Klopp confirms Moreno will start against Wolves

Klopp confirms Moreno will start against Wolves Alberto Moreno will be in the Liverpool starting line-up that faces Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed. The Reds boss spoke to the media ahead of his side’s FA Cup third round clash and delivered assurances that the Spanish defender will be handed a rare opportunity to shine. As quoted by Metro, Klopp hailed the left-back as an ‘unbelievable professional’. When asked if Moreno would start against Wolves, he said: “Alberto is another example for being an unbelievable professional person and a really important part of the dressing room. He is from the positive side of the planet I would say.” “I can say Alberto will play as well, there is no doubt about that. He has to play, that’s clear.” The 26-year-old will see his current contract at Anfield expire when the season draws to a close, with no further extension appearing to be on the table. This indicates that the former Sevilla star could move on for free in the summer as he continues to struggle for game-time on a regular basis under Klopp on Merseyside. Nevertheless, it seems Moreno is still held in high esteem by his manager as he prepares to depend on him to help the team advance through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's 2-1 defeat to Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Lovren was one of just two players retained in Klopp's starting XI from last Thursday's defeat to Premier League title rivals Manchester City but he pulled up during the early stages at Molineux.

It meant 16-year-old Dutch defender Ki-Jana Hoever was introduced, becoming Liverpool's youngster ever FA Cup player.

Hoever played alongside defensive midfielder Fabinho at the heart of Klopp's defence as goals from Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves saw Wolves through, and the youngster's countryman Virgil van Dijk is now the Reds' only fit senior centre-back as Joe Gomez (broken leg) and Joel Matip (fractured collarbone) remain in rehabilitation.

Jurgen Klopp has explained why Liverpool are unlikely to sign a new defender this month, despite their problems at the back showing no signs of improving. As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Klopp explained that the club have made a decision on their January business and intend to stick to it. “It is a really difficult problem. I can imagine what people think about this situation but you have to make decisions in moments when decisions are on the table.” Many have urged Liverpool to sign a defender this month after the injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
