Ouch! Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp gets burned by Harlem Globetrotters

Roberto Firmino has struggled in front of goal in recent weeks

Liverpool enter the worldwide break sitting seventh on the Premier League table.

"A lack of concentration has cost Liverpool yet again and whenever they concede chances they are always big chances".

Georginio Wijnaldum - whose infamous goal record away from home I mentioned in the build-up to Sunday's encounter - summed up both Liverpool's current luck and ineptitude in front of goal when his clever first-half effort from a corner hit the post and somehow did not go over the line, followed by an unsuccessful goalmouth scramble for Jürgen Klopp's side.

"You do think, where would Liverpool be without Philippe Coutinho right now?"

"It just sums Liverpool up defensively".

Women accused in Kim Jong Nam's death plead not guilty
The two are accused of smearing Kim Jong Nam's face with a toxic VX nerve agent, killing him at Kuala Lumpur airport February 13. After about an hour in the clinic, Kim was put in an ambulance to nearby Putrajaya Hospital, but the 45-year-old died en route.

"When you are defending you have to be really aggressive but when you are on the ball you have to be composed".

Speaking after Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Newcastle, Carragher said: "Because he doesn't play much now, whenever we talk about Sturridge we keep going back to that season when Liverpool almost won the league - he was devastating with Luis Suarez".

This issue may be linked to the recent struggles of Liverpool's forwards.

Jurgen Klopp also weighed into the debate last week when asked on his views, slamming Sky's plans to create potential upheaval in Liverpool's festive fixtures.

Liverpool have won just once in six matches in all competitions in September, which has led to some criticism.

Klopp is looking forward to the clash with Benitez, saying: "I met Rafa once when he was manager of Liverpool, we beat him 5-0 with Mainz".

"Liverpool don't switch quick enough between the two". Over the years they have played more than 26,000 exhibition games in 122 countries and territories.

As well as the stewarding issue, they are anxious about transport and how fans will get back home ahead of Christmas Day. "With one good result or a couple of good results, they will find themselves back in the top four".

"How many times have we all got to say that?".
