Georginio Wijnaldum responds to title talk after Liverpool's flawless start

"If I see one player with the feeling "oh, it's only the League Cup" then we could have a real problem".

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

However, the reports do hint that the Liverpool boss will name a strong team for the first of two meetings against Maurizio Sarri's side this week.

Klopp says Chelsea rival Sarri has overseen "the biggest transformation in style I have ever seen in a short space of time" since taking over at Stamford Bridge.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will return to Liverpool's starting line-up for the EFL Cup match against Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed. "We have to work, we need to improve and then maybe, in one year, we will be at the same level of Liverpool". "He deserves the game tomorrow".

"It was an intense game, it was a fantastic game from him, to be honest. I'm really happy to give him that opportunity". "One of them is how people judge cup competitions before you play them".

With the Reds having began the season with seven wins from seven in the league and the Champions League, Klopp could be forgiven for disregarding this tournament altogether in search of greater glories. It's a blunt metric, but Liverpool has won 13 and drawn four of the 20 league games he has played, conceding 12 goals at an average of 0.60 per game.

"I understand that he wants to play more".

"The pressure is already there". With James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum both playing a lot this season, it would make sense if they get replaced in the midfield.

"I don't put pressure on each player that plays tomorrow". If you don't perform, it's hard to improve your situation.

"But the situation of nobody in this team at the moment is bad".

The former Red said on Radio City: "There's a way he likes the players to play and if you don't do it, he makes the change".

"Dejan [Lovren] looks actually quite good, he has trained completely normal now four times".

There has been many theories as to why Fabinho has not made his debut yet ranging from the language barrier, to his actual skill and how he fits into the team and even Klopp setting an example about how competitive he wants the team to be to fight for places. Liverpool's longest period without a trophy since the middle of the last century.
