Klopp, who has been in command of the Merseyside club since October 2015, faces perhaps his most difficult period in his seven-year reign at Anfield as uncertainty clouds the club on and off the pitch.
The German’s own future is more cemented after penning a contract to 2025 last 12 months however the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, want to sell their majority share within the club while Klopp attempts to oversee a squad transition.
With Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal all spending a whole bunch of tens of millions to bridge the gap to Manchester City, the duty is harder than ever to secure a top-four finish.
Liverpool are ninth within the Premier League and can fall behind Chelsea within the standings in the event that they fall to a 3rd consecutive defeat. And Klopp shall be hoping the occasion can encourage his players to bring home victory.
