Jurgen Klopp has taken his strongest-possible Liverpool squad to Russia for the Europa League match against Rubin Kazan, with the selection of youngsters, including the likes of Pedro Chirivella, Cameron Brannagan and back-up goalkeeper Ryan Fulton, kept to a minimum.

Liverpool, who have had three successive 1-1 draws in Europe this season, at the very least have to avoid defeat in Kazan if they are to avoid a tricky conclusion to their Group B campaign.

The Liverpool manager was reminded of one of his oft-repeated phrases about wanting to play "heavy metal" football at former club Borussia Dortmund when asked how he would describe Liverpool's musical style.

"The problem in my life is I say too many s*** things," Klopp joked.
