Liverpool away in Europe: Klopp's Achilles heel

All the greats have a weakness - nobody is perfect. You can apply that to any walk of life.

When did Liverpool's tactics become so predictable?

I’m sure I’ve written the start of this article about a million times this season – but here we are again. Another game, another disappointment or so it seems with this Liverpool side that lulled us into a false sense of security with a convincing win over Arsenal last weekend.

The strong likelihood is that Jurgen Klopp's dark horses will fall at this fence. They were incredibly poor in the first half and passable in the second. This may be a far cry from the Real Madrid that was crowned kings of Europe for three years in …
