Liverpool know they are likely to win the Premier League with months to spare, and to extend their season they must progress in the Champions League.
But Adrian’s performance in the FA Cup defeat at Chelsea , where he was at fault for both goals, is a huge concern for the game against the Spaniards where any goals conceded could prove costly.
Klopp though, wants his team to respond by showing the resilience at determination that has seen them drop only five points in the Premier League all season – and he wants a show against Bournemouth on Saturday.

“I cannot ignore or deny we do not feel (hurt) that we lost three in three different competitions. It is there, ”he said.
“ But we have always shown a reaction, and we should show this time as well. And with all respect to Bournemouth – real respect – this is our game. We have to show that.
“We should not be surprised if they have shots, crosses and set-pieces, but in the most decisive parts of the game we have to be dominant. That is what we prepare and want to show again.

per cent, we need resilience now, but you always needs more of that. The fabulous football builds on resilience, stability, defensive readiness.
“At this moment it is how we have to do it. I liked a lot of things at Chelsea. Our build up was good against a high pressing team – apart from one situation. The midfield play was good. It is all there and we have to use it. ”
Klopp hinted he will make more changes with the likes of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, Gini Wijnaldum and Trent Alexander-Arnold returning, while James Milner could also start.
