Jamie Carragher's tweet during Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

Much has been made of Jurgen Klopp’s decision to heavily rotate his squad this season.

Liverpool have made 65 changes to their starting line-up in the Premier League this season, far more than any other team.

Of course, it’s not hard to understand why Klopp is doing it. Last season, Liverpool’s season almost fell apart in January with their squad looking extremely stretched.

But the manner in which Klopp is ringing the changes is questionable - especially after he left both Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino on the bench for the Merseyside derby and failed to win the match.

That draw may have been an impact on their 0-0 draw with West Brom a few days later.

So, all eyes were on Klopp to see which players he would field for their trip to Bournemouth as they looked for their first win in three matches. And it was ‘just’ the four changes for the Reds.

And while Klopp’s rotation policy has been criticised in recent weeks, Liverpool finally appeared to benefit from it against Bournemouth.

After the first 45 minutes, they were 3-0 ahead with goals from Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Mohamed Salah.

They looked fresh. They looked hungry. And they looked well rested.

Who’s moaning about rotation now?

Carragher's tweet about rotation

Certainly not Jamie Carragher.

He took to Twitter in a throwback to a famous Alex Ferguson quote to write: “Rotation, bloody hell!”

Liverpool went on and scored a fourth in the second-half through Roberto Firmino to complete a very comfortable afternoon.

Of course, Ferguson once coined the phrase: Football, bloody hell!” when he won the 1999 Champions League with Manchester United dramatic circumstances.

"I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell,” he said on that incredible night.
