Liverpool’s only real concern ahead of the summer transfer window was getting Philippe Coutinho to sign a new contract.
The Brazilian has committed his future to the club, so as far as most Reds fans are concerned, all is right with the world.
Barcelona may still come knocking for the playmaker, but it’s going to be a lot harder for him to leave Merseyside.
Unfortunately, aside from the Coutinho announcement, not much else has been going right for Jurgen Klopp.
Since the turn of the year, Liverpool have won just once, and that was against Plymouth.
Instead of battling it out for the Premier League title, they’re now looking over their shoulder and clinging onto a place in the top four.
Out of both domestic cups, too, there’s nothing to distract from their poor recent results against Swansea and Sunderland.
It’s the two consecutive cup defeats that have caused alarm this week, and unsurprisingly, those at fault have been coming under fire.
Daniel Sturridge’s typically selfish – and now, as is becoming the norm, uninspiring – performances of late have seen his future come into question.
However, the Mirror report that Klopp has no more questions to ask of the striker, and has in fact made up his mind to sell the England international at the end of the season.
Sturridge’s lack of pace is a big problem in Klopp’s system, and he has generally opted for a front three of Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino, and Coutinho.
The same newspaper suggests that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be considered as a massive upgrade if Liverpool could tempt him, but at £70million and with Real Madrid also keen, it’s going to be difficult for Klopp to arrange a reunion with his former BVB forward.
