The Mirror reports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is ready to reshuffle his backline following their latest defensive humiliation.

A series of avoidable errors led to the Reds suffering a 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Dejan Lovren, substituted before half time, was the main culprit, but Klopp will make changes across the back five, according to The Mirror.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to start Saturday’s visit of Huddersfield Town at right-back, and Loris Karius will be given a run in goal at the expense of Simon Mignolet.

Joe Gomez will be shifted inside to partner Joel Matip at centre-back. The Cameroonian who, along with Alberto Moreno, will be the only defensive survivors of the Wembley debacle.

While the performance at Spurs made it clear that changes were needed, Klopp is gambling on youth to make things better.

Alexander-Arnold and Gomez are both under the age of 21, while 24-year-old Karius is still inexperienced for a goalkeeper.

After hosting Huddersfield, Liverpool welcome Maribor to Anfield and then travel to West Ham United.

Klopp will hope his new-look lineup has improved Liverpool’s defending by the international break.
