Liverpool have not been doing well recently. That much is obvious.

Solutions are complex and hard to come by, but the first step is understanding the problem. That is happening right now.

“We lost that game [against Burnley] and it was a really low point. It’s not that I thought, ‘who cares?’,” This Is Anfield report Jürgen Klopp as saying.

“When I think back I can’t find a reason why we lost that game but we lost it. It happened and sometimes you need a really low point to change things properly and that’s for sure [what] we will go for now.

“If we would have won in a bad game the world would have said, ‘OK, it’s not the football they usually play but they are back on the result path’, but in the long term it would not help.

“It can be a real help if we use it. I can imagine what a lot of people think about us in the moment.

“But people don’t change overnight. People sometimes face challenges they are not immediately ready for and sometimes you don’t even know a challenge will come up.

“But this is a challenge didn’t want to have. Was it absolutely impossible it could happen? No, especially in the situation we are.

“[The players] are still brilliant people and brilliant characters, all of them.

“All of them made happen what happened in the last few years and they don’t change overnight. It is still a really good group.”

Look, there’s a lot of work to be done. More than in some time. Liverpool have the solutions in the squad and the coaching staff. This will get better.
