Jamie Redknapp reveals Jurgen Klopp’s problems ahead of Man United v Liverpool
The former Liverpool captain discusses some of the issues facing Jurgen Klopp ahead of Manchester United clash
Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Jurgen Klopp is facing a number of problems ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds have failed to win their last three games in all competitions following an abject performance in a 1-0 loss to Southampton in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at St Mary’s on Wednesday night.
Indeed, Liverpool failed to beat League Two side Plymouth Argyle in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend despite producing a dominant performance in front of their Anfield supporters.
Klopp will be without Sadio Mane for the trip to Old Trafford following the winger’s departure for the Africa Cup of Nations, while Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip and Philippe Coutinho are all returning from injury.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Liverpool’s trip to bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, Redknapp discussed some of the issues facing Klopp and his Reds side.
“Jurgen Klopp’s side have a few problems. They have not won in their last three and Sadio Mane is proving a huge loss since going to the Africa Nations Cup,” Redknapp said.
“You can play a completely different game with him, but Liverpool don’t have anyone else with that pace.
“The draw against Plymouth can be explained by Klopp’s team selection and Liverpool can still make it to the EFL Cup final with their second leg against Southampton, but losing at Old Trafford would be another setback.”
