Jurgen Klopp options after Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana injuries

His last first-team outing came in November, but Klopp has said the 20-year-old could feature against Stoke on Saturday, with Liverpool's squad now decimated by injuries.

Klopp has the players to make it work, with Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner good contenders to make up for the Reds' missing attackers by advancing forward as wing-backs.

However, alongside Coutinho on the bench were Roberto Firmino (rested) and Daniel Sturridge, meaning teenagers Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander Arnold would start, with Divock Origi leading the line. Something to keep an eye on is whether Philippe Coutinho will have recovered from an illness.

Liverpool's second goal followed two minutes later, and it was simplicity at its very best.

When Jurgen klopp bought Sadio Mane from Southampton for £34 million last summer some thought they had over-payed.

Stoke looked edgier and edgier every time he picked up the ball and his ability to carry it deep meant the hosts were defending a lot deeper than they'd have liked.

The Senegal worldwide has enjoyed a phenomenal debut season at Anfield, becoming a key member of Klopp's team and scoring 13 league goals, more than any other Liverpool player.


After trailing against Stoke, Jurgen Klopp credits Simon Mignolet's crucial saves for keeping Liverpool alive. His shot on the bounce nestled nicely in the corner to take him to 30 Premier League goals, a record for Brazilian.

More may pass without similar incident in what could well prove to be his final appearances in Liverpool colours. Their set-piece quality is also a direct counter to Liverpool's weakness at defending them, so Liverpool may have yet another disappointing result on the road and drop more points on Saturday night.

"But having too many players is not good for a squad because you kill development".

Xherdan Shaqiri could return after a two-month injury lay-off, but will face a late fitness test, while the Potters are also hopeful that Jon Walters will be available after missing the defeat to Burnley with a concussion.

But Stoke will have a tough match ahead of them.

So fired up were Liverpool that they went close to opening the scoring inside the first minute, as Roberto Firmino saw a long-range effort tipped over by Artur Boruc. "He feels good, he is on a good way, but the problem with this is it is kind of a shooting muscle".
