Given the fabulous level of several of his players, Klopp must give the necessary minutes to his players. This, coupled with the fact that the German coach has kept a limited team all season due to injuries, so wanting to avoid more, he will start to rest some players, and this could be reflected against Arsenal, a very important game.

That is why Klopp could start the game against Arsenal with Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota or with some variant like Harvey Elliott. While the level that these four players have shown this season is quite good, this is in priority measures to give a deserved rest to the Uruguayan Darwin Nunez, who after the absence of Mohamed Salah first by call-up with Egypt and then by injury, has been in charge of leading the attack of the Reds.

The Uruguayan ended the year with several negative points, which he has worked on and improved a lot throughout the season, where Nunez is beginning to regain his level that he had shown in Portugal. So Klopp would be looking to take care of the new star of Anfield, as he has played in the last 6 games and in 5 of them as a starter. So he could start as a substitute against Arsenal.

With the Reds, who will play a final, have a chance to continue playing in the FA Cup and Europa League, as well as being leaders in the Premier League, their schedule could remain just as complex and tight for the next few months. So the German coach needs to be smart to make moves to keep the team in order and rest his most fatigued players.

He closed the month with a goal against Norwich on 28 January and one more assist on Wednesday 31 January. Having a total of 4 assists and 3 goals in 7 games in the month of January. Having earned a well deserved rest.
