reds also lined-up very strong in the fourth round at home to West Brom.

Pep Guardiola has already started the mind games by questioning whether Liverpool have the bottle to win their first league title since 1990.

There's a bet I really like ahead of this game, and it's the straightforward Liverpool win at a scarcely believable [2.04].

Guardiola said: "Losing to Liverpool we would have been nearly out and we played knowing we were in or we were out".

"We made a change around the PSG game, I don't know when exactly, and the boys have to deal with it".

Taking about the hurtful loss, Alexander-Arnold said: "Every defeat hurts, but losing to City is really hard because we've been on such a long unbeaten run".

The centre-back was forced from the field after just six minutes of the third-round encounter at Molineux, with the Reds needing to call upon 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever to replace him. "Everything is fine. I am completely happy with Naby", said the Liverpool boss.

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. Welcome to our Monday night football blog. 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'.
