Benitez warns Klopp to win trophies at Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp refuses to ease rotation in defence as Joel Matip named on bench against Newcastle

At today's press conference leading up to tomorrow's Premier League game between Liverpool and Newcastle United (coached by former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez), Klopp was discussing the health status of some of his players.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed two of his players have been struck down by illness this week as Liverpool prepare for the visit of Newcastle on Saturday night.

A first defeat in five games, and just a second in nine, leaves Newcastle 16th in the table and two points above the dropzone.

"We know who is coming - a Liverpool legend is coming, Rafael Benitez one of the best managers in the world".

Salah has scored five goals in Liverpool's last four games.

Jordan Henderson's flicked pass was blocked but it fell invitingly for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to charge deep into the Newcastle half.

Liverpool will be looking to Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane for inspiration once again in their Premier League meeting with Newcastle.

"Woodburn and Wijnaldum have been ill for a week or so".




Klopp does bavw other options in place of the Dutchman, though. Gayle's movement did open up gaps for others to break into, even if Loris Karius didn't have too much to do. The only major bone of contention at the back is picking Virgil van Dijk's partners, with Joel Matip likely to get the nod on Saturday.

"[The weather] was fine", Benitez said. Although he's set to retain the defence from the previous match, there could be changes in midfield and attack.

Meanwhile, Benitez has confirmed that Jonjo Shelvey will miss the game against his former club because of a knee problem picked up in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Bournemouth.

And while Benitez admits the German's team are easier on the eye than his 2005 and 2006 trophy collectors, he insists fans only care about prizes and not one-off victories.

Liverpool should establish a Premier League record of scoring in 22 consecutive home games against a single opponent. The Egypt international's stock has risen significantly during his debut season with the Reds. They are really good.

"Not only him, there are a few more players".

"I remember the game from earlier on in the season at their place".

"At the same time, we have to stop them scoring". Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 gives us an early look at how this match could play out.
