Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp must fix three things in two weeks for Premier League return | Football | Sport

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hopes his players manage to get some much-needed positive momentum in the Premier League when club football returns after the World Cup next month. The Reds have left a lot to be desired during the campaign so far and are currently outside the top five in the division having won just six of their 14 matches.

Injury problems have once again plagued Liverpool’s efforts in recent months and they have also lacked consistency in achieving regular victories, with their shortcomings virtually all of them out of the Premier League title race for half of the campaign this season. All hope is not lost at Anfield, however, with enough games left to redeem themselves and secure Champions League qualification as an absolute minimum requirement.

It will be important for Klopp to gather his players on the training ground in the coming weeks and the German manager could benefit from giving his attacker more cohesion ahead of their next Premier League game against Aston Villa. Liverpool are currently without Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota through injury, but will look to ramp up their training schedules in the not too distant future as they seek a return to the field as a priority.

Several of Liverpool’s attacking stars did not travel to Qatar for the World Cup, with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino missing out alongside Diaz and Jota. Darwin Nunez played for Uruguay, but the group stage elimination will see him back at Anfield earlier than expected, giving Klopp plenty of training opportunities as the Reds prepare to resume their Premier League campaign with a bang.

The Liverpool boss will also be keen to regain the intensity his side have become known for over the years, having failed to match their past performances so far this season. They lacked an instinctive lead on several occasions, which is reflected in their statistics, with the Reds averaging just one goal per game away from home and going unscored in nearly a third of their matches since the start of the campaign.

Liverpool have also struggled at times to contain attacks from their opponents, with their typical high-pressing style not having the same effect as in previous years. It will be crucial for Klopp to find a solution in the coming weeks if he is to seriously lead the Merseyside giants, who are in desperate need of a watertight run of form, before the season comes to a close. .


The two-week window before the end of the World Cup is also the perfect opportunity for Klopp to further motivate his players, with his entire squad likely to play a role as the business end of the Premier League season approaches. The 55-year-old hopes players like Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will battle in training after returning from their respective injury layoffs. the fixture list forces Klopp to change sides regularly.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will be able to fly out of the blocks after the World Cup comes to a close, although behind closed doors Klopp will do everything he can to improve the club’s fortunes in the coming days and weeks. No doubt he will be hard at work with the players already at his disposal until at least the January transfer window when he could be tempted to dive into the market to improve his on-field options ahead of the run-up to the Premier League.
