The Reds will welcome the Toffees to Anfield on Sunday. Liverpool are right in the mix for the title.
“I think Jurgen Klopp might take the emotion out of it,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “He does have to be brave, from now until the end of the season.
“He can’t play the same eight or nine players every game. I think he may look at that game and say ‘I might need to be brave in this game’ and say ‘this is a team that are fourth or fifth from bottom.'
“If we were playing Leeds or Brentford, then I would make five or six changes.
“So, the actual nine he has that are set in stone. Nine or ten. I think we could see a game where there’s maybe (Kostas) Tsimikas comes in. (Roberto) Firmino and (Diogo) Jota play. Maybe Curtis Jones plays because I don’t think he would do that in the two semi-finals.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
We do agree with Carragher's opinion. We don't want to see the best XI players at the club burn out before the season ends.
Liverpool possess a number of quality options in attack, midfield and defence. Therefore, it would make sense for Klopp to rest a few footballers against a struggling Everton team on Sunday.
It will be interesting to see which side the German selects.
