Steve....yes Clopp dropped a clanger there.
There was plenty of warnings for him in the previous week.
Man United made 9 changes against lowly Reading which nearly came unstuck. Like Liverpool last night the changes made for a poor game as United struggled to gather some kind of organisation, but they couldn't put two passes together and were outplayed for most of the game by a shot-shy Reading team.
There were a number of other " surprises where managers made unnecessary changes to try to save their teams for oncoming league games.
That's all well and good if it comes off, but Clopp is going to be very sorry if these future games don't come out as he wants.
City will be chasing them hard in the league and Europe will soon be on the menu.
Who knows what this result will do to the players.?
Besides, your point of satisfying the fans is GOOD ONE.
PS we have to go to Arsenal in the next round, I would have preferred
