Yesterday, the Reds struggled to establish a solid foothold in the game and were lackluster all over the field.

Therefore, praise must be given to the Championship champions from last season for their diligence and adherence to Marco Silva’s game plan, but our No. 14 has acknowledged his team ‘need to improve rapidly’.

“Yes, I think so. Disappointing, but probably the best thing is we didn’t lose the game,” the Reds captain told LFC TV (via Liverpool Echo).

“We had a couple of chances at the end to win, but overall I think we can play a lot better than we were today. So yeah, overall, disappointed with the result and the performance.

“I felt as though we looked a little bit lethargic at times, we didn’t play the way we normally do, and you get punished in the Premier League. But there’s still a long way to go and we need to improve quickly.”

Prior to Darwin Nunez’s introduction soon after halftime, it was difficult to predict where a goal would come from.

The Uruguayan had a significant impact when he joined the game, just as he did in the defeat of Manchester City in the Community Shield last week.

The 23-year-old scored our first equalizer and then contributed to our second as we earned a point and headed back to Merseyside.

Later today, when City travels to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United, they have the opportunity to gain an early lead in the fight for the championship.

Although it won’t be simple, Pep Guardiola’s team will be more motivated after seeing their major title challengers lose in their opening match.

Liverpool began proceedings in the second-half with far more aggression and intent and actually came close to finding an effort via unlikely scorer Ibrahima Konate.

The Frenchman raced into the opposing half in a manner some might suggest was Joel Matip-esque before attempting to catch Kepa Arrizabalaga off his line with a speculative effort.

The shot went just wide of the post in what was a clear warning sign for Graham Potter’s men.

The Liverpool confirms midfield transfer as Jürgen Klopp explains plan and Diogo Jota injury update

Liverpool have confirmed a January transfer move while Jürgen Klopp has been speaking about his summer plan and offered a Diogo Jota injury update.

Jürgen Klopp has told his team that the Reds would be making significant changes amid a transfer overhaul, but that won’t happen until the summer when several of his players’ contracts expire.

“At Borussia Dortmund, it was clear when I left (in 2015), I said something has to change,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “It is a different situation (here). Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change.

“So, as far as I am concerned, what I hear — unless someone tells me (different) — I will not go. So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff.

“We will see but that is for the future, like summer or whatever. Not now. I have space and time to think about it.

“We have to play better football now. We cannot play and say: ‘OK, these are the problems but next season we don’t have them anymore’. That is a really long time. I cannot promise we will fly tomorrow but what I want to promise is that we really fight and everyone can see it.”

But if they manage to finish in the top four this season, it will be much easier to make such changes. Without Champions League football for a season, it will be considerably more difficult to sign Jude Bellingham and other major targets.

Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on Diogo Jota’s fitness as he continues his recovery from the long-term injury that has already forced him to miss the World Cup.

“I don’t know exactly how long but he looks really good,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “He’s out there on the pitch doing a lot of stuff already. Another few weeks?”

When asked if Jota would be available for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid next month, Klopp said: “From my point of view, yes but I don’t know.”

Colombian winger Luis Díaz is also on the recovery trail. He posted an update from the AXA Training Centre on social media yesterday.

At the AMEX Stadium on Saturday night, two goals in the second half from Solly March and another from substitute Danny Welbeck condemned Liverpool to a 3-0 Premier League loss.

In response, Klopp expressed his deep concern by evaluating the reverse without comparison over the course of his 22 years as manager.

“It’s my job to make the right line-up and set up the right tactics,” said the Reds boss. “I had really nice moments doing that but, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s only a few minutes since the game, but I can’t remember a worse game.
