Liverpool have had a lot of standout performers this season, but there have also been a couple of players who have not been up to scratch.
Given Liverpool’s squad and lack of depth in key positions, Jurgen Klopp will be pleased as to how well his side have performed over the course of the season.
There are also a couple of players, who when provided opportunities, albeit limited, have not taken their chances under Klopp and will have wanted to make more of an impact in the minutes they were handed.
With that being said, here are two Liverpool players that have struggled under Klopp this season…
Lallana has struggled with injuries and fitness throughout the season but when he has got game time, in his 13 appearances, of which just four have been starts, he has not caught the eye sufficiently to stake a claim for a regular starting spot.
Even with a lack of creativity in midfield at times, which Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will certainly address when he returns from injury, other players have been ahead of the Englishman so, for regular game time, where he can once again heavily influence games, he may have to look elsewhere.
Sturridge started the first month of the campaign brightly as he netted four times before October and that came as he was playing second fiddle to Roberto Firmino up top.
Since then, Sturridge is yet to score again in limited cameo appearances as he has clearly struggled to impact Klopp’s decision-making regarding his starting side.
Despite his limited appearances, he must take his chance when it comes and prove that he should be starting for Liverpool, otherwise, like Lallana, for regular opportunities he should look elsewhere than Merseyside.
