Then on Saturday, it's first versus third as Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge.

This week sees Chelsea Football Club and Liverpool FC lock horns twice in the space of three days.

"When you first come to a country there are a lot of things you have no clue about", he told a news conference.

"It's not about judging which silverware is more important, you can not do it like that". Liverpool fans can not have too many complaints about his absence, considering the fact that they've won their first six games of the season. It's great if you win it, but if you don't, it's just another set of fixtures for you to contend with.

"I was never interested in that, to be honest".

"The boys have to prove themselves constantly, it's not only about me, you constantly have to show you are ready for each competition, and each game".

Klopp's side host Chelsea in the third round of the League Cup tomorrow night. You can not do it like that. It is one competition we have to play, not four, so that's how we will take it; with all concentration, with all focus, with all intensity. Only be there and don't think about where it leads to.

So can drinks which helped an Olympic swimmer set her fastest times in 20 years also help Liverpool to win their first league title in almost 30?

"I don't put pressure on each player that plays tomorrow".

Jose Mourinho tells Paul Pogba he'll never captain Manchester United again
United had got off to the best possible start as Juan Mata finished off a fine move. We know that position is one that requires continued investment to maintain.

"No, I don't think so". That's it. We are not changing these players. That's all we are thinking about. "We will see how he is today and make a decision about him". "That's the only way I know, unfortunately".

Liverpool are still monitoring Virgil van Dijk's minor rib injury that forced him off against Southampton at the weekend, while Dejan Lovren is now back in contention after his pelvis issue.

Five minutes. That's all Fabinho has played in a Liverpool shirt since his summer move.

He needed a mere matter of seconds to find the back of the net after coming on as a substitute against West Ham United on the opening day of the campaign and then headed in the crucial opener against Paris Saint-Germain last week.

These are players not really regarded as first-choice, yet they were determined to impress Jurgen Klopp.

'It is still a bit painful, nothing else. "It's really not complicated, you only need to get used to it", he explained. "That is a really good group, a really strong football team".

Klopp's side are playing with attacking fluidity and Xherdan Shaqiri gave them another attacking option in midfield.

"That's why I said it's quite impressive what he did in that short period (since taking charge at Chelsea)".

"But it will happen, it's not really hard". We are not changing their football personality.
