Liverpool Right To Trust Jurgen Klopp

If Jurgen Klopp hadn’t have brought the Premier League title to Anfield last season, then it could have been easy for the Liverpool hierarchy to pull the trigger and sack the German at points during this season.

But that championship win, along with years of progress, was enough to but the Reds gaffer time and Liverpool’s board are now seeing that their decision to stand by their man was the right call.

Klopp and his team have had rotten luck with injuries this term and they seem to have struggled with the idea of being the champs and defending their title.

Yet they seemed down and out of even Champions League qualification just a few months ago. Now with three games to go, The Reds have their destiny in their own hands given the way the fixture list has landed.

Three wins and they should edge out either Chelsea or Leicester City and get that Top Four spot.

Liverpool are currently on a seven game unbeaten run. They look to be playing their best football of this calendar year. They’ve just won their last two fixtures comfortably against Manchester United (BBC Match Report) and Southampton.

Mo Salah is entering into some decent form, scoring twice and creating an assist in his last three appearances.

Thiago is starting to finally come into his own in the midfield, while Trent Alexander-Arnold has answered his critics with some sterling form of his own!

Other clubs like Tottenham Hotspur have pushed the button and decided to ditch their manager, but Liverpool are starting to see their patience paying off.

Another issue that has seen Liverpool’s form dip has been the lack of fans within the stadium as Klopp himself has pointed out:

“But one of the main reasons is there is no crowd in, there‚Äôs no doubt about that. A lot of teams have that problem.”

As the UK heads further out of lockdown, we should see that change soon. It might not impact this season but it could really bolster Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp’s chances of winning the Premier League crown back next year.
