vastly overrated.

Until the last 2 seasons, he wasn't rated by many people. Jordan Henderson did the dirty work in midfield and cleaned up when required. If you think he is underrated, you know nothing about football.

Liverpool's best 5 options at CB are:

1) Van Dijk
2) Gomez
3) Matip
4) Fabinho
5) Henderson

All of whom are injured.

No team could cope with that.

No matter where Liverpool finish, Klopp deserves to keep his job after what he's done over the last 5 years. Judge him again next season when he actually has the players to do something.

Such a funny post. The CBS are the reason they haven’t been able to score at their own stadium? The team doesn’t have depth, when they were firing on all guns last season, it worked, now they aren’t, and there’s no one who’s been given the opportunity in the last 2 years to shine (Minamino, Origi, Shaqiri). So they enter with 50% confidence and don’t perform.

3) Matip

Argueable, in themselves they are the best options, but playing Hendo & Fabinho takes too much away from the midfield. As defensive midfielders they're way ahead of the rest. It has created more problems than it solved.

People can say that every team has injuries, but to have your best three CBs injured, plus your two back-up CBs injured is extremely unlucky.

I think Liverpool's problem is their squad depth. Their best 11 is arguably the best in the league, but their overall squad is far from it.

Perfect summary
I agree the squad lacks depth but trying to cope with the loss of your first 5 choices in central defence would cause every team a problem....even Man City (who are the strongest by far)

I would counter this and say that it is Liverpool’s style of play combined with the fixture congestion that has done this and it isn’t just luck.

Yes you have nailed it. You are right

Because klopp has average academy & U23 players and has to buy every player, he shouldn't spend a £150mil fortune on 2 players and then moan EVERY day about basically 2 key players missing

We all like to think our team is the best but comparing LFC's strongest 11 and MC's strongest 11, I think City have it by a whisker because of the quality in midfield that Liverpool don't have. Other areas of the pitch they are on a par. City also don't rely on only their forwards to score goals either. Liverpool's midfield need to chip in more than they do.
185
26/02/2021 11:17:48 9 7

Extremely unlucky, yes. But they only won the league last year because they have been extremely lucky with injuries for the last two seasons. It all evens out.
Having said that, they've had a transfer window where they could have remedied their situation. Any talk of injury crisis as an excuse at this point is ludicrous.

Neither Henderson or Fabinho are Liverpool's back up CBs so that's Klopp's fault.

The problem Liverpool has is after Van Dijk there's a big fall off. Matip is good enough but injury prone.

The excuses are just that, excuses. Put it this way, if Van Dijk was fit they'd get by with Phillips. But if Phillips had to play with Matip they'd struggle. Phillips with Gomez they'd be all over the place.

That’s a bit of a contradiction isn’t it? You point out the clubs 3 best and 2 backup centre backs are injured, so 5 centre backs in total, then critics squad depth? Just how many centre backs do you expect them to have?? No club in the land could cope with the injuries Liverpool have endured this season. A more pertinent question is whether playing style, rather than squad depth, has contributed.

As a City fan I understand that the first Liverpool 11 is probably the best in the country but beyond that its weak.

I have to disagree. City has the best 11 based on form. I agree however, it’s about depth. Losing Aguero for most of the season hasn’t stopped us scoring goals, but not at the same level. Losing DeBruyne for 6 weeks hasn’t stopped us over-running midfield. We have 3 world-class CBs. that is the main difference, along with a massively strong midfield, all of whom can play in multiple positions.

Despite their success, Liverpool will still need considerable investment if they also hope to Dominate over the next decade.

Yeah agree with this 100%. Not being owned by a country or an oligarch has had a massive effect. City and Chelsea can now but whom they want and following UEFA's embarassing climb down there is nothing to stop them making the playing field more uneven.

No matey, city team is by far the best and squad too. You have to say manager also as klopp has failed to build his squad like pep has, failed to adapt to injuries and departures like pep has. When your best players on the bench are both a stoke and an arsenal reject you got problems, the very same problems hes facing now.

Oh but it's just Van Dijk is it?

Liverpool's best 5 options at CB are:

1) Van Dijk
2) Gomez
3) Matip
4) Fabinho
5) Henderson

All of whom are injured.

No team could cope with that.

No matter where Liverpool finish, Klopp deserves to keep his job after what he's done over the last 5 years. Judge him again next season when he actually has the players to do something.

No, the comment said "Liverpool's best 5 options at CB are" meaning that the 2 midfielders (Fabinho & Henderson) are better options than any additional rookie CBs that are on the books. First 5 choices to play in the position not available. Simple. And devastating to any team

I'm not sure what Klopps tactics have got to do with Van Dijk being snapped by Pickford.

Or Gomez getting injured during England training.

Those 2 injuries made it harder to rotate the squad which lead to further injuries in that position.

People can say that every team has injuries, but to have your best three CBs injured, plus your two back-up CBs injured is extremely unlucky.

I think Liverpool's problem is their squad depth. Their best 11 is arguably the best in the league, but their overall squad is far from it.

Klopp has gone backwards in my managerial estimation by playing midfielders in defence. He had Philips as backup but didn't trust him. My 7 yar old son after two games said that it wasn't working defensively with midfielders out of position , but Klopp continued for another 6 games and then bought two rubbish Defenders??? Those 6 games will cost a top 4 place. Unbelievable schoolboy error.

I'm not sure what Klopps tactics have got to do with Van Dijk being snapped by Pickford.

Or Gomez getting injured during England training.

Those 2 injuries made it harder to rotate the squad which lead to further injuries in that position.

Everyone knew that the tactics were putting massive strain on the players & they'd been incredibly lucky with injuries previously.

If only Van Dijk was available would Klopp break up his MF instead of playing Phillips? Of course not except for the odd game maybe.

If only Gomez was available would Klopp partner him with Phillips as the solution? Not a chance.

That's the issue in a nutshell.

I agree. They were pushed to the limits for 2 seasons and that has taken its toll. But in a normal season, they may have coped better. It has been exacerbated by the intensity of this season, with so many matches coming so quickly and the lack of a proper pre-season, which explains why all clubs are experiencing higher injury rates.

I have to disagree. City has the best 11 based on form. I agree however, it’s about depth. Losing Aguero for most of the season hasn’t stopped us scoring goals, but not at the same level. Losing DeBruyne for 6 weeks hasn’t stopped us over-running midfield. We have 3 world-class CBs. that is the main difference, along with a massively strong midfield, all of whom can play in multiple positions.

You can probably argue this many ways, much depends on the luck on the field, and we certainly were not getting the rub for many years. Its hard now to decide who's City best 11 are, but like Alf Ramsey, the best 11 don't necessarily make the best team and Liverpools best 11 happen to be a great team.

Have you ever heard of punctuation? It's a rather marvellous way of separating the points you wish to make in a paragraph.

No great loss. Extremely overrated and a poor captain.

"If Man United had Liverpool's level of injuries, they would be 10th" - Rio Ferdinand

So all the man United fans saying "Liverpool fans are making excuses" can pipe down!! Even your own legends agree it's impossible to deal with 5 serious injuries in 1 position.
Ferdinand makes Chris Sutton seem intelligent so hardly a gauge for comparison!!
'united legend'?? Getting out jumped by 5' 7" Messi in the UCL Final makes him a cretin in my book.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for up to 10 weeks as a result of the groin injury he suffered against Everton.
The England midfielder, 30, was forced off in the first half in Saturday's 2-0 Merseyside derby defeat to add to the club's defensive problems.
He joins Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Fabinho on the sidelines.
