Ahead of the powerful clash tomorrow, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is hoping that his squad can recover from the shock of losing to Wolverhampton Wanderers and bounce back against in-form Chelsea in the Premier League at Anfield on Tuesday night.
The Reds struggled vehemently against their Championship opponents as Wolves scored the opener inside the first minute, before Andreas Weimann finally doubled the Wolves’ lead.
And even though the German coach introduced the trio of Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge in the attempt of a comeback, it was Divock Origi who could only score a late consolation with just five minutes left to play.
Fans are not presently pleased, and Liverpool however have the chance to make amends when they host Premier League leaders Chelsea on Tuesday night.
Klopp speaking at his post-match media conference on Saturday evening after Liverpool’s FA Cup shocking defeat stated:
“Hopefully we [all] can recover and the crowd can recover, and look forward to the game on Tuesday.”
“It’s a home game against the leader of the league and we need everyone for the game.” he told Sky Sports.
Last season when Brendan Rodgers was still boss at the Anfield club, Liverpool finished in eighth position in the Premier League table.
Jurgen Klopp took over the mantle of leadership from Brendan Rodgers back in October 2015 and is hoping to overhaul Chelsea in the title race.
