Jurgen Klopp believes his side has much quality despite missing key players in the team.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says they have never doubted the quality of the squad despite the absence of key players.

The Reds defeated Cardiff City 3-1 in the FA Cup to progress to the next round of the competition.

The German after the game stated that they have full faith in the squad despite Salah and Mane representing their country side in the AFCON.

New signing Luis Diaz came in as a substitute in the game and also got an assist to make is debut a memorable one.

“We had exactly the same squad before, as well. Luis came in and Nat and Neco left, Harvey came back as well, so when they are all fit we have a really good squad, but we’ve never said anything different.

“A really good squad and then we have to use that, of course, but it never happened really that they were all fit, it’s now the first time maybe. Let’s hope tonight nothing happens in the game in Africa and stuff like this and the two boys come back [fit] as well. We were never in doubt about the quality of our squad, that’s it.

“I hate to talk about these kind of things because the next day I get a message saying something is not like it was before, but if they are all fit we have a good squad. Today, in this moment, it looks like they are all fit – even Divock Origi trained last week with the team.

“He was not ready for the squad yet but is in full training from now on, so yes that’s positive. But again, that’s this moment, let’s see what kind of news I get tomorrow and from there we go.

“We play Thursday against Leicester, we play Sunday against Burnley and then Champions League and all this kind of stuff, so the games are coming really thick and fast and we have to be ready for that. The more players we have fit and available, the better it is, but that doesn’t win football games because other teams have good squads as well, so you have then to do the right stuff on the pitch – and that’s what we have to do.”
