Three stars who need a late Liverpool exit

Just what has happened to Liverpool of late? It was only a few weeks ago the Reds were flying high, a mere couple of points behind League leaders Chelsea and still in all the cup competitions.

And then January happened. Eight games, one win, and down to only one competition. First came their elimination from the EFL Cup, where Jurgen Klopp’s men were beaten 2-0 on aggregate by an hit-and-miss Southampton side. Secondly, and most recently, came the embarrassing FA Cup fourth round exit at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Thirdly, add into that bag the failure to win any three of their Premier League games and you have a miserable start of 2017.

While some Liverpool fans have been quick to consign their club to another season of doom and gloom, the truth is far from that. The Reds still very much remain in the title race and their improvement this first full season under Klopp has been nothing short of remarkable.

The German manager needs time to find the right dynamic and perhaps, more importantly, the right players for his squad going forward. January presented another chance for the former Dortmund manager to make this Liverpool side his own, so could it be in with the new and out with the old?
