The Jurgen Klopp era has arrived at Liverpool and the Anfield home of the famous club will be rocking on Thursday night for Klopps first ever home game in charge of the reds. Liverpool face a Ruban Kazan side that have struggled this season and both Liverpool and klopp will be hoping for his first win. On Saturday last the reds put in a very good performance against Tottenham and the effort on the pitch was evident from the start. Liverpool's players on mass ran a kilometer more during the tottenham game than they had in any game under Brendan Rodgers. Obviously the team has taken to Klopp's philosophy and are trying to impress their new manager. Captain James Milner was Liverpool's best player and he will look to lead the reds to victory on Thursday against Ruban Kazan. With Benteke and Sturridge still nto fit I expect Origi to get another start through the center and I think that the Belgian International will be looking to take his chances and cement his place in the side.
For their part Ruban Kazan will be looking to stifle Liverpool when they come to England on Thursday. Ruban Kazan have had a rough start to the season and sit just above the relegation zone. With just three wins in twelve games this is a team that needs to turn their season around soon or will be lookign at a lost season and a relegation battle. This is a tough fixture then for a team out of form and with Liverpool riding the crest of a wave of optimism following the appointment of Klopp this could be a long night for the Russian side.
Taking Liverpool -1 on the handicap here. I have a feeling Jurgent Klopp is going to get the best out of his players here and should pick up his first win as Liverpool manager at Anfield.
