The disappointment of injuries to Jordan Henderson and now Emre Can at least provides fresh opportunities for their replacements to prove their worth, according to Jürgen Klopp.

With an action-packed schedule still ahead this season, there will be plenty of chances for other members of the squad to impress and fill the voids left by the midfield pair.

As he previewed Sunday's clash with Bournemouth, the manager was asked how the Reds might adapt in that area of the field without two of their key men.

Klopp said: "It would have been better if they are still involved of course [because] we have choice, [but] we have [choice] still.

"Everybody could see again when Joe Allen came in [against Borussia Dortmund], so it's a really good opportunity to have him.

"Kevin Stewart is here. [We have] a few very exciting young boys for these centre positions, with Pedro Chirivella and Cameron Brannagan here [too].

"But how it always is, we cannot bring them all together. We have players to play - that's how it is. Then we have to give them confidence that they start believing that they can do it, especially with the young boys.

"Until now, everything is OK. It could be better, but I'm fine."

After the first-leg draw with Dortmund in Germany, Klopp made seven changes to his side for the Reds' most recent Barclays Premier League fixture.

Liverpool went on to comfortably dispatch Stoke City 4-1 last Sunday afternoon, with the likes of Stewart and Sheyi Ojo featuring.

In a busy season juggling different competitions and dealing with many injury setbacks, Klopp believes the players on the fringes deserve plaudits for their contributions.

"They could have thought before the Stoke game 'we never trained together... it's a nice opportunity from the manager' - but they were completely different," he added.

"They were really greedy in this game, they wanted to show it can work and that's the most important thing.

"That's what the young boys really did when, for example, we played West Ham in the FA Cup - I enjoyed these games really.

"It was good and it was really difficult for West Ham then and they play a great season, everybody can see. At the end, they [West Ham] won but it was really easy for us to enjoy.

"The bad thing with our situation was that we had to make a lot of changes, [but] the good thing is that these changes brought up new players."

Following on from Thursday night's heroics against BVB in the Europa League, the boss will consider changes to his starting XI for the trip to the south coast - but only ones that can help secure three points.

"We only want to find the line-up to win at Bournemouth," Klopp continued.

"We know about how difficult it will be, but that's the only thing we think about. [Making changes] is always only because of the game before, so how does he feel, how is he, and is it important to leave him at home?

"I didn't make, until now, the final decisions because we only have two days, so we have to use each minute we have for making these decisions. At the end, it's about the players who play.

"We want to, how I said before the last few games, take everything we can get out of this season - that means be ready for Bournemouth, then be ready for Everton, then ready for Newcastle and then think about the other tournament and not a second earlier. That's what we try to do."
