He receives on Sunday evening Liverpool FC the leader from Leicester. Just in time for prime time, the round leather rolls on the legendary Anfield Road. Head coach Jürgen Klopp has to be in the mega hit Premier League do without well-known staff and should send the following eleven players onto the lawn.
In England, too, after the international break, the focus is fully on league play again. All of the LFC national players returned to the club last Thursday. Since then, the Reds’ physios have been working incessantly to get the players ready to play and ready for the important exchange of blows against the Foxes despite a few ailments.
While the efforts of some actors, such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Thiago, Andrew Robertson and Neco Williams, are still in the stars, the following long-term injuries will undoubtedly miss the game.
In addition, star striker Mohamed Salah is just as unavailable due to his corona infection as is captain Jordan Henderson (muscular problems). The aforementioned wobbly candidates all around Oxlade-Chamberlain are on the mend, however. Whether it will be enough for the game on Sunday evening remains questionable, Klopp recently emphasized to the media.
Despite the delicate personnel situation, you don’t fall into self-pity, Klopp revealed at the press conference before the game. “It’s just the current situation. A minute after you hear about an injury, you are already in the process of resolving it. We have (enough) players available. We are a real unit. The more problems we have, the closer we get together . “
With a good dose of self-confidence and the following starting XI, the 53-year-old soccer coach should expect Leicester City on the ninth game day of the English Premier League. As usual, the goal is guarded by the Brazilian Alisson. In defense, Joel Matip and Nathaniel Phillips start in the headquarters and Neco Williams and Andrew Robertson on the flanks.
Although goalgetter Salah has to pass, Klopp should fall back on his usual offensive formation of 4-2-3-1. Xherdan Shaqiri would then take over the right wing position of the Egyptian, as he did against West Ham United and Manchester City as a joker. Neiby Keita and Georginio Wijnaldum act in the defensive midfield and bring the balls to the aforementioned Shaqiri as well as Sadio Mané and the 19-year-old youngster Curtis Jones. Center forward Roberto Firmino should then be served in the front of the box.
