Klopp must relax spreading balls wide and return to tiki-taka


Liverpool suffered another setback in their bid to mount a title challenge in the Premier League

Arsenal vs Liverpool | 3-2
Arsenal celebrate victory over Liverpool 

The Reds came off worse against Arsenal in a clash that was 'officiated and decided in a controversial way'.

Liverpool were a goal down at first half as Darwin Nunez equaliser wasn't properly protected leaving Bukayo Saka to put the Gunners back to a goal lead before the end of the first stoppage.

The Reds came back strong  early in the second half, thanks to goal from Roberto Firmino. However that was quickly erased by refree Michael Oliver's decision to award Mikel  Arteta's men a penalty following Thiago's challenge on Gabriel Jesus.

Saka wasted no time to grab his second of the day and it ended 3-2 to the favour of the Londoners who are currently enjoying their ride at top of the Premier League table.

Lfc Rumour's verdict on the Reds performance and Klopp's tactics

We are cu months away from the summer transfer window and ahead of the winter market.

Liverpool seems to have gotten away easily, tactically average last season but their hunger was kept alive. Apparently it propelled the Merseysiders to a quadruple chase where they succeeded in bagging two from four losing in the major competitions.

Players are dwindling, often approaching their twilight, new feet would find it difficult to adapt playing alongside tired legs.

The flank to flank tactics wouldn't be best for  the Reds at this point when players are worn out. They could re collect their form if they adopt a vast tiki taka tactic instead.

Too much dependence on the flanks makes the Reds very predictable and their game cumbersome. Salah especially, is too predictable, should switch from the right wing to left to create a different pace to the game.

What are your suggestions about the Reds struggles this season, what approach should they take to improve their performances?
