Very disfunctional performance due to players not use to each other and playing out of position. Biggest worries would be Milner, he didnít have a great game and the same when he was on v Man City. Sturridge should be sold as he didnít look interested or maybe his legs are gone, Moreno should be sold to. Shaq looks like he is a impact sub for when the game opens up or when they are leading.
Got the impression that the FA cup isnít on the Klopp radar and is a distraction, so it maybe rubbed of on the players.

Yeah, Klopp won't say that publicly as the English media still try to cling to the Romance of this competition. Last night was there for 5/6 to show case their ability, try to win the game and open up chances for them to get real game time again in round 4 and possibly 5 (after seeing how the draw went).
Not just this season that Klopp hasn't cared much for the FA Cup. Since he became manager Liverpool have been knocked out by Wolves twice,West Brom and West Ham. Also drew with Exeter City and Plymouth.
Thanks for that Captain Obvious.

Does anyone think Liverpool might pick up a defender in the transfer window? Injuries are beginning to mount up back there.

Not really the Klopp thing (unless he is picking up a dual threat player like caulker). By the sounds of it Gomez and Matip are back soon.

No harm in picking up an experienced Premier League defender for the run-in. Guys like Scott Dann, Ryan Shawcross or Jamaal Lascelles would have done the job in the Wolves match.

I reckon Kloppís thinking is in a matter of weeks he will have 4 fit cbís at his disposable again so whatís the point. Although we are not penny pinchers anymore, every buck still counts in relation to trying to compete with the lkes of citee.

Plus it also blocks the chances and subsequent development of youth. If Klavan has not been sold  Gomez may not have got his chance at the start of the season.

Klopp has already stated that he will not be getting a defender.  The way the games are set there is no desperate need for one.  Matip, Gomez and Lovern will all be available again within 3 weeks, Fabinho can step in there.  There are 5 games in the next 30 days so the squad is not going to be massively stretched hopefully with plenty of recovery time between games.

I dont see it as Klopps style to get a stop gap defender now in january, even though it may not be the worst idea.
Ideally he will upgrade lovren/matip in the summer so that there are 3 top quality CB vying for 2 places next season
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either
