Klopp: Reds can't rely on Brazilian duo alone

Tony Pulis has contested 17 games with Liverpool during a career in charge of West Brom, Stoke and Palace, winning three and losing five with nine draws.

With the Ivory Coast worldwide returning to Manchester City and Pep Guardiola unlikely to make plans for him, an exit from the Etihad is on the cards for the former Swansea star.

The Reds have held on to third place in the standings, but Manchester City remain only two points behind manager Jurgen Klopp's unit.

WBA: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evas, Nyom; Livermore, Fletcher; Chadli, Morrison, Phillips; Robson-Kanu. Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan were solid last week and will need to continue to be as Liverpool is still suffering from some key injuries. Klopp's point was that Neuer makes mistakes too - they're just not emphasised quite like Mignolet's. In comparison with Arsenal, I've always done well when I've played against Arsenal at home.

He added: "We've certainly got to make sure that when we get in there, we concentrate more on finishing and hitting that target". After the game we had to think about it. That ratio is not what we want.

" We've been doing shooting and finishing", he said. "We've been hitting people in the stands more regularly than we've been hitting the goal".

We fully expect Firmino to play some part on Sunday and hopefully that does turn out to be an entire game.

White House partially to blame for Syria chemical attack: McCain
On Friday, the United States carried out missile strikes on a Syrian air base it says is suspected of storing chemical weapons. The US missile strikes on the Syrian airbase drew support from many nations, including United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

"And if they go with the three centre-halves, they're a big team and they can be really risky". We have to avoid set-pieces, defend them really well. They get good quality in.

"That they are really, really good friends - maybe best friends - and it helps us a lot. that they play together in the Brazil national team helps us. that they are both so unbelievably skilled helps us a lot". With one game a week for the rest of the season, there's a small chance Klopp can pick the same team and gather momentum while his direct opponents for top four compete in Europe or the FA Cup as well.

Thankfully, others are having similar problems - notably Arsenal, who would normally take a top four spot for granted.

Klopp is unperturbed. "Actually, I think it's positive when there is interest", the German said. But it will be hard enough.

Roberto Firmino's fitness has emerged as the latest concern with Klopp's assessment of the Brazilian hinting that he might not start in Sunday's game against West Brom. That's what we are doing.

This meeting is perhaps the biggest clash of styles in the Premier League.
