Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not keen on change for change’s sake but he has hinted that he could be ready to let midfielder Naby Keita loose for a run in the team.
The Guinea international has endured a stop-start beginning to his Liverpool career since joining in the summer of 2018, managing just 37 appearances so far with injuries hampering his progress.
However, he once again showed a glimpse of what he can offer the side with a 10-minute cameo – having recovered from a muscle injury sustained in the European Super Cup – in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford which had a decisive effect in securing a point.
“They are not all the same. We could have won away games to be honest performance-wise which we didn’t win for some reason.
“We know it’s not historically good what we have done (in the away group games) in the last few years, but in general, the Champions League was obviously really good.
“We did the right things in the right moment but we don’t rely on these things. We know we have to improve and we try again and again and again until it works out.”
