Klopp gives youth a chance to shine

Whilst it was always likely that Klopp would rotate his squad, with nothing riding on tonights game, it's still refreshing to see so many youngsters given a chance in the starting eleven.

With the teams relative in-experience, it will be important for the senior members of the team - Jones, Konate, Gakpo, Endo etc, to show strong leadership qualities, and help the younger players overcome any early nerves.

There is also a special mention for Curtis Jones, who Captains Liverpool tonight for the first time.  Jones is a Liverpool lad through and through, and deserves the honour of leading out his boyhood team.
