Klopp contract not right - Hamann

There is an element of surprise to Liverpool's sudden downturn in fortunes.

In contrast, Liverpool have the best record in the Premier League when playing sides now in the top six.

But while Lovren came to the Premier League via Dinamo Zagreb and Lyon, he now finds himself fighting a battle to keep Liverpool in the title race and fighting for a Champions League spot. We have to show the reaction but it will not change my answers because of things like this after a game which I'm not happy about.

On the one hand, you have to take anything positive about Liverpool coming from one of the Neville brothers- or indeed any former United player- with several grains of salt.

Head coach Marco Silva has hailed a growing belief and spirit at Hull City following the shock defeat of Liverpool this weekend. Jürgen Klopp is probably chainsmoking right now. I wouldn't have given him a six-year contract. "That's not a problem".

"We came here and I think nobody thought we would go so far". Things like this don't change that.

"We need to show much more consistency", he told a news conference.

The surpluses in services reduced the overall USA trade deficit with its NAFTA partners to $39.2 billion in 2015, Lu reports . Bilateral trade amounts to half a trillion dollars per year, with 80 percent of Mexican exports going to the United States.

Antonio Conte was taking time to settle at Chelsea, but the Reds were relentless - their irresistible attacking football made the whole Premier League sit up and take notice. It doesn't mean for me I'm not suffering, I don't do self-pity, I'm not like this. I'm not like this.

"When I get up tomorrow I will only be solution-orientated".

"It's the right thing to say in this moment and that feels really hard". Though he likes James Milner, Hamann highlighted the failure to acquire a long-term left-back replacement for the disappointing Alberto Moreno as a fault.

Critics have also rightly pointed to Klopp's insistence on playing a weakened team in the FA Cup. However, that did not have an impact as they were knocked out of the competition following a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fourth round.

Jordan Henderson is Klopp's current first choice in the No. 6 role, and the captain has largely impressed this season, but his performances of late have lacked the bite required. They had two proper players in Kante and Matic.

They took their places in the starting lineup four days after completing deadline-day deals along with Italian Andrea Ranocchia, who was only upgraded from the bench after Michael Dawson sustained a calf injury in the warmup. Liverpool dominated possession again but they were lacking that final ball and cutting edge.
