Head coach Jurgen Klopp took to the media to claim that Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak have made big steps in adapting to Liverpool’s style of football as he contemplates a defensive rearrangement for their Leicester game.
The German manager has explored 12 different central defensive partnerships in the Premier League this campaign and he could take the number 13 when he faces off against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, with Fabinho sidelined to a muscle injury, and was not included in bestusacasinosites.com online casino odds for the game.
Ever since signing for Liverpool on the deadline day, Davies and Kabak have not featured in a single game for the team as Klopp seems to be giving the duo time to adapt to the Reds training style. But the head coach might just let one of them get their debut against Leicester City on Saturday as they look to get back on their feet following a 4-1 home defeat at the hands of league leaders Manchester City last weekend.
Speaking to the media about the two winter signings, Klopp said via Guardian: “They have thrown themselves into everything that is ahead of them, which is what a defender should do. Both Ben and Ozan are calm people, willing to learn, and have a great attitude. They are making big steps in adapting to the way we play. Again, that’s important.
“We have still a clear way to defend, which is important. If both of them would be on the pitch then there are still nine players used to what we have done before. If two players do something completely different then that would lead to a strange situation. It’s all good so far. Now we have to make a decision.”
The German manager will be taking charge of his 300th game for Liverpool having won 179 of those games. Only Kenny Daglish, with 185 wins, has secured more at the same stage while managing the Anfield team and there ought to be casino game online regarding the manager’s success with the Reds.
Speaking about his impressive Liverpool record, Jurgen Klopp said: “It doesn’t feel like this at the moment, I can tell you. That’s something I will think about when I’m not here anymore, not at the moment. I know that my job is the present and the future, not the past. Game number 300 is very important to me and games one-299 are not a little bit important at this moment. We know we are not completely clueless when we talk about football, but we know that we have to be successful in the future.”
Liverpool is still waiting for a decision to be made by UEFA regarding where their Champions League last 16 second leg against RB Leipzig will be held, as they explore the alternatives to Anfield due to quarantine guidelines set in Germany. The first leg of the game will be held in Budapest, Hungary on Tuesday.
