After an impressive performance from a much-changed Liverpool side ended in a 4-1 win over Stoke City last weekend, Jurgen Klopp admitted he faces some difficult choices when it comes to picking the starting lineup for Thursday’s clash with Borussia Dortmund.
The manager made seven changes to the starting XI for the Premier League meeting with the Potters on Sunday afternoon at Anfield but saw his team run out comfortable 4-1 victors.
Attention now turns to the second leg of the UEFA Europa League quarterfinal series against BVB, which is perfectly poised after the 1-1 draw at Signal Iduna Park last week.
Asked if Sunday’s showing might lead to some selection headaches, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “That’s a good thing if I have to think about the lineup or something. That’s what I do most of the time, to be honest!
“If all players play like this then I have to make hard decisions. That’s not my hobby but that’s the best thing to do as a manager and hopefully we have to make hard decisions for Thursday.”
