Redknapp wants 'disappointing' West Ham to stop the rot against Liverpool

  • Liverpool news Gary Neville outlines how Jurgen Klopp can lose Premier League title chase

The prospect of Manchester City storming ahead in the Premier League title race should results go the Blues way isn't the only daunting prospect awaiting Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool in the coming weeks.

Early elimination from both domestic cup competitions has eased Liverpool's schedule for the run-in, not that their manager wished it that way, but Klopp maintains the club's longing for the Premier League title will not hinder efforts to go one step further in this season's Champions League.

"It is a tough week for us and we go game by game".

"This club has not been champions for 29 years, so how can people sit there and watch it like (they are watching) City?" he said.

"You make the decision in the moment you have to and then people judge it later", he said.

Xherdan Shaqiri says Liverpool "are not robots" but believes they have enough players with match-winning ability at their disposal to grind out wins when not at their best.




They had never previously achieved the feat against any team in their top-flight history.

With regular right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold out injured, Klopp was questioned about his decision to allow Nathaniel Clyne to join Bournemouth on loan at the start of the January transfer window but the German said he had no regrets.

As things stand it will be Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip who will play in central defence for the next couple of games and now we have to wait on reports as to whether Joe Gomez's leg will actually be operated on.

Neuer missed Saturday's surprise 3-1 loss away to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga - a defeat that left them seven points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund and third in the table.

"I don't know [if he needs surgery]". Then I think when we do that, we bring that onto the pitch, then I am sure we are going to win a lot of games. If it comes down to nerve in the last five games, City will win it. We will see exactly how we do it.
