    liverpool might miss the cl - so tiago went from cl winner to euro league... and klopp teams tend to become slightly worse after some years - look @ bvb 7s season - from 2. to 7. -and in liverpool now from 1. to 6... also they `ve been realy biten by the injury bugg... losing van djik was just devasting... (also guardiola would probably trade his championships for 1cl...)

    Van Dijk,Gomez,Matip,Henderson,Fabinho,Jota all first team players that play a massive part in the way Liverpool attack,When Van Dijk and Gomes/Matip are in defence it allows robbo and trent to charge forward,Fabinho Henderson Wijnaldum protected the back line and wing backs too allow Mane Firmino and Salah freedom to attack.Liverpool Defend and Attack as a unit and when 5-6 first team players are missing any team would struggle,if Man City lost Laporte,Dias,Stones Ricardo and Gundogan all around the same time they would struggle...YNWA

    It is abundantly clear that Klopp thought the first XI would never get injured and keep the same pace for years. To be fair they have done it for the last 3 years but now the squad is so depleated Compared to other teams around them, their subs are so weak- Origi, Jones, Ox, Keita, Adrian. No game changers

    "Worse title defense ever!!" when i heard that i was expecting more than 1 point difference.......... i mean Liverpool don't lose at Anfield and to lose 4 in a row there is some thing really wrong, on top of that the conversion rate has dropped from 22% to 9% so Firmino and mane are having this season off for a rest........... On another note truly great to VVD back in training!! hopefully he will be back training with the first team very shortly and it's looking like late march early April for a return :D

    If there is one thing I have learnt from reading YouTube comments its that their form has nothing to do with several key players being injured and other key players being forced to play out of position, the truth is the team that won the CL one year and the Premier League the next were just faking it the entire time. They have been exposed for Championship level team they truly were all this time...

    I have worked it out Leicester had 53 points after week 25 when they won the title, the following season they had 23 points at the same stage the following year, this season we have 40 points, so we have accrued 17 more points after 25 games so how are we worse?

    There was a time when people were saying that this current liverpool team was better than United's treble winning side.
    United won THE treble, then went on to win the league again by an even bigger gap, and won it yet AGAIN the season after that.
    Liverpool got knocked out of everything last season and have absolutely disgraced themselves this season. It was never even a competition to begin with but its certainly put to bed now.

    They'll be lucky to finish in the top 4, I think. If their injury issues get any worse, they might finish outside of the top 10. Right now, they're in 6th, 5 pts ahead of Arsenal, who are 11th. It's not impossible. And if they finish outside of the top 7, they'll only have domestic football for next season. If that happens, they'll probably lose key players who'll want to play Champions League football.

    What has gone wrong? How about they've lost their 3 most senior centre backs, then two of their most important midfielders from the title winning side have been playing at centre back (instead of midfield) to cover the loss.
    So to recap: from the title winning side of the previous year, they've lost two key midfielders and two key centre backs. 4 key players from the starting 11

    Its not just the injuries thats affecting Liverpool. Teams have figured them out. Liverpool have their winning formula and the first time someone found out how to beat the press was Atletico Madrid last season. Now everyone copies the 5 defenders and 4 in midfield and it works against liverpool as they cant break it down. Now all teams that are against liverpool need one goal and all of a sudden if they do everything right defensively, then Liverpool run out of ideas. Its whats happened when they played against West Brom, Brighton and Everton. If teams sits with 5 defenders. Liverpool really do struggle to beat the compactness of that team.

    not to forget before that United won 3 consecutive league titles 2006-09 and won the CL in 2008.

    Their first team is class.
    They’re backup subs and res, that’s the problem. Klopp only had like 14, 15 players.

    Its easy to say worse title defence in history and then just dismiss the whole situation as to why thats been the case and just brush it aside.. name me another defending champions who had 20 injuries in that defending season 14 of which have been first 11 starters.. and also name me a defending champions who didn't get backed by their owners Manchester united Chelsea and Manchester City always get at least 100 million a season and more for the most part especially if they won the champions league and the premier league all kinds of players would join them... to just ignore how light our squad was even before the injuries and then factor all the injuries to ignore that is just being a hater and disingenuous or simply being dumb.. I can guarantee we won't be this bad next season...
