Klopp signals changes but no complete overhaul for Chelsea League Cup clash

Liverpool, who have won all of their games so far this season, are expected to make a number of changes against Chelsea and Thompson has named five players who should start at Anfield.

Summer signing Fabinho could also be in line to make his full debut for Liverpool following his €50 million move from Monaco.

The German coach has admitted that it may take Fabinho even longer to be ready to start, however, as he continues to await his chance.

"If we say "only the League Cup" - it (the final) is Wembley, and I remember when we were there, we wanted to win it". They are here because of what they did.

"I have to make decisions and I will make decisions and it will be a really strong side".

Klopp has confirmed that Migs will start against Chelsea, saying: "The only position I will confirm is Simon Mignolet will start". It's just a football team with a specific way of playing.

Souness, who played in arguably one of the greatest ever Reds teams before going on to manage at Anfield, has spoken about just how good he thinks Jurgen Klopp's side is.

It's reported that Warnecke has agreed to work alongside the club's nutritionist Mona Nemmer to ensure that Klopp's squad is firing on all cylinders. It says much for Liverpool's squad depth that this start has come despite Roberto Firmino missing a game with an eye injury and with Mohamed Salah some way short of his best form.

The reds get their League Cup campaign underway on Wednesday night, in the first of two games in four days against the men from Stamford Bridge. So I don't know what my future at Liverpool is.

The clubs now occupy two of the top three spots in the Premier League, with Liverpool top with 18 points from a possible 18, and Chelsea two places and two points further back.

Waiting patiently for Fabinho to adapt to Liverpool's style of play could be the ideal way for Klopp to introduce him to devastating effect during the tough winter months. The 29-year-old has not played this season after aggravating an earlier pelvic injury during Croatia's march to the World Cup final in Russian Federation in July.

A former world swimming champion has created a "secret drink" to help improve Liverpool players' regeneration in an effort to give them an edge in the title race.
