Why is everyone obsessed with the idea that we need another defender coming in. Everyone has actually stepped up will with all the injuries. The issue as far as I can tell is scoring goals not letting them in.

I think though that part of the problem stems from not using specialist players in their proper position meaning that you're only getting - say - 60% of their true ability out of them. Having Fabinho and Hendo playing defence may feel OK because we aren't leaking goals but losing their impact in the midfield means we are losing their ability to help create goals and build attacks. Its a balance issue - at the minute I'd say we look out of balance.

I don't think its as simple as that. If we can play better defenders it means we can defend higher thus improving the press or enable the full backs to push on giving us better width. We also miss Fabinho and Henderson's influence in their correct positions. Having better options at the back can have a large impact on our attacking play.

Only 1 team in the top 11 have conceded more goals than Liverpool. No team has scored more.

Irish I think we all know that’s because of the Villa game. A game in which VVD played might I add.
The lack of creativity lately has been since Matip got injured which tells you that although we are not conceding much it’s at the expense of the attack. We miss Fabinho in midfield, we miss Hendo in midfield, the fullbacks are having to cover for the centre backs more, we are playing deeper. All of this effects the balance of the team which has been a well oiled machine for more than 2 years now.

I can’t believe some of the posts I read on here! So tell me if Fabinho gets injured next who we going to play it’s cb, Hendo and Milner? It was a mistake selling Lovren and not replacing him, unfortunately our youth aren’t at a stage where they can step up and klopp clearly doesn’t trust Phillips. Trent isn’t his usual self and that maybe down to the uncertainty at the back. As much as I like jones he’s only had as many games because fab is playing cb and others ahead of him have been injured. Our team is considerably weaker at the minute and it’s showing!

Interesting article I read today which makes sense to me.

Its as johnnyr (and others) have said, we are playing players out of position.

When you do that, its not just how well the player plays in their 'new' position that matters, its the effect of moving them away from their 'old' position too.

The article pointed to Fernandinho at City last year having to fill in in defence. The killer for city was not how well he played at CB, but the fact they had to take him out of midfield.

The same could be said of Fabinho and, in the last game, Hendo too. I do think if Hendo had been in the middle of the park driving the team on we would at least have got the equaliser.

I really don't know how or if we will get someone in, but we do absolutely need at least one CB this window. We have to get our engine room back to their engine room rather than trying to steer and drive from the back seat!

We’ve no senior cb’s our best cm’s are playin at the back is this for real?
It’s a domino effect simple as!
Hendo playing cb nullified Trent and it was for all to see on Monday!
We finished Monday nite with 3 mids in the back line!
