Jürgen Klopp regrets Liverpool’s lack of final-ball finesse at Huddersfield

Posted October 26, 2018

Liverpool move to the top of the group with six points after three matches.

Frenchman Zinedine Zidane was in charge of Los Blancos' team that won the 2017/18 Champions League title, before he left after winning the championship.

Klopp said his team got their balance and intentions right at Huddersfield but let themselves down with sloppy final passes, which prevented them from scoring more goals on counterattacks.

The Swiss global has suddenly become the player Adam Lallana was supposed to be.

"The Fulham win has taken a little bit of pressure off us going to Liverpool", Reid said. "Someone like Shaqiri could be the answer in those tighter games".

Goalscorers aside, Xherdan Shaqiri proved influential for the hosts - an excellent through ball to Robertson helped set up Firmino's opener and it was the Swiss player's flick that then assisted Salah's first goal.

Yet half a year on, Salah's fortunes are very different at Liverpool. I think he'll continue to do that. Salah has the most points via shots on goal (30) while also racking up 17 chances created, tied for ninth-most in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool bought Fabinho for £40 million during the summer and the Brazilian made just his second start of the season on Wednesday in a 4-0 win over the Serbian side.

Although Liverpool will play Arsenal in the following fixture, the Reds' fixture list isn't too hard. "The whole game was like that, but it was good to see and to have him back". But it was no surprise to see that a Champions League night would suit him because obviously he excelled for Monaco in that competition.

If third-placed Chelsea avoid defeat at Burnley on Sunday he will become the club's first manager to go undefeated in his first 10 Premier League games. Now that he has proven his worth and Liverpool are struggling with injury, it is the ideal opportunity for Klopp to play the midfielder.
