The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a quick turnaround in their side’s form…
It’s been a tough few weeks for the Reds, and things have gotten even worse over the last day or two.
A dominant defeat at the hands of Leicester City in the Carabao Cup sent the Reds crashing out of the competition, leaving the fans in the Transfer Tavern feeling very disappointed indeed.
It was a game that the club were expecting to win comfortably, but that didn’t happen, and unfortunately for Jurgen Klopp – he’s got to do it all again this weekend.
In a strange coincidence, the Reds are set to take on Leicester City once again this weekend in the Premier League, and whilst a win will be expected, that may have to happen without a few important players.
Ahead of the game, Klopp has confirmed that the trio of Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Emre Can are all doubts for the game. Though none of them have major injuries, small niggles and problems are causing issues and could pose a threat to their chances of featuring, and that’s a worry for the Reds.
Matip and Lovren’s injuries, in particular, are a problem – as their absence would leave the club very short on defensive depth for the game.
It’s the last thing that Jurgen Klopp needed ahead of what is a must-win clash for the Reds, and so the German will have his work cut out this weekend.
Missing a few players isn’t good news at the best of times, but it’s particularly concerning given that each member of the team is vital to proceedings at Anfield, particularly in such an important game.
The game is important for a number of reasons. They’ll want to get payback on the Foxes, of course, but given that they have struggled in the Premier League lately, anything but a win could see them drift further back in the title race.
The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for a win.
