#PLStories – #JurgenKlopp does not want to disturb partnership of #NatPhillips and #OzanKabak #LFC

Jurgen Klopp has hinted that Liverpool will persist with a rookie defensive pairing against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.
Liverpool have lost six of their last seven games in the Premier League and arrive at Molineux desperately in need of three points to boost their top four hopes.
Klopp’s team have struggled to deal with injuries to key defenders, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all currently sidelined.
While the trio are making progress, Klopp doesn’t expect any of his three first choice centre-backs to play before next season.

“We all hope they will be ready to start pre-season with us, that’s what we all hope,” Klopp said at his pre-Wolves press conference. “With Joel it is pretty much the same.
“These are really serious injuries and it is now not about talking about which competition they play.
“As far as I know – and I am always open for positive surprises and they all of a sudden turn up in team training but no-one told me that.
“The two of them (Van Dijk and Gomez) look better than Joel as he is still in what looks like ski boots. Joe is not running. Virgil is already running but this is a real tough one.
“We will be completely over the moon when they are ready to train with us for the start of pre-season but the Euros I didn’t think about it.”

Klopp has used various partnerships at centre-back this season but he appears to have settled on Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak for the time being.
The pair started Liverpool’s 2-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig last week and Klopp has all but confirmed they will play at Molineux.
The Reds boss said: “It looked really good. If they are physically ready to go again then why should we change it? That’s clear.
“You want to have consistency and we never had it [this season]. Hopefully they can play a lot of games, if not all of the rest.”
