Liverpool's Burnley nightmare is the change Klopp needs to make

Jose Mourinho

Liverpool will be hoping to establish some consistency when they host Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday.

Liverpool might not have had a good 2017, losing a number of matches, and their results against weaker opposition have been a worry.

Liverpool v Burnley was originally scheduled to be the first game at Anfield with the new Main Stand - however due to a delay in completion the clubs switched the games around so that the reds travelled to Turf Moor back in August. However, questions still remain.

He continued: "Burnley have the clearest plan of all these teams".

After an absolutely horrendous month of January which saw Liverpool struggle in the Premier League and get eliminated from both domestic cup competitions, the Reds have bounced back and are again in contention for the top four.

Klopp seems prepared for his side to be overtaken, but admits he'd love to lead the Merseyside giants back into the Champions League. Yes because of the league, because of the opponents and all that stuff.

Just a few weeks ago, Liverpool comfortably defeated Spurs at Anfield and then did the same to their rivals Arsenal.

Daniel Sturridge is also ruled out after failing to recover from a hip problem while Roberto Firmino is a major doubt after failing to train this week having picked up a knock against Arsenal.

Whatever nonsense is running through her head continues as she recruits Sasha to go rogue for another assassination attempt. But with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) seemingly absent from this episode , it is down to Ezekiel to deliver the rousing speeches.

Jurgen Klopp is still not sure whether to regard Liverpool stalwart James Milner as a defender of a midfielder.

They have built their entire Premier League survival strategy on their home form which has been pretty impressive.

Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged that Liverpool have "not been perfect" this term, but is happy with the way his side have proved many of their critics wrong since their early-season loss Burnley. It's a curious dichotomy, because you would think a game based on consistent tactics and principles could be successful anywhere.

Liverpool's 3-1 win over Arsenal represented a continuation of the Reds' excellent form at home over Klopp, but realistically they are out of contention for the title and must now fight tooth-and-nail for a top-six spot. We just have to be ready for hard work. "You miss a chance against Burnley and everyone thinks differently - 'Ah, difficult, difficult, we won't have another chance like this".

All five of Liverpool's defeats this season have come against teams in the bottom half with many believing Klopp needs a different approach in such fixtures.

"In winter we were looking, but you can not buy a player only because you need one, and not care who".

Unders is the big outsider here at [2.5], and that makes sense.
