I am an enormous admirer of Mr Klopp and massively appreciate what he has done for the club but lately Iím finding some of his team selection and substitutions curious:

Naby Keita had not started a game for months and has hardly been involved since Christmas yet he starts against Real? Poor Naby really did get thrown in at the deep end.

On Saturday when they badly need a goal he brings on Thiago in place of Gini. I know its a like for like replacement but surely Mane would have been more of a goal threat?

When he did eventually bring on Mane it was to replace Firmino who had looked pretty lively up to that point. Why did he not go with his four best strikers up front when so badly in need of a goal?

Absolutely in Klopp we trust but I do think his recent team selection has been interesting and merits discussion.

Agree, I struggle to understand Klopp's selections these days

Klopp needs a break...I think he needs the time to go back to Germany to properly mourn the loss of his Mother. I believe his judgement has been clouded this season.
