Liverpool 'talking to players' but Champions League qualification crucial to summer success

As for Liverpool: Sturridge should start this game, but I doubt he will. Klopp is too stubborn, and just like last week, he'll start Origi, and use Sturridge's injury history as an excuse.

I don't know who taught them how to kick if they're kicking with their shin. Added Thomas: "It's a joke that [Green] said that". "I don't agree with that and what I said is how I feel".
