Liverpool Legend, John Aldridge has warned Jurgen Klopp he must start his best players when his former side meets Manchester United this weekend.
Liverpool are without a win in three Premier League matches – a worrying development, which has played to United’s advantage, as the Red Devils moved three points clear at the top of the Premier League with a win against Burnley on Tuesday.
The rivalry between the two sides is fierce again, and Aldridge believes a win over Olè Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will happen only if Klopp fields the likes of Thiago Alcantara in the encounter.
Speaking under his column for the Liverpool Echo recently, Aldridge wrote, “Team selection is up to the manager but when you’re thinking about the final ball and picking people out in the 18-yard box – Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been magnificent for the last few years.
“And from midfield, there is no better player to see that pass than Thiago. That’s his forte.
“Whoever the manager plays in there – we don’t know as he’s got a lot of options – but at the moment he is the one that’ll see that killer pass more than anyone.”
Meanwhile, Solskjaer has already stated the readiness of his team for the weekend encounter, as he warned he and his boys will not be distracted by going top of the league.
