Neil Humphreys: Liverpool can't win anything with this defence

Having played out a hard-fought 2-2 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and Klopp having made just three changes for that clash, fatigue is a certainty.

Klopp has suggested that Karius will be selected throughout their European campaign this season as he needs to give the talented German stopper game-time in order to help his development.

Spurs secured a very outstanding winat Wembley against Borussia Dortmund, featuring three superb first-half goals - all within the opening 15 minutes.

"But I don't think I had a percentage of influence on his (manager's) position to be honest".

Jordan Henderson admits Liverpool have to learn lessons from their defeat to Sevilla if they are to progress in the Champions League this season.

Burnley have played well so far this season, while Liverpool are a good team and deserve to be favourites they do not deserve to be favoured by 2 goals.

Liverpool fought back to dominate the game and take the lead by halftime thanks to Roberto Firmino's tap-in in the 21st and Mohamed Salah's deflected shot in the 36th.

The former Liverpool midfielder, speaking on Irish TV channel RTE, said Klopp has not improved the team's defence or the squad overall in the last 18 months.

Missing star striker Sadio Mane wont help the reds cause here as he is suspended following his red card at Manchester City.

"I know we are all looking for this thing".

"I've had a chat with Klopp and explained exactly that I wanted to put right my initial mistake".

Owen said, "I thought they were brilliant for half an hour, 35 minutes in the first half". So they don't like me.

"That's something I have to consider when I think about the lineup, we need freshness in mind and in legs".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that Philippe Coutinho has "trained outstandingly" this week and is in line for his first start of the season on Saturday.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists the defensive frailties which cost his side victory against Sevilla can not be solved merely in the transfer market.
