Klopp criticises potential Christmas fixtures

Klopp criticises potential Christmas fixtures”

"If they'd have taken a few more of those chances this season - including against Spartak in the Champions League where they drew 1-1 - the game would've finished three or 4-0". Dejan Lovren has recently returned from a back problem while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been described as suffering from a long-running calf problem. "It's a likely and possible combination of the line-up", Klopp said ahead of Liverpool's league clash against Newcastle. "We have a few knocks, we will see. I'll know, finally, tomorrow probably", Klopp told reporters at Melwood. They're two fantastic clubs - sorry to say this - fantastic teams, fantastic managers, it's clear they will do things really well. For Adam it is completely normal, how we thought it would be.

Jurgen Klopp is unimpressed with the possibility of Liverpool playing on Christmas Eve this season, calling for a common-sense approach.

The game at the Emirates is to be televised on Sky Sports, who are a reportedly considering pushing the fixture back a day, to kick off at 3pm on December 24.

"There's got to be more onus on those forward players for not getting the ball in the net and being more clinical".

"What I have learned is that if there is something not too cool involving fixtures, Liverpool are involved".

"I always said, the broadcasters have to consider is what they sell depends on the quality and freshness of the players".

Liverpool would be left facing a gruelling four games in nine days as a result of Sky's attempts to shift the game to a 4pm kick-off on December 24. "I really think it's no problem for people to be very concentrated on important nights on something other than football".

"If they have to play 24 Dec, then I'm not sure we can fight against it?"

"If they really want to bring supporters on the street, and at night, if they really want to bring all the people who work for television away from home and at night, then we are the last ones in the row to say something about this". Maybe we could play without media?
