Liverpool still face same problems that derailed their 2022/23 season despite conducting 2 transfer businesses to bring in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboslai as midfield replacements.
Following their pre-season clash versus Bayern Munich in their tour to Singapore, Liverpool still face a problem in midfield that hasn’t been resolved ahead of the opening premier league fixture at Stamford Bridge versus Chelsea.
A 4-3 defeat to the German champions courtesy of goals from Cody Gakpo, Virgil van Dijk and Luis Diaz were quickly undone by the Bavarians who twice fell behind to the Reds in an all enticing 7-goal thriller.
The notable problem still remained a lack of a proper defensive midfield player to act as cover for the Midfield and Defence that faced repeated exposure from the high flying German champions.
The Reds were lucky to keep the score line decent at 4-3 thanks to Alisson Becker sweeping into action to deny Bayern Munich at key stages.
Couple with lack of midfield signings, Jurgen Klopp has an injury worry ahead of him in new signing, Alexis Mac Allister who suffered a knock in the game.
Liverpool’s no.9, Darwin Nunez appears to have returned to his normal self after missing out on a couple of chances to improve the Reds’ score line in the tie and at least win or level things up for both sides.
Defender, Joel Matip shows he is now far his peak as seen from last season, with FSG set to face more backlash over failure to bring in more players in the window after seeing the exit of at least 6 first team stars.
Troubled times ahead for Liverpool, and it seems Bayern Munich defeat is only the beginning.
