Natural drop off in performance after 3 years of excellence, injuries, lack of cover for injuries, lack of tactical versatility.

The impact of losing the top 3 CBs and using your best DMs as CB replacements disrupts almost half the team. Man City complained hard enough about losing only 1 CB for a season.

I find it funny how they show the worse point drop-offs by previous league champions because it shows that nearly every season since 2014/15 someone takes a new top spot (bar Man City) so who's to say Man City won't next year?

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
K2edg Πριν 3 ημέρες
"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

He just stumbled upon something the premier league wasn't ready for when becoming Liverpool manager but he was never really that good.. I just think this has been coming for a while, managers don't just become geniuses by changing from Germany to England.. I'm sure from now on it will be like Dortmond all over again

If there is one thing I have learnt from reading GRpost 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?

Sick of hearing this debate as if it's a mystery. They have their best midfielders who provide energy and breakup play in CB. Obviously they shouldn't lose to teams like Burnley and Brighton but man city are probably the only ones who ain't lost games like that.

What Πριν 5 ημέρες
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.
