They say that a change is as good as a rest. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that, this time, a rest is as good as a change as he prepares Liverpool for their first competitive game in some 17 days.

From the sublime to the….well. After torching Manchester United 7-0, it’s almost impossible to imagine how Liverpool could lose to Bournemouth next time out. That’s no disrespect to the Cherries, who had given Arsenal a mightily tough afternoon the previous weekend, but after walloping your local rivals by seven goals they’re an opponent you simply should not be losing to.
To describe Liverpool’s 7-0 humiliation of Manchester United on Sunday would be perhaps the understatement of the season. The draw was one of the best-backed betting markets before kick-off, and yet the Reds slowly demolished ideas of a stalemate with a vintage second-half performance.
Will the real Liverpool please stand up? There seems to be no logic, pattern, rhyme or reason to their results or performances at the moment, and the fact they are capable of playing as well as they did in the 2-0 defeat of Wolves on Wednesday must leave Jurgen Klopp wanting to tear his hair out.
