Rangers vs. Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp- we need to alter our defensive strategy

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has acknowledged that his team’s defense has been their downfall this season and has noted how much they need to “go back to the basics.”

Since the Reds have only managed to keep two clean sheets across all competitions this season, the defense has come under intense scrutiny. Klopp attributes this to the players’ lack of intensity.

“We have conceded similar goals with teams going through the same gaps. The problem we have is a brave way of defending. We need intensity and if we don’t do that then it’s a problem. We have to be more compact.

“Defending is an art, and it worked for us really well for a long time. But with it not working you realise you have to go back to the basics,” Klopp said at a pre-match press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Rangers.

The Reds saw their poor start to the season continue over the weekend when Brighton and Hove Albion held them to a 3-3 draw at Anfield.

Klopp side will be looking at getting back to winning ways on Tuesday just like they did defeating Ajax 2-1 after a humiliating 4-1 defeat in Naples to Napoli.

However, Klopp believed the game would not come easy, expecting Rangers to put up a fight against his side.

He said, “Rangers are a good football team and well coached. They had an exceptional season in Europe last season. That’s what we have to prepare for. We expect a proper fight, a real fight.”
