Liverpool are having a disastrous January. Jurgen Klopp’s side have played a massive eight games across the month but have only won one of them, a victory that is now irrelevant after Saturday.
Winning against Plymouth in an FA Cup 3rd Round replay is insignificant now that Wolves have dumped them out of the FA Cup.
Wanderers picked up a deserved 2-1 victory at Anfield on Saturday thanks to goals from Richard Stearman and Andreas Weimann, who was making his first ever start for the club.
Klopp badly needs answers or risks seeing all his progress at Anfield being reversed. It’s a run of form that needs sorted out or Liverpool’s season will crash and burn hard after such a promising first half of the season.
How hard a task will that be? Well, this stat from Opta shows just how deep a slump Klopp finds himself in.
3 – Jurgen Klopp has suffered three consecutive home defeats as a manager for the first time since April 2007 (with Mainz). Tamed.

It’s the German manager’s worst run of home form for nearly 10 years. It’s not something that Liverpool fans will enjoy reading and we’re sure support for the popular boss won’t wain, at least in the short-term, but he really needs to start picking up wins again or will find that the pressure arrives very quickly indeed.
