KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"It's a football team with a specific way of playing".

This time they are in League Cup action, as Chelsea make the trip north for a hotly anticipated preview for Saturday's early Premier League title clash.

Liverpool are in the midst of a hard stretch of games which has seen them beat Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-German and Southampton so far, but after the two Chelsea games they will travel to Napoli in the Champions League before hosting Manchester City in a huge Premier League clash.

Waiting patiently for Fabinho to adapt to Liverpool's style of play could be the flawless way for Klopp to introduce him to devastating effect during the tough winter months.

"When you first come to a country there are a lot of things you have no clue about", he told a news conference.

The dilemma Klopp faces-and that faced by Maurizio Sarri, who has enjoyed an nearly equally impressive start as Chelsea manager-is deciding how seriously to take the Carabao Cup.

Firmino & Sturridge can start together, says Klopp
He's in good shape and scoring is not something that can be taken for granted. "I told him before the game, I've never seen him - since I've [been here] - as fit as he is at the moment".

Liverpool host Premier League rivals Chelsea in the EFL Cup at Anfield on Wednesday night, but will Jurgen Klopp rotate his team?

On his day, Sturridge is a top-class attacker with a superb eye for goal and if Liverpool continue to improve at their current rate, he will need to be ready to contribute as the fixtures begin to pile up in the coming weeks and months.

"It's only because the game is so quick and so intense that it needs to get natural". There's also the small matter of a six-year trophy drought, going back to this competition in 2011-12, with many supporters believing the club can't afford to be dismissive about any silverware. It's not about changing these players, we want their football personality. He has made 10 chances for team-mates this season, only bettered by Eden Hazard out of the Elite Player options. It is about spaces and defensively closing them, offensively using them. We are not changing these players.

"That's completely normal. There's no time frame to say: "I give you that, I give you that, I give you that".

"It's a competition we like". It's only a matter of time before they win something. To him, his followers are his best friends and he would go a long way to ensure that he keeps them refreshed and entertained.
