Something is wrong somewhere at Liverpool FC. Whether you are a Liverpool fan or not, you have to agree that something is terribly wrong at the club. The 5-time UEFA Champions League winners are now placed 8th after 5 games with 8 points out of a possible 15 in the English Premier League. The giants are behind Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town, two teams that were just promoted to the 2017/18 Premier League.
Of a possible six points in September so far, The Reds have managed just one, a home game draw with Burnley. In the other game, they were humiliated away at Manchester City, losing 5-0. This was even after the valuable acquisition of the winger, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal. This is actually the biggest away loss this season for any team in the Premier League.
In the other two games in September, they drew at home against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League and just last night, they were eliminated by Leicester City from the EFL Carabao Cup, losing 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
The opening games of the season saw them draw 3-3 with Watford at Vicarage Road, win 1-0 at home against Crystal Palace and then humiliate Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield.
After losing to Leicester last night, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, said that conceding in the way they did, made him feel sick. He also admitted that defensive errors cost his side at the King Power Stadium. Something really is wrong somewhere.
So, they lost 2-0 at Leicester City last night and got kicked out of the League Cup. The same fixture will be played when Leicester, once again this week, play host to Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, for a Premier League fixture. Will the results replicate themselves or will Jurgen Klopp’s men rescue a win and some points in the process? We will have to wait for Saturday September 23rd 2017 for that.
Three days after, next Tuesday, they will travel to Spartak Moscow for a Group E UEFA Champions League fixture.
October will see Liverpool play four Premier League games and one Champions League fixtrure, away at Maribor. The four Premier League games, will be against Newcastle United (A), Manchester United (H), Tottenham Hotspur (A) and Huddersfield Town (H) in that order.
