James Milner: Liverpool's FA Cup loss disappointing not a blessing

Keita is yet to score a goal for Liverpool

When Dejan Lovren limped off injured within minutes of kick-off, the Croatian was replaced by academy defender Ki-Jana Hoever (born January 18, 2002), who came on to make his senior debut at the tender age of just 16 years and 354 days.

The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno and Naby Keita were all given their chances and none of them proved a point to Jurgen Klopp.

It's disappointing that the Reds are out of another cup competition, but Klopp is entitled to use the full depth of his squad and players such as Moreno and Simon Mignolet deserve to have a chance to play.

"In the league [we are in a good position], yeah, but obviously that's not what we've thinking about".

Hoever's introduction meant Liverpool played the majority of the match with a 16-year-old debutant and a Brazil midfielder, Fabinho, as their central-defensive partnership.

Either way, Jurgen Klopp clearly has the FA Cup far down on his list of priorities, and with the opportunity to end a 28 year wait for a league title, could you blame him?

"We need them back but you can not buy a fifth centre-half and say "so you play two weeks and after that the others come in".

"I don't know in this moment".

Lovren went down with a hamstring problem and Klopp was unable to say how bad it was, but with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip already out it's vital that he gets back into the side as soon as possible.

Liverpool have won just one trophy in the current decade.

Liverpool went on to lose 2-1 at Molineux and it has now been confirmed that the defender will also have to miss their upcoming fixture with Brighton.

With the Champions League not set to continue until mid-February, Liverpool can now just concentrate exclusively on the Premier League. "We have to make sure we bounce back and look at where we can get better", he said. Until then we will make all the fitness work. "Then he has to get rhythm and everything will be fine".
