Jurgen Klopp discusses his right-back options for Liverpool’s clash with Man City

Liverpool vs Man City

Liverpool will look to continue their fine start to the 2021/22 season on Sunday.

The Reds’ last outing saw them smash FC Porto, who had previously gone unbeaten in 18 games, 5-1 in a Champions League tie.

Before that, Liverpool were held to a 3-3 draw by Brentford the weekend prior, but are also the only side in the Premier League who are yet to lose a single game this campaign.

Of course, that could very easily change this weekend, when they play host to Manchester City in Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off.

Man City did lose to PSG earlier this week, and were beaten by Tottenham on the opening weekend. However, their win over Chelsea recently reminded any doubters that Pep Guardiola and co. are still a force to be reckoned with.

Klopp on Liverpool’s right-back options for Man City

Ahead of the City game, Jurgen Klopp spoke to the press on Friday, and discussed a number of topics.

Amongst the matters opened up on were his options at right-back, with the German having named three players, none of whom came in the form of first-choice Trent Alexander-Arnold, as potential starters:

“We have James, we have Joe, we have Neco. We could change system. There are a lot of things possible. Whoever plays there should be protected by at least two players.”

Klopp also outlined what Liverpool need to do to beat the champions:

“We have to brave, front-footed, cheeky in moments, really your best version and then and only then you have a chance. So that is what we try. What we did last week or the other day was OK but we need a complex football challenge. Thank God for both teams! It’s exciting.”
