Fans taken aback as Jurgen Klopp names “most ridiculous team ever” for Stoke clash

What's this all about?

Jurgen Klopp loves an adventurous line-up.

But even by his heavy metal, unpredictable standards, this is pretty striking.

For Liverpool’s clash at Stoke on Saturday afternoon, Klopp went all out and when we say “all out” we mean “all out.”

The German named three centre-halves along with Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner, who has essentially played left-back throughout this campaign.

In midfield, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum get the shout while Klopp has opted for the very inexperienced duo of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold to support Divock Origi up front.

Supporters were taken aback by the selection, with some accusing Klopp of fielding a far too weakened side for Premier League level.
