Jürgen Klopp has refused to be drawn into Liverpool's problems at left-back, which saw James Milner taking over after Alberto Moreno's performance against Arsenal on the opening day of the season.

The former Dortmund manager conceded that they need a few more additions to the squad, but insists that Milner's proficiency in the position meant that they do not need a left-back this summer.

Milner scored the penalty against Tottenham as the Reds went a goal up in the first half, but failed to stop Spurs from levelling up in the second period with Danny Rose latching on to a loose ball in the final third.

The Reds had multiple chances to double the lead and were denied a second when Sadio Mane's goal was disallowed for being offside.

However, Milner put in a good display at the back and Klopp believes that despite needing more additions in other areas of the field, left-back was a position where they can make do with Milner and Moreno.

Klopp backed the former Manchester City man to acclimatise himself to the role, which he believes encapsulates eight aspects in one, from a winger to a defender.

"We're going to need more players for different positions," Klopp said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo. "The only decision we made is that Milly can play it, especially in the kind of play we think we should play. Full-back is not only a winger in the offensive situations, it's something like eight (roles) in different moments so that's a really good position for Milly.

"He still has to adapt and learn because he's not had 500 games in this position but we will work on it, like we work on every player," Klopp went onto say. "In the end, we were convinced he could play the position and that's why we didn't make the transfer. I'm not surprised he can play there."
