Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has played down suggestions that his team need a major rebuild I the summer.
Instead, he claims that the problem is that the squad this season has been so hit by injuries, that players have had little chance to play together. For the German then, it is a case of making some minor readjustments.
Captain Jordan Henderson is the latest player to join their extensive injury list. He has been ruled out until April after undergoing an operation to deal with the groin injury he picked up in the home defeat to Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Liverpool’s win 2 – 0 away at Sheffield United on Sunday night helped to address their recent slide in the Premier League, although they still face a major struggle to make the top four, to ensure Champions League qualification for next season.
They have one foot in the quarter-finals of this year’s competition, having won the away leg of their last 16 tie against RB Leipzig 2 – 0.
