This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that.

Liverpool v Chelsea Preview: Key Battles

Liverpool v Chelsea Preview: Key Battles

An all-too-familiar second-half capitulation against Sevilla in the Champions League means that recent optimism has given way to the same old concerns for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans alike. But for now, there is no time to brood on recent failures. The fixtures now start coming thick and fast, and first up for the Reds, is a mouthwatering fixture against Chelsea at Anfield. The return of N'Golo Kante seems to have galvanised the champions, who are on their best run …

Klopp the innovative tactician in Germany has been well documented. But what about Klopp the tactician at Liverpool?
