Liverpool take on Bournemouth at Bean Court at 12:30pm tomorrow and a victory would see them leapfrog Manchester City into first.
Ahead of the game, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken out to the press.
City won’t feel the heat if we win
I don’t think City feel any pressure. The first target is to perform at the highest level against Bournemouth. Bournemouth are in a good moment. It was always really hard work for the opponent. They are full of confidence. To be first in the table would be nice but it would probably only last a few hours.
Sturridge no cheat
Daniel Sturridge is not a cheat. I’m not sure whether he (Dyche) spoke about the challenge of Bardsley on Moreno. What can I say? Sometimes a striker expects a tackle and tries to avoid it by jumping.
Alisson’s role in Burnley win
Alisson played a big, big part in the game. Burnley’s goal should have been disallowed. It was offside and both hands on the ball. At 2-1 up he made a brilliant save
Expect squad rotation
We needed fresh legs at Turf Moor. And we will need to do that in the next few weeks. It’s clear: we need all the boys. Burnley showed that.
Keita just needed time
After Napoli game he was injured. He needed time to adapt. We knew how good he is but it’s about bringing the boys to the right moment.
It’s just a shame for the boy. He’s been in outstanding shape. He has helped us a lot. Trent is still a young boy and we can’t push him through 20 games in a row. It could have been worse. Six weeks is massive for us, but it means he will be back for a big part of the season and that’s good.
Injury updates on Mane and Robertson
Sadio tries to run the first time. It doesn’t sound like he will be ready for tomorrow. Gini is fine. Robbo is fine.
