Liverpool have come along leaps and bounds under Jurgen Klopp but there can be little doubt that they still have a weakness at the heart of their defence.

Olivier Giroud was the latest man to exploit the Reds’ soft centre in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Liverpool to keep their faint Champions League hopes alive and centre-half is surely an area that Klopp will be looking at in the summer.
