​Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted to having a tough time choosing Liverpool starting XI. 

Liverpool players face tough competition for a starting place and this has made Klopp very happy, as he sees this as an indicator of squad strength.

'The more players I have, the more difficult choices there are for me but the better it is for LFC,'

Liverpool faced Derby in EFL 3rd round, with players like Loris Karius and Marco Grujic starting for the first time for the Reds.

Emre Can was also involved after suffering an injury which kept out of the Chelsea match, In the other hand players like Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, Wijnaldum and Daniel Sturridge were given a rest.

'Can's fitness is not a problem. He has a strong mentality and fight but it is about rhythm - we can't go into a shop and buy rhythm.

'I don't rush it and Emre is cool about it.'

Danny Ings also featured from the bench, after missing the hole last season with an knee ligament injury.

It was a difficult time (for him), I know this but, like all the others, he's on a really good way and everybody can see this,' the Reds boss added.

'We will see what will happen, but he's still an important player for us and it's all good.'
