In the middle of this week, Liverpool will visit Chelsea’s stadium in the fifth round of the FA Cup. If the Blues see this arena save a blank season, the Kop is aiming to win a domestic double.
There was an earthquake at the weekend as Liverpool were knocked down 3-0 by struggling Watford. The black spot for the European defeat was Dejan Lovren’s position. The Croatian’s slow action, strong judgment and poor positioning resulted in Liverpool conceding the first two goals. Kop fans were furious at Lovren’s poor performance.
Good luck The Red Brigade as they will welcome the extremely important return of Joe Gomez and James Milner. Gomez was the best partner next to Van Dijk until his sudden injury. Meanwhile, James Milner’s leadership is desperately needed when captain Jordan Henderson has yet to recover.
With Gomez and Milner on the way, Klopp will have more options in the rotation. Liverpool have just had a tight schedule and haven’t had a good result, so some of the pillars need to rest.
