Liverpool have qualified for the Champions League quarter finals, as they beat RB Leipzig 2-0 for the second game in a row on Wednesday night.

The Reds have been struggling this season at the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp’s revealing chat with Fabinho has exposed why there are so many problems at the club.

The Brazilian has been forced to play in defence due to the injury crisis at the club.

And the German manager revealed all after the result in his post-match press conference after returning Fabinho to the middle of the park as Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak played in defence.

He said: “I told him on the way downstairs you like the position six more then? He said yeah. You couldn’t show it more clear!

“We all want Fab on the six. Tonight he played there and the two centre-halves played an incredible game, to be honest.

“The whole last line played a really good game. We had to press them.

“We defended deep really well, not only in Champions League but especially. Everybody had a really good game.

“The three in midfield worked really well together. Three up front. Diogo as long as he could. It was a sensible decision to not let play him 90.

“The boys who came on, Naby especially was good, Milly was good.”
