Michael Owen hits out at Jurgen Klopp

Michael Owen is furious with Klopp’s team selection against Brighton loss.

The Reds witnessed their second home defeat in a row and are currently seven points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Liverpool legend Michael Owen believes that the squad needs a bit of variety in the midfield and didn’t have a much-attacking threat from out wide like their prior seasons.

“I often think as well that Mane when he plays and Salah they’re better when they start wide,” Owen said.

“Think of the chance Salah had early on, he needs to start wide and run inside. as soon as Firmino drops in it leaves those gaps and they come wide.

“A lot of the time this season they’ve been starting narrow and then you’ve got nowhere to run the only way you can run is out and away from the goal.

“I think Liverpool are better when they have width. They get clustered.

“They have a lot of samey players in midfield in Thiago, Wijnaldum and Milner.

“I would like to seem them stretching play a lot more, upping the tempo, winning the ball high again, committing players forward to win the ball high, they have to do it, they have to stem it themselves because they don’t have the Anfield crowd.

“You can react off the crowd, it’s a powerful thing but they can’t call upon that now they need to do it themselves to get this monkey off their back, I don’t fear for them against Manchester CIty or against better teams. It’s against packed defenders that I think they’re running out of ideas.”
