Liverpool boss Klopp hails Cup kids: But Chelsea will need different team

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praised his young players after they defeated Shrewsbury Town in their FA Cup fourth round replay.

However, Klopp admitted it will probably be a different looking side for the trip to Chelsea in the fifth round of the competition.

He said, "I was very pleased with the performance and the result especially. We did what we did not to go out of the competition, we have a really good chance with the boys.

"These boys are our boys, we always use them. It was always clear that we wanted to use them. We will see who we have available around the Chelsea game.

"At the moment it looks quite comfortable, hopefully it stays like this. The team [for Chelsea] will probably look different from the team who played Shrewsbury but we always line up to win the game."
