A Dreadful Start for the Kop, Only Ninth Place in the Premier League After Seven Games

A Dreadful Start for the Kop, Only Ninth Place in the Premier League After Seven Games

Two wins, four draws and one loss have seen Liverpool only to be ranked ninth after playing seven games in the Premier League this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side would be taking a break from league games when they welcome Rangers to Anfield for a Champions League fixture, before heading to the Emirates Stadium for a clash with the league leader, the Gunners.

 

Off-Form Core

Under the German coach and his high-pitch Gegenpressing style of football, the once fallen giant Liverpool has been revived and even captured the league title after a 30-year hiatus. Apart from Klopp’s dynamic brand of attacking, players like Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Robert Firmino, etc. have excelled in Liverpool’s quest of regaining its fame in both English football and international club levels.

However, the performance from the Merseyside Red has been under par, especially after Mane’s departure for German champions Bayern Munich and his replacement, the £64m Darwin Nunez not playing up to the Senegalese’s usual standards that Liverpool fans so used to.

 

What’s Next for the Kop?

Yes, it is only seven games into a new season, but considering the Kop has finished in the top four for the last six seasons and City’s boys cruising on top with Haaland already bagging 14 goals in eight matches, the start that they are going through is not only dreadful. Furthermore, the downfall of its players has also sparked rumours that its main star Salah is heading for the exit from the Merseyside Red.

The coach has also described his side is in “a low point” and tough times like this always calls for the manager’s wisdom to improvise and spark changes. In the latest press conference given by Jorgen Klopp ahead of its “Clash of Britain” with Scottish side Rangers has highlighted the German’s  desire to implement a new formation of 4-2-3-1 instead of his usual 4-3-3 lineup that has brought years of success to the Merseyside Red since the German’s arrival to England.

We will have to wait for the latter period of the season to judge if Jurgen Klopp’s side is really hitting a low, but the tough schedule ahead in club and country football would never be on the Kop’s side if they wish to overturn things to the better direction.
