With much of the ire in recent days swirling around Liverpool’s recent string of poor results, an upcoming Premier League clash at the weekend has seen the Reds suddenly find themselves in the midst of a mini injury crisis.

With Emre Can and starting center half pair, Dejan Lovren and Joël Matip all doubts for the fixture, Klopp potentially finds himself without a sizeable portion of his current first XI in the areas of the pitch that have already been underperforming of late.

The German fielded questions from reporters in his pre-match press conference about how he planned to cope with the sudden shortage of options while also defending his latest signing, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain against criticism following the winger’s muted start to his Liverpool career.

The Reds are in for a tricky matchup that will see the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez return to the lineup for the Foxes, and Klopp will be hoping to crack the code and break his side’s run of bad form so far in the month of September.
