Klopp wowed by Sarri’s Chelsea start: "biggest change I ever saw"

GETTY Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp has made minimal changes this season

Liverpool are now two points ahead of both Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League table. We are Chelsea and want to try to win all our games and we will take it seriously.

Jurgen Klopp has already hinted at the rotations ahead of the rush of fixtures and this could see Reds' backup goalkeeper for Alisson, Simon Mignolet to make the first team against the Blues on Wednesday. Tomorrow night's a football game in a sold-out Anfield, so we will be there with all we have.

He coughed up £75m to sign Virgil van Dijk in January - breaking the club's transfer record.

The Brazilian's only appearance for Liverpool arrived when he came on as an injury-time substitute during last week's win over Paris Saint-Germain, although Klopp has reiterated that the Brazilian has needed time to adjust to his tactical concepts. "We are trying to have him at the end of the week, but I don't know at the moment".

"It is a completely different competition and a coincidence that we play them again in a few days". That said, given their start this season and two consecutive fourth-place finishes, Klopp probably won't finish eighth in the Premier League like Dalglish did, and this is what sealed the legendary Scotsman's fate. You can get unlucky on a couple of nights, or you can get very lucky on a couple of nights. It's about positioning; it's about reaction, about spaces defensively, closing them, offensively using them.

Jorginho has played every game so far and with their countries success at the World Cup, N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic have played a lot of football recently. "I am really happy to give him the opportunity, that's all". Seven wins in a row has cushioned what was being deemed a "nightmare" month, with hard opponents in future Premier League and Champions Leagues fixtures. It's always different. But it will happen because it's not really hard. "It's a normal game, people are coming to the stadium, so what you need is all there, so let's exactly do it like that".

Star players can put you in the mix but it is the overall strength of the playing staff that puts you on top. "We work longer together".

"I have to make decisions and I will make decisions and it will be a really strong side". "That's it, nothing else".
