West Ham vs Liverpool Match Review: 3 Things We Learned – On Klopp, Benteke Ruining His Career and Missing Players

Liverpool Signs Former Borussia Star

Jurgen Klopp has a lot of work on his hands
Former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp may have taken over the helm at Liverpool Football Club, but things have not really improved. Klopp’s time in England has been one of mixed results as his team have decimated opponents such as Chelsea, Manchester City, Southampton and Leicester in their own backyards, while getting flattened themselves at the hands of Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Watford and now West Ham.

Things have not magically turned around for the Reds, but then again, no one said it would. Rodgers Reds revolution has set us back and it will be Jurgen Klopp’s biggest task of his career to bring us back to the top again.

Christian Benteke is wasting his time here
Belgium forward Benteke is ruining his career at Liverpool. The manner in which he plays football does not suit the manner in which our team goes about their game. The only players who actually cross the ball in our team are our two full backs, and even then they don’t do it too often. Having a player like Benteke is useless when you have a player like Jordon Ibe in your team. 19-year-old Ibe has given our opponents a lot of reassurance because whenever he’s been given the ball, nothing has come of it. Benteke may have scored seven goals for us here, but I still stand by the prediction I made for another website when the season first began. This boy is going to be a big flop, and it’s not going to be his fault.

Henderson and Milner were desperately missed
Jordan Henderson and James Milner missed our Hammers defeat due to injury and I believe that their absence was a massive reason why we lost. We started out with two holding midfielders occupying the middle of the park for us and what was missed was the running and forward passing that our captain and vice-captain would provide. Emre Can for me is a very poor box-to-box midfielder and I just do not feel excited when he runs up the pitch with the ball at his feet as I would if it were Henderson, Milner or , excuse me for this, Steven Gerrard.
