Klopp happy to give Mignolet a start

Klopp happy to give Mignolet a start

With a record of seven wins out of seven games in all competitions, the Reds have made an early statement that Manchester City won't have it all their way this season.

It might be early doors but as the only team in the league to still have a ideal record, Liverpool have placed themselves in a strong position to challenge and although Chelsea and City both play the Anfield outfit in the next two weeks, the Reds will be confident.

Fans will be hoping for an improved performance from this side, however will be hoping for more of the same from their latest recruit when they take on Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before hosting Jurgen Klopp's men once again on Saturday in the league.

Liverpool Manager Juergen Klopp says he has no concern over Egypt striker Mohamed Salah's form, ahead of Saturday's match against Southampton. Since then he's [been] brilliant. "We didn't play a fantastic game, we didn't create a lot".

Georginio Wijnaldum is refusing to get carried away by talk of Liverpool winning the Premier League this season and insists he and his teammates are taking things game by game.

Klopp knows any silverware will be welcome.

Nevertheless, it seems as if the third member of Liverpool's Brazilian trio could appear in what hopefully is the first of many games with the Liverbird on his chest.

The Croatian has not played any competitive football since the World Cup final but Klopp confirmed that he is back in contention.

"The pressure is already there". On Sunday we didn't play at our high level so that is why we didn't win. If you don't perform, it's hard to improve your situation.

It is also claimed that their 22-year-old England International Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who plays a midfielder, is likely not to feature for the Blues against the Reds following a setback in training.

Chelsea have won this competition five times, second only to Liverpool, who are eight-time winners but have yet to win a trophy in Klopp's tenure. That's all. But at the end, it's not about changing these players' football personality.

"No player likes to be sat on the bench or out of the squad, but then it motivates you to keep working hard and battling for your place, and that's what I'm doing every day", the No.18 told Liverpoolfc.com.

"We are in a good moment".
