Klopp warns rivals Chelsea are serious title contenders

That run could be under threat against Chelsea, who are unbeaten in their last seven games against the Reds at Anfield - a run rolling back to a 4-1 defeat in the Premier League in 2012. There was never a team that won all four, right?

"We are greedy, we want to win both of them if we can".

Zola said the game is an "opportunity to see players who didn't have many games so far" but that they would "take it seriously". This will be a game where he can rest some of the midfield and attacking options for Saturday.

The good news for Moses but certainly bad news for Chelsea and their fans is that Pedro was not spotted training with the first-teamers at Cobham yesterday, meaning he is doubtful to travel with the squad to Anfield tomorrow.

"It is not the Premier League, but we want to play the games as best as we can".

Trump tariffs: Higher prices possible for these products
Beijing's vice premier Liu He was proposed to meet with the Trump administration in Washington to have mid-level trade talks. Earlier, both sides had slapped additional tariffs of worth $50 billion on each other's products.

Alberto Moreno has at least been in the matchday squads recently so he could replace Andrew Robertson at left-back while Joe Gomez could be recalled alongside Joel Matip as Virgil van Dijk won't be risked after picking up a rib injury at the weekend.

"Dejan [Lovren] looks actually quite good, he has trained completely normal now four times". Klopp will still be without Adam Lallana and Divock Origi, however.

And after that, Chelsea face Liverpool - the only top-flight team with six wins from six games - at Stamford Bridge in a mouthwatering league contest on Sunday. The 29-year-old has not played this season after aggravating an earlier pelvic injury during Croatia's march to the World Cup final in Russian Federation in July. Only one of the last 4 LFC managers having landed a club prize - Kenny Dalglish during his brief 18 month return to the hot-seat.

Many managers will be rotating their sides, as the competition is often a third-choice trophy for many behind the league and the FA Cup, and even fourth-choice for those playing in Europe. We have a lot of players who are all top quality, and I think that helps the team to perform as they are doing. Whoever loses this game will say the cup was not the priority and has no relevance to Saturday, and whoever wins will definitely use it going into that game. "But it's true that, not just Andy, the whole team are in unbelievable form and I think we need to make the most of this form we are all in and keep moving forward".
