'It was not a gamble': Klopp explains sweeping lineup change for Fulham game

Mohamed Salah, Alexis Mac Allister, Ibrahima Konate and other regular starters were left on the bench for Liverpool's game against Fulham.

Speaking after the 3-1 win, Jurgen Klopp explained his thinking by the schedule.

"I’m really happy with today, we made these changes because we were 100 percent convinced we had to, it was not a gamble. We play on Wednesday and then Saturday," Klopp said.

"On Saturday, we are already in London again, which is crazy enough, that’s how it is.

"We needed to make these changes before players give me the obvious sign, 'sorry, I’m done'."

The Reds are back in action on Wednesday already, and it won't be just any game: Liverpool will be at Goodison Park against Everton. Naturally, some of the best players were rested for the derby.
