Jamie Redknapp has told Jurgen Klopp that his Liverpool defenders are not up to the task this season following their dismal 4-1 loss to Tottenham last weekend.

The Reds suffered a disappointing loss to the Lilywhites at White Hart Lane as their stuttering start to the new season continued.

Liverpool’s defence has been constantly under the spotlight this season, with the Reds having conceded 16 goals in the Premier League so far this term.

The Merseyside outfit were heavily linked with a bid to sign centre-half Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialise.

And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp believes that the Reds need to strengthen their defence after a dismal start to the new campaign, with Klopp’s side having only won three of their opening nine Premier League games.

Speaking on Sky Sports after Sunday’s game, Redknapp said: “When Liverpool go away from home, they’re wide open.

“I think their personnel is not good enough. It’s a collective problem with their back four.”

Liverpool, who finished fourth and without a trophy last season, are now preparing to aim to return to winning ways in front of their home fans at Anfield this weekend when they host Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers head into that game fresh from having secured a shock 2-1 victory over Manchester United last weekend.
