Mark Lawrenson believes Jurgen Klopp’s squad depth will allow Liverpool FC to do well during the busy festive schedule.

The Reds kick off the Christmas period with a trip to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon in search of a fifth win in six Premier League games.

Liverpool FC have beaten Huddersfield Town, West Ham United, Southampton and Stoke City thanks to a return of 13 goals and three clean sheets in their last five outings.

Klopp’s side are in fifth place in the table and two points adrift of Arsenal in the final Champions League qualifying spot.

Liverpool FC will only face one top-seven team – Arsenal – in their next eight Premier League games before the visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City on 14 January.

Klopp has enjoyed the luxury of rotating his squad in recent weeks with the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer Mohamed Salah dropping to the bench on Wednesday night.

The summer signing scored twice in the final 20 minutes of their 3-0 win after being brought on as a second-half substitute.

Former Reds defender Lawrenson backed Liverpool FC to do well during the Christmas schedule.

Liverpool FC are looking to qualify for the Champions League in back-to-back seasons for the first time since Rafael Benitez was in charge at Anfield.
