Five areas Liverpool must strengthen in January

Liverpool are having a season far superior to what many would have expected. Playing some of the best football across Europe, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been as successful as they have been enjoyable.

Flying high at the top of the Premier League, the Reds must be considering a top four finish as the bare minimum by now. Winning the title, meanwhile, is a very realistic possibility, particularly with the additional bonus of those empty weeks without European football. A squad laced with talent and prospects continues to produce some of the most unstoppable football in the world, making the future a bright one at Anfield.

Klopp is no stranger to this sort of success, either. He has been as influential in his squad building, change of team mentality and tactics, but the January window could define the early knockings of his Merseyside tenure. Often a market that clubs want to veer away from, Liverpool must not be afraid to throw the cash about this winter, in the knowledge it could make all the difference come May.
