Hull 2 – Liverpool 0
This is no longer a blip for Liverpool. It’s a full blown, right here, right now, problem.
Liverpool’s woeful run of results continued on Saturday at the KCOM Stadium against Hull, as the Reds lost 1-0 away at the relegation threatened Tigers.
Liverpool only have won win in their last 10 matches in all competitions, and that was against Plymouth.
Premier League title hopes? Forget that. Right now Jurgen Klopp is facing a battle to keep his side in the top four picture.
Like a broken record, Liverpool fans were fuming at Simon Mignolet as Alfred N’Diaye was allowed to open the scoring just before the break.
And in the 84th minute a long punt upfield released Everton loanee Oumar Niasse who found the back of the net.
Klopp backlash gets serious
When he arrived at Liverpool 18-months ago, the German boss had a huge amount of goodwill in his favour.
But as the Reds’ season tanks faster than the Titanic, is the tide changing?

Klopp's been there ages and he still can't get Liverpool to defend a set piece.

Somebody explain to me yet again why Klopp is picking Emre can alongside Henderson against a team who sits back

A week ago you wanted Bobby back as false 9. Now you want Sturridge or Origi upfront. Doesn't matter what Klopp does – it's wrong to you.

Why so negative?
– FSG made profit
– Main stand done
– Gerrard at academy
– Klopp said Boom
Who cares if #LFC are 6th and trophy-less again?

This is the last weekend Liverpool will spend in the top 4 this season. Klopp's arrogance and stubbornness has ruined this season.

Romelu Lukaku has now scored the same number of goals in 2017 as the entire Liverpool squad.
