Klopp finally set to revamp leaky Liverpool defence

Klopp finally set to revamp leaky Liverpool defence”

"I think we didn't start well at all, so it's about being ready for the game - everybody, I know Dejan [Lovren] got took off early in the game but it could've been anyone of us that came off because it wasn't good enough", said Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, giving his frank assessment of the team's shambolic display at Wembley. "Starting from out wide, they ended up being silly goals", he told ESPN Brasil in the wake of the defeat.

"The first goal was scored after four minutes and the second one after 12 or 13".

Klopp's men have conceded goals on regular basis and Spurs literally ripped their poor defense apart at the Wembley Stadium last weekend.

"We have to improve this as quickly as possible in order to win games, fight more, in more hard games like this. But we need to work on a few things and change it quickly", continued the Reds skipper, treading territory that's now all too familiar. "It's really hard against a strong team when you start like that".

"He's getting dragged out of position, because you have got Lovren and Moreno, and whoever plays at right back - it's probably more solid than anywhere else".

A substandard defensive record has been Liverpool's biggest issue once more this season, with only five other teams conceding more than the 16 they have shipped in just nine games.

Coutinho nearly seems to have absolved Klopp of the blame, but supporters are seeing it very differently.

Instead, Klopp will look to his emerging youth prospects, and is likely to give Joe Gomez - who shifted across to centre-back after Lovren's substitution - an extended run in the heart of the defence.

Klopp actually has Liverpool playing well in general, but time and time again, performances are being let down by avoidable errors.
