VIDEO: Klopp Explains Why Firmino And Jota Start Against Man City

Posted by

Liverpool released their team news at 3:30 today and hour before their major clash with Man City at the Etihad and it had fans intrigued. They had been debating all week over who should start, Jota or Firmino, no one expected Klopp to pick both men to start away.

This was a major talking point before the game as Virgil van Dijk is out injured, they were afraid Liverpool would be weak defensively and would have to take a deeper formation but they have done the complete opposite with the reds starting 4 up front. This match is just going to be goals, goals and more goals.

“If you want to get something here you have to be really brave”

This was Klopp’s key point before the game and being brave he is, will this be the winning formula against City?
