Premier League Klopp Keeps Faith On Young Players Ahead Of Luton Clash

Ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League home match against Luton Town, manager of Liverpool Juergen Klopp believes he has faith in his young players to stand up.

Those in charge Due to injuries sustained during the weekend’s victory over Brentford, Darwin Nunez is doubtful for Liverpool’s match against Anfield, and Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones will be out.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, Dominik Szoboszlai, and custodian Alisson are also absent.

“I would like to say we have no issues, but we have some.

Not available Alisson, that’s a muscle injury where we do not know how long it will take but definitely not in the foreseeable time coming back,” Klopp told reporters on Tuesday.

“Then we have Diogo with a knee issue and is ruled out. Curtis with a bone ligament issue and is ruled out.”

Liverpool has nine games in thirty days, and the injuries could not have come at a worse moment with a League Cup final against Chelsea this coming Saturday.

However, Klopp thinks the circumstances will give players like Conor Bradley, who has shown promise in recent first team call-ups, greater chances.

“We are where we are because of them.

That’s how it is because the boys really delivered. We will have to use and give the opportunity because in a good moment they can all be in,” Klopp said.

“We have still options there, definitely.
“Players who showed what they can do like James McConnell or Bobby Clark, Lewis Koumas and Jayden Danns.

“They are all massive talents, but we will see what we can do.”

Jota is the biggest worry with his knee injury likely to keep him out for a considerable amount of time.

“With Diogo it will obviously take months. With Curtis.

“It’s with the injuries as well you have important days.

Day five, day 10 are important days when you judge the situation again because nobody reacts in the same way,” Klopp added.

“Set-pieces are one strength (of Luton) but I have to say the way they play their system with their confidence level, they play incredible.

Even in games they lost they were in the game,” he said.

“We experienced a tough game there, but it was a different game to how they play now.”
