Naby Keita still adapting to life at Liverpool, says Klopp

It will no doubt be a risky ploy against a talented Premier League rival, but Jurgen Klopp has a lot of faith in his squad.

Ki-Jana Hoever became Liverpool's youngest ever FA Cup player and their third youngest in all competitions when he replaced Dejan Lovren in the sixth minute against Wolves. The victory put Manchester city right on track in the title race, as it cut short Liverpool's lead at the top from 7 to 4 points.

"This game was different and an important step for us".

Both are on schedule for their recoveries later this month, but are not yet in full team training-despite Klopp providing a positive update on them to reporters. So make sure you follow the hyperlink below to watch the game online for nothing!

"We made a change around the PSG game, I don't know when exactly, and the boys have to deal with it".

"Yes we lost 2-1 but no-one would have been surprised if it was a draw and with a little bit of luck we could have won the game", said Klopp. You'll go a long way to find a more freaky nine-point haul than the one achieved by Leicester, who defeated Chelsea and Everton away from home as well as Manchester City at the King Power Stadium, but surprisingly lost at home to Cardiff.

"I was fine with the performance, the intensity of the game".

"But City lost their unbeaten record at Anfield last season - and at the same time of year - and they responded by going on another long run of winning games".

Having just appealed in vain for a penalty after being barged over by Virgil van Dijk, Aguero kept his composure and exacted his revenge seconds later with his 250th career league goal. "We will see what we do", Klopp said.

"It's pretty clear if we make changes who will come in".

"Simon will play, of course". He is really, I would say in the moment, in the best moment since I know him, just like as a person he is fantastic.

The Reds slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Citizens at The Etihad on Thursday night as they suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of last term's champions.

The 50-year-old former Arsenal star suggested that Jürgen Klopp should forget about the club's ambitions for the Champions League and focus on the Premier League title instead.
