But he didn't make a mistake, he rested some players, we got knocked out the cup then won our next league game maintaining that gap we have at the top.
So Klopp's decisions totally justified!!
Also he was all set to leave Lovren on the bench, then hendo & lallana got injured or sick, not sure which.
And then Lovren got a hammy, imagine if VVD had played and got a hammy, ffs all hell wld have broke lose, season over etc.
We came thru a crazy december league fixture list with maximum points, the 1st team was knackered, injured & some had some sickness bug, klopp had no choice but to make those changes, and in the end that team only lost due a very very very good goal.
The biggest disappointment for me was sturridge that night, but even that klopp said he never intended on starting sturridge & Origi together, but injuries and sickness forced his hand.
Its gone now, and as discussed many many times now, league, champions league and top 4 are bigger priorities now for the top teams than the FA cup and League cup. Tell you what as well, we have not had easy draws in recent years in the FA cup eh. then look at city getting burton ffs.
