Klopp wowed by Chelsea's progress under Sarri

Klopp: 'Sarri, what a manager!'

Liverpool Outcast Divock Origi Set to Return Soon But Concerns Remain Over Recurring Ankle Injury

The Reds take on Chelsea in the third round of the cup on Wednesday night, with Klopp already confirming he will make at least one change at Anfield.

Moreno is eager to get the nod against the Blues and explained why the necessity to be at the highest level consistently ensures he is ready to perform if called upon.

"Salah is really ready to work for the team and it is a normal situation to have times where you don't score", added the German.

"It's really good to watch".

"It looks like the more Eden plays, the better he gets", Zola said of Hazard, who was voted the seventh-best player in the world at the Best FIFA Football Awards in London on Monday. It says much for Liverpool's squad depth that this start has come despite Roberto Firmino missing a game with an eye injury and with Mohamed Salah some way short of his best form.

But with Liverpool having only won one trophy in the last 12 years - that a success in the Carabao Cup when it was known as the Carling Cup back in 2012 - it is a valuable chance for the Merseyside outfit to claim long-awaited silverware.

"That's right", he said. "That's the only way I know, unfortunately". What we think about is how we can win football games and improve our game.

The Londoners are unbeaten in 2018-19 under new manager Maurizio Sarri and Moreno is impressed by the way the Italian has transferred his style from former club Napoli to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Klopp said: "I know that people always are talking about - I don't know exactly why - Man City being clear or us being champion at the end of the season or whatever but they completely forgot Chelsea".

"Divock is not far away but it's an ankle thing and a very unfortunate situation", Klopp said.

They will be encouraged by the injury news coming out of Cobham, however.

A run all the way to the final would consist of 6 fixtures - the same as in the group stage as the Champions League - and it does represent a significant opportunity for Klopp approaching his 3rd year anniversary at the club.

It's a fact that irritates the defender and one he hopes can be altered this season.

'I will not name a number of changes.

"We've won seven, we're playing fantastically well, and I think we need to continue in this way".

Asked what role he can play in that process, Zola replied: "I don't want it to look like we are not happy".
