Emre Can should make his first start after injury

With Liverpool set to take on Derby in the League Cup on Tuesday night, it offers an opportunity for the likes of Danny Ings to get a chance.

Reds manager Klopp spoke about the striker’s good attitude.

“Danny is working hard and good, but the situation is like it is, we have a lot of strikers,” Klopp stated at a news conference ahead of the EFL Cup encounter with County.

Though, with no European competition this season, Liverpool have a chance to play their strongest teams in the Cups. Ings could find himself on the sidelines there too as even Divock Origi needs more game time.

“He is close … what can I say? He is a wonderful boy. It is not the easiest thing when a player works really hard and then he is not involved, so of course you want to give the player something back.

“It is not always possible, but as soon as it is possible, I will pay him back [for his good attitude].”

In other good news, the Reds will welcome back Emre Can after suffering ankle problems in recent months.
