Transfer window casts shadow on Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp said he has a team he likes, but he also wishes he secured his transfer targets.

Liverpool couldn't face much harder opponents than Crystal Palace this Saturday, in their first home game of the season. Ordinarily that would sound preposterous but the South Londoners will fight for their fourth straight win at Anfield. That's something even Manchester United or Chelsea at their peak haven't been able to do.

It presents a hard task for Jurgen Klopp and his team to end this disconcerting run. They've shown to be more adept against quality sides and faced down greater challenges...

It is the first minute of injury time. As Hoffenheim's Nadiem Amiri prepares to take a free kick, Benjamin Hubner is at the far side of the area, tussling with Emre Can. But by the time Amiri's cross floats into the area, Hubner has gone. He has slipped away, moving up to slot into the space between Dominic Solanke and Joel Matip. He rises into the night air and powers his free header ... straight over the bar. On such moments rest entire campaigns.

Liverpool had much to be proud of in their Champions...

Liverpool appear to have one foot in the Champions League group stages after a 2-1 win in Hoffenheim on Tuesday night. Yet despite a fine first leg result in Germany there is clearly plenty for Jurgen Klopp to sort out defensively.

The Merseysiders played some good football and at times tore through a team that hadn't lost at home for 16 months, but they once again looked vulnerable at the back and needed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to make several important saves, including a crucial first half stop...
