Bad season from Jurgen Klopp
The ‘Reds’ are currently ninth in the Premier League standings,19 points behind the leader,Manchester City. Never in recent years have they been so far from the leader at this point in the season and, above all, without there being a team clearly escaped in the standings. One of the most worrying data is the number of goals this team concedes, up to 28 at this point, more than seven other teams in thePremier League. The same happens with the number of chances allowed, more than 50, in numbers similar to Fulham and Leeds United, the worst in the competition in this regard.
Injuries from the Liverpool side
Injuries have contributed a lot to this, in all parts of the field. Luis Díaz has been away for many months and Diogo Jota too, although the Portuguese was able to play a few minutes against Everton. Liverpool also has suffered the injuries of Jordan Henderson y Arthur Meloin midfield and Ibrahima Konaté and Virgil Van Dijk in the center of defense. In fact, Jurgen KloppHe may have to resort to an unprecedented defense if neither arrives in top form for the first leg of the tie, which remains to be seen.
