Klopp To Recall These 3 Players As Liverpool Boss Plans Changes Against Tottenham
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is set to axe Simon Mignolet and recall Loris Karius between the sticks against Tottenham on Saturday, according to reports
Jurgen Klopp is set to recall Loris Karius, Gini Wijnaldum and Divock Origi as the Liverpool boss plans to make changes against Tottenham on Saturday, according to the Mirror.
Liverpool head in to the weekend action sitting fifth in the Premier League table and out of both domestic cups having won just one of their last 10 games in all competitions – which was a narrow 1-0 win over Plymouth in their FA Cup replay.
It looks like Klopp is now ready to take a tough approach with his under-performing stars by ringing the changes for tomorrow evening’s crucial clash with top four rivals Tottenham at Anfield.
The Mirror claim that the Reds boss will axe Mignolet after the Belgian international made two costly mistakes during recent defeats to Chelsea and Hull City.
Loris Karius will therefore be recalled between the sticks and given another chance to cement himself as Liverpool’s number one having previously held the gloves earlier in the season before losing his place to Mignolet in December.
Karius has impressed during recent cup games against Plymouth, Southampton and Wolves so it appears the German youngster is set to be given a run of games in the first team during the second half of the season.
The Mirror also suggest that Divock Origi could be set to a recall up front having found his first team opportunities limited recently.
It will be interesting to see who Klopp leaves out if he does start Origi with Roberto Firmino perhaps in the firing line as it’s difficult to see Philippe Coutinho or Sadio Mane being dropped for a huge game against Tottenham.
Gini Wijnaldum will also come back in to the midfield after being named on the bench during last weekend’s defeat at Hull. Emre Can is the man most likely to make way as the German international has come under criticism from supporters following some disappointing performances of late.
