Jurgen Klopp is a popular figure amongst Liverpool fans since his arrival at Anfield but it’s fair to say his stock has fallen quite a bit in 2017, with the Reds sensationally winning just two of their 12 fixtures in all competitions.
A premature FA Cup exit at the hands of Wolves and Premier League defeats to the likes of Swansea and Leicester City have raised questions as to what direction Liverpool are travelling in with the German boss at the helm- and the stats don’t make for good reading.

After 56 Premier League matches, Klopp’s record at Liverpool is exactly the same as his predecessor Brendan Rodgers- winning 27, drawing 16 and losing 13. What’s perhaps the most concerning is this means Klopp’s win ratio is particularly low.
Klopp may have guided Liverpool to two finals last season, the League Cup and Europa League, but ended-up empty-handed in both and fans may begin to question whether the German is the right man for the job, or if the players aren’t as good as they need to be.
