Liverpool boss Klopp rules out starting Davies and Kabak against Man City

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has ruled out starting Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak tomorrow against Manchester City.

The new defensive pair will have a second training session in front of Klopp today.

Asked if he would be naming the pair as his 13th different defensive partnership this season, Klopp said: "No. If I don't have to, then no.

"Central midfield is not Hendo's favourite position, it is Fabinho's favourite position.

"Everything would help, a lot of things happened in the last few weeks and we tried to sort it. Sometimes we sort it and sometimes not.

"But now, of course, we have different options and that is good.

"It is the best news we could get and now we have to make sure the new boys get all the information they need.

"Because in another positions it is 'come on, try and we will see if we can adapt to you.'

"But in a defensive position, the things we do are really clear.

"It is about holding the line, it is about dropping off at the right moment, a lot of things that all teams do differently.

"Yes, we will see how quickly we can do that. [Friday] is an important session for that as well and then we will see what we will make of it."
