Sarri wants the playmaker back for the Liverpool game

Liverpool face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night

Saturday's Premier League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge may be the priority this week and he might be right to think like that, but he has a squad with enough depth to ensure he can be ambitious in his team selection in this first game against the Blues. It's about positioning; it's about reaction, about spaces defensively, closing them, offensively using them.

Although Jurgen Klopp remains cautious, batting away any talk of winning the Premier League title, others are beginning to wonder just what might be possible for Liverpool. "That is a really good group, a really strong football team". We are really competitive, and we really want to win the game. So, you have natural runs in a team.

"When I came in I think my first [cup] game was Bournemouth and everybody here told me you play the kids or whatever. It's a normal game, people are coming to the stadium, so what you need is all there, so let's exactly do it like that".

"Three or five weeks sound like a long time in football, but to improve something you can give half a year, to really make the next step".

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk gestures during their Premier League match against Southampton at Anfield, Liverpool, September 22, 2018.

Liverpool are in the midst of a hard stretch of games which has seen them beat Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-German and Southampton so far, but after the two Chelsea games they will travel to Napoli in the Champions League before hosting Manchester City in a huge Premier League clash.

It's reported that Warnecke has agreed to work alongside the club's nutritionist Mona Nemmer to ensure that Klopp's squad is firing on all cylinders.

"Whoever we would have played tomorrow night, after the game we would only then start to prepare for the one on Saturday - and that's exactly how we do it now".

Both managers are expected to make a number of changes to their first XI in midweek as they will try to keep their players well rested for the crucial league encounter. I couldn't name one player in the moment who is not training on their highest level.

"There are only two competitions per week".

"It is a completely different competition and a coincidence that we play them again in a few days. It depends on us how long we will play them".
