Liverpool, as it turned out, won! After 4 consecutive losses in the Premier League, Merseyside beat outsider Sheffield United 2-0.
Klopps is not happy about the situation
It’s true that the opposition was the weakest team in the Premier League, but Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is still very pleased and made optimistic statements.
“A lot of us got recorded, and that’s acceptable. However, despite many problems, we are still struggling, ”said the German. His side is close to the top four with this win – Liverpool are sixth with 43 points and are now just two points behind West Ham, who are fourth in the Champions League. Among them are Chelsea, which has one point more than Liverpool. Klopp’s team will play Chelsea on Thursday, and this is actually the last match for Klopp’s team, because getting into the Champions League is vital for both teams.
“We will play Chelsea on Thursday and we have to show everyone again what we can do in a crisis. “We know we have to win matches – no one can make it to the Champions League without a result,” Klopp said.
In the decisive match against Chelsea, the German hopes for the return of Diogo Iota. It is more important to get Fabinho back as the Lersisides have the most problems in the back row. And, of course, the first goalkeeper Alison Becker, who missed the match against Sheffield due to the death of her father. Klopp is almost certain that Fabinho and Allison will play for Chelsea. Jota’s game is still in question.
Henderson also underwent surgery in the hospital for a long time – the captain of Liverpool.
Liverpool not only have no staffing problems, they are adding new ones! As expected, the injury to Merseyside captain Jordan Henderson was more serious than Liverpool fans would have liked. On Friday, the club confirmed that the 30-year-old footballer underwent surgery and, according to doctors, will not be able to help Jurgen Klopp’s team at least until the end of March.
Liverpool’s medical staff have yet to make specific predictions about Henderson’s return. It is possible that the captain will miss the team even longer – it depends on how his rehabilitation process goes.
Jordan Henderson, whom Klopp has recently used mainly in central defense due to staff problems, was injured in the derby against Everton on Saturday (0-2) and came on as a substitute half an hour later.
As you know, Mersesydes injured Virgil Van Dyke, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip. Lately, Fabinho often leaves the game due to injuries. The latter and Henderson are midfielders, but due to an unfortunate situation, Klopp will play in their defense.
