Liverpool boss Klopp unsure of Man Utd rotation plans: But Ole respects the Prem

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits there'll be rotations for their clash with Manchester United this week.

Liverpool meet United on Thursday fresh from Saturday's defeat of Southampton.

Klopp said, "We have to do that very often and people never like that because it is always like this. We have cup competitions and we have games and games and games, so we rotate and people always think we don't respect the competition. I think everybody is 100 per cent sure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer respects the Premier League 100 per cent, but the situation is now like it is - and I really think it's crazy what we did with that.

"I know there were not proper solutions, but I think there could be a better situation than that, I am pretty sure. I am not, is it possible that United has a weekend off after that or something like that? So, three games in five days but then a weekend off, so it looks like there could have been a window where we could have done something slightly different. But it is a decision and I understand that he doesn't like that, definitely.

"We will see what we make of that. We have a tough programme ourselves because of that because now we play the last four games in a very short period of time. That's how it is and we will see what we can make."
