Losing to West Ham United and then 15 days later, losing against Manchester United aren’t easy defeats to sustain but these are the kind of results that Liverpool have been going through and criticism have already been deployed to JurgenKlopp who was appointed as the head coach of the English club less than 6 months ago.
The recent loss that Liverpool experienced against Manchester United was a frustrating one as the team of JurgenKlopp was the better team and they actually performed at a high level but still couldn’t avoid losing against Manchester United with Wayne Rooney scoring the only goal of the entire game which sealed all 3 points for the squad of Louis van Gaal.
Liverpool has one of the worst shot to goal ratio’s in the entirety of the Premier League and this is evidence of just how much the players of JurgenKlopp have been struggling to score goals. Their match against Manchester United was a clear example of how much Liverpool has been struggling to finish off games and score goals consistently.
JurgenKlopp’s men launched a total of 19 shots and 4 of them were on target meanwhile Manchester United fired 7 shots with only 1 of those actually being on target but even though it was only 1 shot, it was all that the visiting team needed to seal the victory.
Injuries is another thing that has troubled Liverpool in this season as JurgenKlopp has had to utilize his back-up players for a number of games due to his key figures being unable to play.
Although Liverpool have clearly not been in the best shape of their lives, the performances in the team of JurgenKlopp are better than what they used to be even though the results have not shown it. A loss against Manchester United is not what Liverpool deserved as they were the overall better team but due to poor finishing, they couldn’t seal the deal.
It’s believed that a striker is on the wish-list of JurgenKlopp as he wants to sign an attacking player who can bring life to the offensive department of the Premier League club which can help solve some of the issues that the team is experiencing and even though Liverpool might not be able to secure a top 5 finish in the Premier League in this current season, Klopp has already made an impact in the team and he deserves breathing space for him to make mistakes and learn from them.
