Klopp not surprised by drop in confidence

Jurgen Klopp has pointed out that even Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not immune to dips in confidence.

Liverpool have had a difficult start to the season, with a 3-3 draw at home to Brighton on Saturday leaving them with just 10 points.

Napoli also ran out 4-1 winners in their first Champions League outing, putting even more pressure on tonight’s clash with Rangers.

Klopp remains patient but knows the home draw has already become a key game in Group A.

“People may wonder how it is that these players are not full of confidence?” said the Reds boss.

“Do you think Cristiano Ronaldo at the moment is at the peak of his confidence level?”

Prediction

Rangers certainly have the quality to punish any defensive error, but Liverpool owe a big performance at home.

With the Scottish side looking incredibly vulnerable in their opening two group stage matches, the Reds should have plenty of chances tonight.

Liverpool win, 2-1.

Liverpool team news

Ibrahima Konaté could return for Liverpool after recently speeding up his recovery with a return to full training. Andy Robertson, however, is still missing along with Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Calvin Ramsay.

Diogo Jota is pushing for a move away with Luis Diaz, while Roberto Firmino’s fine form might not be enough to see him retain his place with Darwin Nunez also available. The biggest decisions come in midfield, where Harvey Elliott pressures Jordan Henderson to start.

Liverpool predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexandre-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Diaz
