Jurgen Klopp won the Premier League title, on June 26th, 2020 for Liverpool. Unfortunately, the current Premier League season has not been fruitful for Klopp and his men.

Subsequently, their transfer decisions have been questionable. The reigning champions have always held the opinion that they do not require any further additions to strengthen themselves.

Klopp questioned by Liverpool icon Steve McMahon over transfer failures

Former Liverpool midfielder Steve McMahon doubted Klopp’s effectiveness in the transfer market. In an interview with TALK Sport on February 20th, 2021, he said, “When you do not achieve the results you want, it is natural to ask yourself ‘am I using the correct players, in the positions that suit them best.”

However, in the recent transfer window (summer and winter) Jurgen Klopp has addressed some problematic areas. Nonetheless, he has left others unchecked. Liverpool required another attacking midfielder and recruited Diego Jota and Thiago Alcantara to fulfill that role. While doing that Jurgen Klopp forgot to include more central defenders into his list. Due to the absence of Virgil Van Djik, the Reds have been defensively sore. The options of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are available, but due to their injury records, they cannot provide the quality that the German requires.

Jurgen Klopp is confident his team will do well against Everton

Liverpool will meet Everton in the Premier League, on February 20th, 2021. Also, this would be the 238th time that the Reds have faced the Blues in the Merseyside derby.

Consequently, Jurgen Klopp has faced the Toffees a total of thirteen times, after he is appointed Liverpool’s manager. He has recorded seven wins and six draws against their rivals of fifty-nine years. The match will take place at Liverpool’s home stadium, Anfield. Moreover, it will be a difficult one for the fifty-three-year-old German strategist, due to their current slump in form.

Nonetheless, he mentioned to the Liverpool Echo, on February 19th, 2021, “We will play emotionally and win.” Jurgen Klopp needs a win against Everton to break a recent myth, ‘that Liverpool is incapable of winning at home’, to reassure their fans of their intention to win the title.
