The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping their side can continue their recent run of form with victory over Southampton on Saturday.
Liverpool head into the weekend fixture having had plenty of time to reflect and improve on their performances prior to the international break. Jurgen Klopp’s side currently sit in 5th position on the cusp of a place in the top-four, and they will be hoping that a run of victories can propel them up the table in the next few weeks.
Klopp will have been eager to make the most of his time on the training field with his players this week, after giving his players an extended break for the majority of last week.
And the club’s official Twitter page gave the onlooking fans a glimpse of the action at Melwood this afternoon…

The video sparked a mixed reaction from the Liverpool fans.
Whilst a handful were impressed by the football on show and amused by Milner’s relentless questioning of his team-mates whereabouts, many were quick to criticise certain aspects of the exercise on show.
Here’s what the fans had to say on Twitter…
Glad to see my man Oxlade-Chamberlain is still chasing shadows.

lmao the playing area is way too big. City play in a square about 2-3 times smaller than that

Lfc are perfectly fine with the players they’ve got. It’s a matter of them all being comfortable playing with each other especially the new players.Give Chamberlain a chance lads he’s trying to ease into the new environment,they are improving as it’s evident in the last few games
