Jurgen Klopp has told his fringe players to be primed for action as he prepares to test Liverpool's squad strength. Klopp named an unchanged starting line-up for the third successive game in Saturday's home game against Brighton and Hove Albion. The Reds maintained their 100% start to the season but were significantly below par in a narrow 1-0 win, with Klopp later admitting there was a lack of intensity from his team.
