Jurgen Klopp expects response from ‘angry’ Liverpool players after reminder they ‘don’t live in dreamland’

Klopp is expected to make changes for the Newcastle game, with the first coming at centre-back after Joel Matip was forced off with a groin problem.

Nineteen-year-old Rhys Williams, who did so well deputising during the central defensive crisis of October and November, replaced him against the Baggies and looks set to retain his place at St James’ Park.

With James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri returning to the squad after several weeks out injured and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting more minutes as a late second-half substitute, Klopp has options at his disposal.

“Joel is injured and it’s not the first time that a centre-half is injured,” said the manager.

“It’s of course not good, especially now as he was in a really good shape again, but we cannot change that. We just have to accept it and carry on.”
