Point it out all you want, historically having tonnes of players is not Klopps approach. He has a small close knit first 18 or so with some experience and youth filling in gaps.Don't know how many times I'm going to have to point out our number of games likely to be around 60 plus. 2 positions that's 120 starts or more for 3 players (Trent, Robertson and new FB to play both sides) that's around 40 starts each, more than Trent made this season (38), more than Klopp let a new signing like Fabinho make too (30). In attack its even more so 3 positions its 180 starts or more to cover. This season Salah, Mane and Firmino started 137 games without much rest and without any major injuries so already a new signing could start as many as 43 games if Klopp let a new signing do that (unlikely) even if we still played the front 3 into the ground like we have the last 2 seasons (unhealthy).
How many games does Messi play? Or Ronaldo? Or any great player? They play when fit 99 times out of 100 because they want to, they want minutes to break records, they strive to be the best and will do everything to achieve it.
