Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool’s Premier League plan in Salah, Mane and Firmino hint

The Reds came close to winning their first ever Premier League title last year but ultimately lost out to Manchester City, who won it by one point.

Liverpool did, however, win their sixth European Cup by beating Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League final.

But as a result of their successful season, Liverpool arguably over-exerted a multitude of their players, including the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Salah made 53 appearances while Mane and Salah made 50 and 48 respectively.

Goalkeeper Alisson and Virgil van Dijk also made 50-plus appearances but Klopp has revealed there’ll be some rotation to his side this season.

“No football player should play 50 or 60 games a season, especially not in these intense positions,” he said after his side’s win over Southampton at the weekend.

“Goalie and a centre-half maybe do it but all the rest, give whatever you have and next game maybe somebody else will do the job.

“That’s the plan, but we can only do that if they all stay fit.”

Should Klopp choose to rotate Salah, Mane and Firmino, the German has a plethora of options to choose from off the bench.

Champions League hero Divock Origi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri could all feature more for a Liverpool side vying for domestic success.

Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Southampton at the weekend came courtesy of goals from Mane and Firmino.

Mane has started the season on fire, having notched twice for the Reds in Liverpool’s Super Cup win over Chelsea last week.

Klopp added: ”A lot of times in my life I had sensational players always [but] not world-class players.

“Now, thank God I have them and they make the difference. We don’t have to talk about that.

“Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah – these guys in the last situation are really outstanding.

“They were a constant threat, however tired they are. That’s brilliant and, of course, made the difference. We don’t have to talk about that.”
