Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Indicates Towards Two Players Starting In Moscow

Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Indicates Towards Two Players Starting In Moscow

Liverpool go in search of their firstChampions League victory of the season as they look to to take control of Group E when they visit Spartak Moscow on Tuesday night.

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has admitted he will use Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow as "a chance to prove himself" and secure the club's permanent number one spot in the long term.

Sound issues, some peculiar questions from local reporters and a confused interpreter made for a surreal atmosphere, but Klopp was also irritated by the questions he received from the British journalists present.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach chose to cut short his pre-match media duties after being asked if he was "in love" with any of his players, referring to Mauricio Pochettino's recent claims that he loves Harry Kane.

He said: 'I did call him the other day but it's not just Liverpool we discussed.

"I think if Liverpool are on TV everyone wants to watch, but I think if there's one set of supporters who aren't being entertained by it, it's Liverpool supporters. A waste of time".

The somewhat fraught translator asked: 'You love Harry?' That prompted Klopp to snap: 'Kane! We need to forget everything that happened last season, and work hard to correct mistakes.

"I think it's got to do with our style of play, our very offensive style".

Klopp has used Karius as his goalkeeper for European competition and he is hoping to impress enough to earn a place in his manager's Premier League plans at Simon Mignolet's expense.

"We need results. In the right moments, you need to be able to do the right things". Spartak also drew, 1-1, with Maribor. I know you and your colleagues (in the media) talk about different things, but I talk about the team performance.

Quincy Promes, who already has six goals and three assists in 10 total appearances for Spartak this season, is expected to be left off the matchday squad entirely when it is released.

"We know we can defend better and we practice in training".

"The greatest teams in Liverpool's history, in the early 1980s, they could be pragmatic week-in, week-out". So we will try to play perfectly and give our opponent as few opportunities as possible.

Spartak now sit in sixth position in the Russian Premier League after eleven games, a rather disappointing position for them considering they won the league last season.
