Is Jurgen Klopp under pressure? Can he turn things around at Liverpool?

Klopp has created his own pressure because of his successes. I said a few weeks ago that expectations have risen and the dynamics at Liverpool are now different.

As people rightly point out, Klopp has a lot of credit in the bank but people need to see where the team is going and they’ve got a crunch game next week against Spurs.

If they lose, will put them ten or so points behind the top four – that’s a big deficit to make up.

If Jurgen Klopp thinks he can turn things around then I think he will stay for as long as he wants.


Could Liverpool’s form be down to players not wanting to risk injury ahead of the World Cup?

I don’t think that’s a factor because if it was the case for Liverpool then it’d be the same for every other team.

I can’t see Liverpool players going into challenges half-heartedly because if you do that then that’s when you will get injured.

I think Liverpool just had a very hectic season last year, missing out on all four trophies and that would’ve been psychologically tough.

They look pedestrian and tired now and they needed to freshen up in the summer because a good team thrives on competition for places and at the moment they haven’t got that.

Liverpool have so many injury-prone players and they needed to address that in the summer. They didn’t and I think that’s the reason they’re slacking at the moment.

How highly do you rate Andrew Robertson after his 50th European appearance for the club?

Robertson has been one of Liverpool’s best signings and probably one of the cheapest as well.

When he joined I think people thought he’d be a backup option but he’s turned into one of the best left-backs in the world.

There have been a lot of brilliant signings but I think when you talk about the best money spent, I think Andy would be up there.
