Jurgen Klopp explains Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri absence in starting lineup

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has explained why Adam Lallana starts against Burnley, while Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri are again benched.

“We had a complete training week and actually that’s how it is.” Klopp told BT Sports (via LiverpoolECHO)

“If you have five sessions a week, everybody can show up and Adam was exceptional during the week. So, in a situation where you think a little bit how you can adjust one or two things, it’s smart.

“He trained well for a while already but this week was especially well – that’s the reason why he starts.”

Liverpool – Burnley to start at 12:00 (UK TIme).
