Liverpool legend Carragher hails Klopp for this reason

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has praised manager Jurgen Klopp for the rotation policy which he is using.

Klopp has decided to rest some of his key players such as Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane for recent games as they prepare for the busy festive period schedule.

The strategy used by the German has so far seen good results as the club has gone on a six game unbeaten run in the Premier League and won five in the   process.

Speaking on Super Sunday, Carragher said about Klopp’s strategy: “They’re in very good shape. Liverpool are devastating going forward with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino now getting a lot more goals.

“The Champions League match in midweek [against Spartak Moscow] and Everton fixture are huge fixtures for Liverpool. It’s another huge midweek and weekend for Liverpool.

“I think the brilliant thing for Liverpool is that it’s Jurgen Klopp’s second full season in English football. January was a bit of a nightmare for Liverpool last season because of injuries, a loss of form and Sadio Mane going away.

“But this year he is rotating it much more – he’s changing five or six players each game. That’s not easy to get it right and it leaves you open to massive criticism.

“He’s getting it right now – changing players at the right time. He’s got a bench now which looks like a bench a top club should have – he didn’t have that last season. Hopefully you’ll see Liverpool get through this period.”

Liverpool’s recent run of good run has also allowed them to overtake the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal and break into the top four.
