consistency considering the club’s current situation facing too many injuries.

He has also talked about Fabinho’s return and whether he will play as a midfielder or a defender:

“Both is possible! That is good, it gives us options. But if we can find a way to bring Fab back in midfield that would be in some games quite helpful.

"The most consistent player probably this season is Gini Wijnaldum [knocks on wood], and long may it continue. He played the number six, all the positions, but with Fab in the number six in some games would be absolutely helpful.

"But both things are really intense, center-half or number six. In the past we had to bring players almost immediately because another player left the pitch injured in the game before. Now we don’t have to do that for the first time.

"But there are still a lot of games to play, so we will see. Is Fab ready to start or is he only ready for the bench? Then which position? These decisions are still to make and if I would have made them already, I wouldn’t tell you exactly what the decision is! So let’s see."

And about the Reds’ position in the table he added:

“I think a week ago we were out, now we are around again so for us the challenge and the job is clear, We have to win games, as many as possible, to make it in the top four.

"But there are other teams, our neighbors, Tottenham, West Ham, Leicester and maybe [Manchester] United not really involved anymore, and City is already gone. For the neutrals it is exciting, for the Liverpool fans it is exciting, maybe not as we want, but we will give it a proper try."
