Jurgen Klopp warned “all is not well” at Liverpool following a tricky Champions League draw

Former Tottenham and Chelsea star-turned-pundit Glenn Hoddle has warned Jurgen Klopp that “all is not well” at Liverpool.

The Reds have had the worst start to a season in Premier League history, with no wins in their first three games.

Instead, Klopp’s team has two points after drawing their first two games against Fulham and Crystal Palace before suffering a crushing defeat away at long-time rivals Manchester United.

The Red Devils won 2-1 at Old Trafford, while Liverpool looked a shadow of their former selves, losing the battle in the centre of the park for much of the game, which explains Klopp’s admission that another midfielder would be “cool.”

As relayed by the Liverpool Echo, the Reds manager explained: “This situation did not change. Now we have more injuries than we would have imagined and it would be cool to have another midfielder in, of course. He added that he is “not in charge” of what Liverpool can spend.

Like Klopp, Hoddle mentioned the injuries currently plaguing this Liverpool side. “It is not as good as they’d like it to be – they have got a lot of injuries at the moment with key players out,” the ex-Monaco man told BT Sport.

“It is very difficult to set a standard and keep it, but they’ve had to do it in back-to-back seasons. They had the two domestic cups they won, but all is not well there.

“I think they’ve got enough quality, on and off the pitch, with Klopp and his experience, to turn it back around. But they cannot let City get five, six points away from them so early in the season.”

Liverpool has certainly overcome larger point deficits, but this slow start is cause for concern.

Players who are usually so dependable for the Reds are performing far below expectations.

Following United’s first goal on Monday night, Virgil van Dijk received stern on-field criticism from teammate James Milner, while club captain Jordan Henderson had a night to forget and was hooked long before the final whistle.

Things aren’t expected to improve anytime soon, especially in Europe, where the Reds have been drawn in a Champions League group with Dutch giants Ajax, Scottish titans Rangers, and Serie A side Napoli.

The Reds will host newly promoted Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday.
