'Well done FSG': Liverpool fans bemoan bench options as Klopp names XI for Leeds

Liverpool face Leeds United at Elland Road today and manager Jurgen Klopp has named his starting XI for the clash with the Whites.

The Reds boss was facing uncertainty in midweek, owing to the fact that both Alisson Becker and Fabinho could have been missing thanks to the debacle with the Brazilian FA and FIFA.

Thankfully for Klopp, that has been resolved and the Reds boss has indeed named both in his starting XI today. In attack, Klopp has opted with the usual duo of Salah and Mane, with Diogo Jota starting alongside them.

Ibrahima Konate is once again made to wait to be included in the starting XI, with Joel Matip picked alongside Virgil van Dijk. Andy Robertson is all back once more, while Trent Alexander-Arnold is at right back after his bizarre midfield cameo for England.

With that, here’s what some Liverpool fans had to say about the starting XI Klopp has named for the trip to Leeds.
