Gary Lineker tells Jurgen Klopp not to worry about Liverpool crisis
The Spurs legend isn't worried about Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp despite a tricky run of results
Gary Lineker has reassured Jurgen Klopp that Liverpool will be fine if the Reds keep creating so many chances despite a tough run of results.
The Merseyside outfit have only managed to win one of their six games in all competitions since a 4-0 victory over title rivals Arsenal at Anfield in the Premier League at the end of August.
Liverpool have been creating lots of chances but Klopp’s men have been guilty of wastefulness in front of goal, which in turns has put pressure on their leaky defence.
Indeed, Klopp’s back four has been the subject of relentless criticism throughout September and the Liverpool boss’ decision not to sign a new centre-half has promoted much debate.
Liverpool were unable to capitalise on a dominant Champions League performance in Russia that saw the Reds have 16 shots on goal but score just once in a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow.
However, Spurs legend Lineker doesn’t think it’s time for Liverpool to panic considering the number of chances the Merseyside outfit continue to create this season.
“When you look at a team you can see when they’re in a little bit of trouble or when they’re in a little bit of a crisis,” Lineker told BT Sport.
“Liverpool are creating lots of chances. When you’re doing that, it gives you half a chance.”
Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League.
The Reds signed four players in the summer transfer window.
