Fabinho to be given time to settle, confirms Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss has selection headache ahead of Blues Cup clash

The English striker is in line for another starting berth against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, where supporters will be hoping the team can progress into the fourth round of the competition.

Manchester City, the current champions, remain the favourites to win the league ahead of Liverpool, but Klopp believes Chelsea have the strength and the title-winning experience to make them contenders.

The German coach has admitted that it may take Fabinho even longer to be ready to start, however, as he continues to await his chance.

He fielded a youth team in an FA Cup match not so long ago, but he doesn't need to do that now when you look at the top-class players in his squad who need some game time against Chelsea tonight.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he will play a "really strong side" for the cup fixture but the inclusion of Mignolet was the only change he confirmed at his pre-match news conference. They are here because of what they did. Otherwise, to improve something you would give yourself half a year to really make the next step in whatever kind of career.

Often referred to as "Sarri-ball", the Italian's approach is heavily reliant on possession and a 4-3-3 formation that requires players to fulfil specific roles.

Mark Warnecke, who at 35 became the oldest person to win a swimming world title since since 1971 in 2005, has created two special mineral drinks for the Premier League leaders. "He looks ready", Klopp added.

After the League Cup game is wrapped up, Liverpool will head down to Stamford Bridge in order to take on Chelsea in Premier League on Saturday. It says much for Liverpool's squad depth that this start has come despite Roberto Firmino missing a game with an eye injury and with Mohamed Salah some way short of his best form.

The Reds are expected to make a whole host of changes for Wednesday night as typically the Carabao Cup would be bottom of their list of priorities behind the league, Champions League and the FA Cup.

"It's not different between him and other players".

"In the moment we are in a good way".

"He can not be settled, but it's a good thing that Millie, Naby and Fabinho played together in this formation in pre-season".

So can drinks which helped an Olympic swimmer set her fastest times in 20 years also help Liverpool to win their first league title in almost 30?

Sarri has started the same four defenders in every Premier League game, despite their obvious defensive frailties. Roy Hodgson's XI was full of players with little or no chance of getting into his first team - and it showed all evening.
