Liverpool predicted XI vs Exeter: Injury crisis forces Klopp to shuffle the pack for FA Cup clash

Posted by

It’s no secret that Liverpool are in the midst of a crippling injury crisis at the moment, as 13 of their first team stars are sidelined with a various number of ailments.

However, cup competitions with lower league opposition is usually the perfect time to blood youngsters and fringe players, and that is exactly what Jurgen Klopp with do for Friday night’s visit to Exeter.

The likes of Kolo Toure, Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren all picked up knocks against Stoke earlier in the week, but Klopp did confirm that Lucas Leiva and Christian Benteke could be involved.

There may also be a debut for defender Tiago Ilori, who was recalled from his loan spell with Aston Villa after failing to impress there.

With a big game against Arsenal coming up, Klopp will be wary of picking up yet more injuries, so a full on rotation will be required, and below is how we think the Reds will line up to meet the League Two side.
