Firmino’s absence means Klopp has five experienced strikers to choose from: Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.
“The ticket for this team must – and certainly will continue to be – counter-pressed.
That’s how it all started… I’ve seen so many of our games where I didn’t like it and it’s quite a strict thing,” Klopp explained when asked how he would decide which of these quintets would begin.
“The five that are available right now, and especially the six with Bobby, can do it pretty well, but if you do it in the game you’re playing, you get the chance to do it again. So that’s it.
” But of course we have the possibility to change course and we will see how we do it.
“Now we have to change [because] we have five games in the next two weeks so there will be changes and that’s a good thing.
I hope we can play at least these five again and maybe six to new from a while.
That would be absolutely awesome, but everyone will play, everyone is super important to us.
The manager was also asked about Harvey Elliott not playing in Liverpool’s last three games.
Klopp replied: “He trains exceptionally. » Fabio Carvalho is training exceptionally well, to be honest. All the guys [are].
“That’s the hardest part.
We haven’t had that all season and now we have that.
Suddenly I leave five players at home and suddenly they’re not even on your team.
Crazy! Harvey is very, very close; absolutely close to picking it up to start.
“If Fabinho receives his tenth Premier League booking on Saturday, he will be suspended for the matches against West Ham and Tottenham.
Mean while, Forest manager Cooper will be able to choose from the same group of players who were available for last weekend’s home defeat to Manchester United.
This means Cheikhou Kouyaté, Gustavo Scarpa, Ryan Yates, Serge Aurier, Chris Wood, Willy Boly, Dean Henderson, Omar Richards and Giulian Biancone will miss the 3pm BST kick-off in L4.
“We haven’t had any new injuries and no one is ready enough to come back,” Cooper told media Thursday.
“We are like before the match against Manchester United.
””We know all about the statistics and know that our away form hasn’t been good enough, but every game I ask myself, my staff and the players to do their best and really believe in the plan and to believe that we can achieve a positive result.
“If we go into the game with these things, we don’t have a chance.”
If we remember to do things the right way, we give ourselves a chance to win every game.
