Jürgen Klopp has explained why every member of the Liverpool squad has a crucial role in maintaining the team's form – whether they are in the starting XI or not.
The Reds are currently on a four-match winning run and will try to extend that streak further against Swansea City on Saturday, before the international break pauses play.
With no European football this season, Klopp and his backroom staff have more time to work with the players during the week and less rotation is often required come matchday.
But the efforts of every man in each training session are vital to ensure the team is at maximum intensity, according to the boss.
“They are all involved all the time, that’s how it is,” Klopp said ahead of the journey to the Liberty Stadium for a lunchtime kick-off.
“With no cup game in the middle of the week we always have a week for training and we work together to try to have a high intensity in all parts of the game – concentration, readiness, levels, all this stuff.
“Every player is important for this and every player is involved. I don’t say this to keep them cool and calm – it is the truth.
“If we stop working hard on this part of the game then we cannot make the next step that we 100 per cent have to do.
“With starting line-ups we always talk about the present, the moment, but we all have to be ready for anything that can happen in the next two or three weeks.
“It is very important they are all in very good shape and that’s how it is in this moment.”
