Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will make changes for Wednesday’s League Cup visit from Bournemouth, but he will still be without Daniel Sturridge.
Klopp confirmed frontman Sturridge, who is sidelined with a knee problem, is still not ready for first-team action after injuring himself in training on the eve of Klopp’s first game at Tottenham..
“There’s nothing new. Sturridge is getting better but not quick enough to change the situation for us tomorrow,” said Klopp, who will be without the suspended James Milner at Anfield.
Sturridge is currently working in the gym, according to Klopp, who did not say whether he expects to have the player fit for Saturday’s Premier League game at Chelsea.
“I don’t know how many changes I will make. When I make changes I want to win the game, we don’t have time to watch how it may work.
“We always do what we do to win. It is a very important game, but I know we had three games in the last eight days, so we do have to change it,” said Klopp.
And while Klopp may be new to English football he has already acknowledged the important of domestic cup competitions.
“It’s the most important cup in the world because it’s the game we have to play tomorrow,” added Klopp.
