After a humiliating 3-1 loss against Brentford, Liverpool have yet again lost their winning mojo and one of the opposition’s head coach has identified the Reds weaknesses for such inconsistent performances.
Liverpool are in serious trouble. Last week, LFC’s four-game winning run ended in the hands of The Bees. On the other hand, Spurs won their match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, leaving them 5 points off the fifth. While after defeating Bournemouth (3-0), Manchester United are 7 points clear of Liverpool in the top 4.
Liverpool weaknesses exposed?
The Merseyside giants pressure has been further increased by some comments from the opposition coach. According to the article in “the i” this week, journalist Mark Douglas brought word from an unnamed member of the backroom staff of a club who recently encounter Liverpool.
According to him that unknown opposition member claimed,
“They are in transition. It feels like a team that has been together a little too long.”
According to Douglas, the key points are
- Liverpool’s vulnerability on transitions.
- The ease with which they concede clear chances.
- Their frequency of inability to stand up to physicality.
Although this is uncertain which club manager pointed this out. But the source most likely came from either Man City or Leeds. The lack of physicality is a major concern for Klopp’s side.
Remarks of LFC legend
This thing is expressed by the Red’s legend Jamie Carragher
“When I watch Liverpool now, and certain in midfield, it feels like Jurgen Klopp’s team is morphing into something else- a technical team”
reported on Sky Sports.
“The only team that it reminds me of is when I used to play against Arsenal under Arsene Wenger.”
The Merseyside giants are currently in the 6th position. They need to quickly fix their problems unless it’s too late. But there is a ray of optimism with the current signings of the English giants.
The addition of Holland international, Cody Gakpo and ongoing negotiations with Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes will definitely help Klopp in sorting out certain issues.
We are halfway down the season and the Reds Champions League spot is yet uncertain.
