This paragraph written about Klopps Liverpool, feels strangely familiar.
'What they have got instead is the same game played out again and again, with the same defensive mistakes, the same wastefulness in front of goal, the same formation and the same manager insisting that their luck is about to change.
There was too little done in the summer, with tweaks made to the squad when they arguably needed a whole new spine ahead of a return to the Champions League. Mo Salah has been a success but neither Andy Robertson nor Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been trusted. Klopp argues that he can do little to either prevent mistakes or convert chances, but when you are taking an average of 19.6 shots per game and allowing just 8.4, a goal difference of +1 is an aberration. We did not expect a title challenge but nor did we expect Liverpool to enter the second international break behind Burnley on goal difference. Step up, Jurgen.’
