After suffering three straight home defeats at Anfield, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has explained that the club could sack him if his wards should suffer another defeat against Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Liverpool will face their much heralded opponents Chelsea on Tuesday night (January 31, 2017) in a Premier League duel that is expected to be explosive.
The Reds have been bundled out of the EFL Cup and also the FA Cup, and the embattled manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is on the verge of being thrown out of the club if his side flop against Antonio Conte’s men.
“I know what will happen if we end up losing a fourth game in a row and I’m I allowed to go for the best position in the Premier League?
“Or should we just put our heads down and say, ‘OK, sorry, we failed again. Let’s get through the season and next year try again with different players and, if someone asks for it, a new manager’?
“I can’t decide this, but I think we should try everything to make the best of the base that we have created so far.
“A lot of people are saying this could be a difficult moment for Liverpool, and it is difficult, no doubt,” Klopp explained.
Meanwhile Liverpool will welcome back their star striker Sadio Mane who has returned to the squad since his country Senegal crashed out of the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.
