Ian Wright believes that Jurgen Klopp must be the man to blame for Liverpool’s stuttering start to the new season.

The Reds have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League this season and currently find themselves 12 points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the title.

Indeed, the Reds have only won four of their opening 10 Premier League games to leave them off the pace in the race for the title.

Liverpool did return to winning ways last weekend with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at Anfield.

The Merseyside outfit will now look to find consistency in the Premier League as they look to claw their way back into the title race before Christmas.

However, former Arsenal star Wright feels that Klopp is solely to blame for Liverpool’s poor start to the season.

Wright told BBC Radio 5 live: “They’re still making the same mistakes.

“It’s the same players. Mignolet is making mistakes. Unfortunately for Lovren, he is still making the same mistakes.

“He [Klopp] is rightly under pressure. He should be under pressure.”

Liverpool return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they host Maribor at Anfield.

The Reds thrashed Maribor 7-0 when the two teams last met earlier this month in the Champions League.

Liverpool will then turn their attentions towards their Premier League trip to West Ham this weekend.
