There are few Liverpool managers who have lost 6 consecutive games at the hallowed Anfield turf. Sadly the sequence of events has now seen Liverpool drop to 8th in the Premier League table and if things are not amended they could plummet even further.
At this point even a place in Europe next season has come into question. If the Reds are to miss out on a European spot that could be devastating for the club’s finances. It would certainly mean some big names will have to leave and Klopp’s own future would be under question.
The fact of the matter is simple. Jurgen Klopp’s name will be indelible to the supporters of the club. He has achieved remarkable feats with the Reds. However, his inability to stop the Reds slump is a major concern.

The German persists with the high defensive line despite the fact that Liverpool keep getting exposed.
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp need to change things.
In attack the Reds haven’t changed much. And that’s the biggest worry, When things are going tough managers change things quickly in order to overturn the club’s fortunes.
Klopp has not done that. He has maintained the same style and the same format. Time and time again when it was obvious things were not working.
And so far that simple reason alone, Klopp must be questioned on his recent form. Yes he might have won the club some big trophies, but the Reds current form is unacceptable regardless of what their achievements have been.
Of course Klopp is not entirely to blame for the crumbling of his desired dynasty. FSG have been too slow to invest in the club too.
The pandemic has not helped either. As well as the injuries.
But nonetheless, other clubs have been able to cruise through their problems. So injuries cannot continuously be used as an excuse. When the likes of Everton could go nine points above you with their games in hand, you know you are in trouble.
And if that is the case come the end of the season you know you are in trouble. The only way Klopp can rectify this is to win the rest of the matches left this season. The players are certainly capable of it.
