Klopp Out Of Answers As Liverpool Lose At Home Again

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Liverpool suffered a sixth consecutive home defeat on Sunday, this time to Fulham, as their hopes of securing a top-four finish now look almost over.

Less than a year ago this Liverpool side was being called the best side ever in the Premier League era. But after six home losses in a row for Jurgen Klopp’s side, the decline of this Liverpool side has been astonishing. They are still Premier League champions for the time being, but they are a team in free fall. Their league form, post-Christmas has seen them win just three of their 14 fixtures. They have taken just 12 points out of a possible 42 in that time.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says players cannot be allowed to travel for March’s international break if they have to quarantine when they return.

In the UK at present, anyone returning from coronavirus ‘red list’ countries is required to quarantine for 10 days.

Fifa says clubs can prevent players leaving if they need to quarantine for five days or more on their return.

“I understand the need of the different FA’s but it is a time where you cannot make everybody happy,” said Klopp.

“The players are paid by the clubs so that means we have to be the first priority. You cannot make everyone happy in this period of our lives.

Worrying Times At Anfield

Liverpool’s defeated body language at the final whistle and the resignation in manager Jurgen Klopp’s post match interviews sounded like a club that know that their title defence is over. Liverpool have climbed mountains under Klopp before but they now stand 10 points behind a team which has reeled off 14 successive wins in all competitions. They have also played one game more than City.

Last season, Liverpool caught lightening in a bootle. They were brilliant throughout the season, picking up an almost perfect 67 points from their first 23 games last season.
