​Liverpool boss Klopp insists 'no problem' with two games in 48 hours

Despite a hectic winter schedule, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not complaining about the dates and times of his team's upcoming games.

The fixture congestion means that Liverpool will face Leicester City on Friday, followed by an away game at Burnley on Monday.

It will be a difficult time for Klopp and his players, and he will have to use every bit of his squad juggling abilities to ensure all the players are fresh and in good form. But Klopp is not one to complain too much about fixtures.

"You cannot learn from it, you only learn to accept it. That's all," he told the club's website.

"We have to be fully concentrated on the Leicester game and after the Leicester game we have a few hours to 'collect the bones' to see who is able to play against Burnley and then we'll make the line-up.

"It's different. We don't moan about it. We play Leicester, we play Burnley and we play Everton [in the FA Cup] – no problem with that."
