What's behind Liverpool's recent poor form?

What’s behind Liverpool’s recent poor form?

  1. Salah and Nunez!
  2. Constant substitution of Szobo by Klopp
  3. The early announcement of Klopp’s departure

  • Removing Diaz from the field is a mistake.
  • Van Dijk is no more the player he used to be.

Football fans and team hoped Jurgen Klopp ended his Liverpool career on a high note but it doesn’t seem likely to happen.

Just a few weeks ago, Liverpool were eyeing a historic quadruple of trophies. However, they exited the FA Cup and even the Europa League and the woeful form has stretched into the Premier League too.

They still had some hope left, but Saturday’s 2-2 draw against West Ham has almost ended their title chase. That this was disappointing is clear, but it has also affected the players so much that in the match against West Ham, substitute Mohammed Salah was seen arguing vociferously with Klopp.


Here are some reasons why Liverpool has been performing poorly recently:

  • Lack of intensity: Liverpool has been accused of dropping their customary intensity levels when pressing from the front.

  • Defensive issues: The Reds’ defense appears to be the primary cause behind their lacklustre standing, having already conceded 25 goals.

  • Dropping points: Losing 28 points this term, six points more than all of last season.

  • Offense issues: The Reds have converted only 0.84 ‘big chances’ per game this term, their lowest ratio since 2015/16.

  • Injury issues: Liverpool has been dealing with a number of injuries to key players, which has disrupted their team chemistry and performance.


Key players such as Salah, Nunez and Zoboslai are underperforming at the crucial stage of the season, the touch line row between Salah and Klopp last week also speaks volumes about their togetherness and commitment at the moment. Everything seems to be wrong at Liverpool right now.
