Crowded fixture list should not be a reason for January buys. - Klopp.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he doesn't intend to rush into the transfer market just because they have an crowded fixture list.

The Reds have been hit with injuries to key players and have been choked with accumulated fixtures during a short period after earning an FA Cup replay with West Ham and booking a place in the Capital One Cup final.

"It should not be the reason [to sign players], one game more," Klopp told the club's website. "Since the last game against West Ham, we have had three or four games more. But we could rest the team that played against Stoke.

"They had today off and that's good, so we will again have fresh legs against Leicester. That's the good news. In this moment the draw doesn't feel too brilliant, but when we go to West Ham, we will see the chance to go into the next round again.

"It's an intensive time. Hopefully, one player or other will come back from injury in the next few weeks and then we'll have enough players.

"For what happens in the transfer market, you have to wait in the next 48 hours and we will see if something happens or not."
