Daily Telegraph’s Matt Cutt says Jurgen Klopps has not addressed key problems at Liverpool, in Sunday Supplement.

Jurgen Klopp aiming for first Liverpool win as they face Bournemouth in League Cup

Liverpool recently lost 5-0 to Manchester City after they lost their Key man Sadio Mane on a red card for a high boot challenge on City keeper Ederson.

“It showed they don’t have a squad capable of shutting up shop – they haven’t addressed problems already there.

“I wasn’t impressed with them at Watford – they’ve conceded eight goals in two away games. I find it weird that Jurgen Klopp is going for players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Thomas Lemar, yet it’s absolutely clear they need a central defender and possibly a goalkeeper.

“I don’t get why they made Virgil van Dijk their number one target and then when they couldn’t get him, say that they’re not interested in a central defender. There are other central defenders out there that would improve Liverpool’s defence.”

He said: “Liverpool created a lot of opportunities in those 37 minutes – Klopp was disappointed they didn’t create more considering the positions they got into.

“In that period, City looked vulnerable defensively but they looked outstanding going forward, with a better forward line than last year.

“I’m not sure it told us too much. When you see a 5-0 win over Liverpool, you think it’s pretty emphatic but you want to see them tested against eleven men and someone to really go at that defence. The subsequent games in the Champions League and Premier League will do that.”
