The match against Chelsea made it clear that even though Liverpool has a full squad with injuries and 11 players out of action due to injury, they are ready to compete against any team, even if this one has a much higher value in terms of squad. During this match, Klopp made more changes than Mauricio Pochettino, which was decisive for the Reds' victory.

So under this idea, Klopp would start the FA Cup matchday 5 with the hero of the match against Chelsea in goal, Caoimhim Kelleher, while the central defenders would be Jarrell Quansah, who would be in place of Virgil Van Dijk, to give rest to the captain, while the second defender would be Joe Gomez, to give a good stability to the lower area.

While the defenders on the right side would be the young Conor Bradley, who had a brief rest against Chelsea to be the second change of the Reds, while on the left sector would be the return to the starting lineup of Kostas Tsimikas after his injury. The midfield would be occupied by mostly youth players as Wataru Endo is out and Klopp will not want to risk Alexis Mac Allister.

The midfield will be occupied by the young players James McConnell, Bobby Clark and Harvey Elliott as the most experienced in this sector. While the Reds attack would be occupied by Cody Gakpo, who would be the leader of this attack on the left side, as he would also be accompanied by young players such as Kaide Gordon who will be on the right side and Jayden Danns as center forward.

Another opportunity to show

Although Jürgen Klopp seems to be using his only alternatives, the German coach has given great opportunity during all this season to the youth, so this, to a greater or lesser extent, was already part of Klopp's plan, who in the face of constant injuries has to look for solutions with the youth, who will have the opportunity to make history and lead this team to another final in the FA Cup.
