There is no getting away from the fact that Liverpool are in dire straits.
The Reds slipped to their fourth successive home defeat in the league for the first time since pre-second world war times, having lost to local rivals Everton 2-0 at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Goals from Richarlison early in the first half and a controversial penalty from Gylfi Sigurdsson ensured that the visitors took the three points and extended Jurgen Klopp’s miserable run.
Despite this, well-respected journalist for The Times Henry Winter had his say on Liverpool’s current predicament.
Klopp has led the Reds to the pinnacle of club football, winning both the Champions League and the Premier League in the space of 13 months and during a global pandemic.
Winter was quick to remind supporters who had their doubts about the German tactician to remember what he has achieved at Anfield. Here is what he said on Twitter after the full-time whistle:
Klopp’s the best thing to happen to #lfc in years. Rebuilt team, rebuilt belief, transformed club behind the scenes, sports science, nutrition etc. Won European Cup and the title, playing fabulous football. Klopp’s absolutely the right man to lead them through this current storm.

Transfer Tavern Verdict
There have been far too many knee-jerk reactions to this tricky spell for Liverpool. It was well documented that their impeccable run over the past two seasons was going to come to an end at some point.
Winter has hit the nail on the head. Klopp has turned the red half of Merseyside into a European powerhouse and a team that is feared across the globe.
We believe too much finger-pointing is taking place at this time. In reality, the supporters need to come together and back the manager to the very end, regardless of where they end up finishing this season.
