Liverpool lost 3-2 to Arsenal on Sunday to slip out of sight from the top of the table
Liverpool are currently tenth in the League after their 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday. The Reds are now facing a lot of scrutiny for their poor form and lack of intensity. In the match against Arsenal, they were outworked by Arsenal who pressed with determination and high intensity. Moreover, Mikel Arteta took full advantage of the lack of intensity that Liverpool currently have on display. It wasn’t a completely dominant performance though, Arsenal could only win because of a soft penalty decision against Liverpool in the dying moments of the game.
The lack of form has now led to many critics questioning Jurgen Klopp’s recent decisions on the pitch. Jurgen Klopp, who has won every major trophy with Liverpool is not devoid of criticism, according to former player Dietmar Hamann.
“The dynamics at Liverpool are no different than anywhere else and if results are not there, at some stage the manager will come under pressure. At some stage, I think we will have a discussion about the manager and I’m not sure how far we’re off it. He said this week he still feels he’s the right man to do it.
Hamann also criticized Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for his attitude on the pitch. He has warned that Henderson is a part of the problem at Liverpool currently. He said:
“This is something we haven’t seen at Liverpool for five years. Henderson, for me, is the ultimate team player, whenever he never played he came on, did his job. But I look at little things, Jordan Henderson midweek against Rangers. His number’s going up and he’s reluctantly taking his armband off and coming off shaking his head. Maybe there’s little signs that there’s problems within the club or with the manager”
