Goals from Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah were enough to get Klopp’s side out of jail on this occasion, but according to the ex-Tottenham midfielder, the head coach must take some responsibility for how badly the afternoon went. Speaking on talkSPORT’s new Gameday Phone-In, O’Hara  sent a message to Klopp about the need to sign a midfielder following an injury picked up to Thiago at Craven Cottage.

He said: “After the Thiago injury, Liverpool’s midfield ended up being Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Harvey Elliott – come on, get your chequebook out! “You’ve got to sign a midfielder because if Thiago picks up more injuries, they’re struggling!”

Klopp disagreed though, and again hinted after the game that Liverpool wouldn’t overreact and dip into the transfer market to cover their injury issues in midfield. He said: “We will see. A transfer must make sense now and in the long term.

“We have eight midfielders, we still have enough midfielders. It’s not that we lack midfielders, it’s just some of them are injured. “And I know, part of the football business is now getting nervous. We are not. But this is not a good situation, I don’t like it at all. “We have to see how we react to that – for sure, not panicking.”
