|Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has vowed to pick a full-strength team for next weekâs Champions League clash against FC Porto, even though his side have a massive game against Manchester United a few days later.
With Liverpool 5-0 ahead from the first leg of their last-16 tie against the Portuguese giants, Klopp was widely Kent Tekulve Authentic Jersey tipped to rest a host of star names ahead of a potentially crucial game at Old Trafford.
Liverpoolâs hopes of finishing ahead of United and securing a top four finish could depend on the outcome of the game on March 25th, but Klopp insists he will not shake up his team with too many changes.
Arsenal rested a host of star names for their Europa League game against Ostersunds last week after establishing a healthy first leg lead, but slipped to a defeat at their Emirates Stadium home before suffering a Carabao Cup final loss against Manchester City a few days http://www.officialpiratesproshop.com/Kent_Tekulve_Jersey later and Klopp is using that example as a warning not to tamper too much.
âAll the people before the Porto game will tell me: âNow you can rest him, him and himâ,â said Klopp.
âArsenal for example, thatâs so unfair. They were through in the tie and had a final on Sunday yet I only hear after the game things like, âwow that was embarrassing against a Swedish teamâ. But they are through in the tie and played a final on Sunday.
âThatâs the situation. We play Man United, we will not rest anybody. We will play a strong side against Porto and a strong side against United.âFormer Liverpool striker John Aldridge is among those calling for Klopp to leave out star names from the Champions League Authentic Jack Eichel Youth Jersey game next week, after arguing the Porto game is already over.
âLiverpoolâs game against United is coming up on the horizon and Kloppâs side have already given themselves a huge boost heading into that game after their 5-0 Champions League win against Porto,â stated the ex-Ireland striker in his Sunday World column.
âThe second leg of that tie is due to be played a few days before United v Liverpool at Old Trafford and Klopp now has the http://www.authenticsabresprostore.com/authentic-29-jake-mccabe-jersey.html chance to rest as many players as he wants.
âMeanwhile, Mourinho and United are embroiled in a tight Champions League game against Sevilla after their 0-0 draw in Spain and wonât have the option of saving players back and focusing on the Liverpool game.
âItâs the kind of small advantage that can be so crucial in a top four race and Klopp has to take it.â
