The manager of Liverpool Football Club, Jurgen Klopp has explained his reason for not starting Fabinho against Manchester United.
The German was under scrutiny by some supporters of the club following his decision to start Matip from the bench. However, Klopp justified his decision while speaking at a press conference after the game at Old Trafford.
No, we have in the moment five senior midfielders and we have to start with three. We could start with two if we would have more attackers but we have only three attackers, so it means we start with three and then we change during the game and it’s like how we want to start. And how we want to change, we have to think before the game and that’s the only reason for it. This is not the story of the game as well. It’s just the decision for this game.
Liverpool has failed to win any game since the start of the Premier League, they have drawn two ( Fulham and Crystal Palace) and lost one ( Manchester United)
