Klopp goes off after Liverpool transfer question: Only in England

Wolves v Liverpool: Reds a strong bet to repeat recent Molineux win

Wolves v Liverpool: Reds a strong bet to repeat recent Molineux win

The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno and Naby Keita were all given their chances and none of them proved a point to Jurgen Klopp.

Paul Merson perhaps took Carragher's point too far last week when he claimed that Liverpool should exit the next round of the Champions League in order to boost their title charge, but you do sense that Liverpool's title challenge could hinge as much on the fitness of their key players as the fitness of Man City's.

While the result wasn't exactly optimal, Liverpool did at least make a little bit of history during Monday's FA Cup third-round defeat at Wolves.

Naby Keita started alongside James Milner and Curtis Jones in midfield and was one of nine changes Klopp made to his lineup.

"Two or three of that line up won't be at the club come the start of pre-season", Aldridge wrote in his column for the Liverpool Echo.

"Hoever and fellow youngsters Curtis Jones and Rafa Camacho needed help but they got very little".

Klopp confirmed that Lovren sustained a hamstring problem in the FA Cup clash.

"I don't want to name names but we all know who they are". I saw the ball inside already, but it never went in.

"The goals we conceded against Wolves were really poor". We have to make sure we bounce back and look at where we can get better. They played within themselves and that's not good enough.

"James Milner has been nearly faultless this season but he made a bad mistake and got punished with their opening goal".

Either way, Jurgen Klopp clearly has the FA Cup far down on his list of priorities, and with the opportunity to end a 28 year wait for a league title, could you blame him?

"It was a great hit but he shouldn't have been allowed to get the shot away". "There are a lot of players who are going to come in and give everything and the quality is still there".

With the Champions League not set to continue until mid-February, Liverpool can now just concentrate exclusively on the Premier League.
