Liverpool fans react to Klopp’s plans for squad break

Liverpool are within touching distance of glory this term.

The Reds are currently 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League and have a game in hand on second-placed Manchester City. They are now 17 games away from their first league title in more than two decades – and not only that, they are also still in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

The big fat Liverpool quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Anfield?

In January 2019, by how many centimetres were Liverpool denied scoring a goal against Manchester City?

After so many games – the Anfield outfit have already played 35 matches so far this season – a break could do some weary legs in the team the world of good. The Evening Standard’s Liverpool correspondent David Lynch has now revealed that Jurgen Klopp will give his players a week off if they can beat Shrewsbury in the next round of the FA Cup.

That appears to have gone down very well with lots of the club’s supporters.

If they do get the job done against Shrewsbury, then a break could give them just the time they need to rejuvenate.

One fan is not as confident that this is the right idea though, claiming that they simply need to keep their foot on the throttle for the time being.

The last thing Klopp will want to instil in his side is complacency, so this fan can rest assured that this is not a decision that will have been taken lightly.

There are others who believe this is extremely bad news for Shrewsbury, with one fan in particular claiming that the Reds are going to “destroy” them.

With a week off as a carrot, that could give the Reds an even stronger desire to win, but it remains to be seen whether this potential decision pays off in the long-term.

In other news, this key battle could decide Liverpool’s match against Manchester United this weekend.
