​Klopp defends Liverpool rotation policy

Jurgen Klopp has refused to blame Liverpool's recent dip in form on his rotation policy following two frustrating home draws.

"We had two draws at home. Criticism is completely normal but I thought they were two completely different games," said Klopp.

"The Everton game was a really good game, we played really well - one of the best derbies since I arrived - but with the wrong result in the end. We were unlucky.

"But to be honest against West Brom we didn't deserve any luck. It was not a good performance, it was not as good as we could have played.

"The timing was off, it was not fluid enough, the passing not at its best. That's it. It was not a good game but we haven't had a lot of bad games in the last few weeks.

"I don't think it had anything to do with rotation."
