Klopp confirms Mane apology/Explains Oxlade-Chamberlain absence vs West Brom


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp this evening provided a number of noteworthy insights into his latest squad selection.

    Robson-Kanu strikes

    The Reds are of course locked in action at present, in a Premier League meeting with West Brom at the Hawthorns.

    The clash marks a crucial one for Klopp and co., who remain in the thick of the battle for European football as things stand.

    After Chelsea fell to a surprise defeat at the hands of Arsenal during the week, Liverpool were aware that a victory this evening would see them move to within a point of the 4th-placed Pensioners.

    A 3-point haul would also be important in keeping Tottenham at bay, though, after Ryan Mason’s men downed Wolves by two goals to nil earlier on Sunday.

    As things stand early in the action at the Hawthorns, though, things are not going at all to plan for Liverpool.

    This comes with West Brom boasting a 1-0 advantage, after a disappointing defensive sequence allowed Matheus Pereira to slip Hal Robson-Kanu through to slot beyond Alisson in confident fashion:

    ‘He apologised’

    Whilst the visitors, at present, trail at in the West Midlands, though, this has not come as a result of Jurgen Klopp taking the Baggies lightly.

    The Liverpool boss opted for a strong starting XI, featuring the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho and Sadio Mane.

    And it was the latter of these Reds stars who, ahead of the action getting underway on Sunday, took centre stage in Klopp’s pre-match interview.

    This of course comes after Mane was spotted ignoring the efforts of his boss to join in the post-match celebrations after putting Manchester United to the sword at Old Trafford during the week.

    The German, though, has assured that a line has been drawn under the situation, with Mane having ‘apologised’:

    Klopp also provided an insight into Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being omitted from his matchday squad this evening, with both the English international, and midfield partner James Milner, expected to return to face Burnley during the week:

    ‘Oxlade is not in the squad, he was ill for a few days.’

    ‘We decided not to take him here, just give him another training session today so that he is ready for Wednesday.’

    ‘Millie hopefully could be ready for Wednesday. We take what we get.’
