Liverpool are 10 points behind current Premier League leaders Manchester City, who have a game on their hands, following a dismal streak that has seen them win only twice in their last nine games.

Only one point separates fourth-ranked Liverpool from Chelsea and West Ham United, while seventh-ranked Everton could overtake them in the standings if they win both of their featured matches.
Former Reds central defender Dejan Lovren is not optimistic about his former team’s chances of retaining the title as a result of their injury crisis at the heart of the defense, and hopes they won’t miss a result between the four. first.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be without Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez potentially for the rest of the season, while Joel Matip will also be injured.
Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have been deployed in central defense for a while, with inexperienced duo Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips providing cover.
Liverpool brought in Ben Davies from the Preston North End championship team and Ozan Kabak on loan from Schalke last month, and it remains to be seen whether landing the two defenders will be enough to keep their slim title hopes alive.
Klopp is reportedly upset with the Liverpool management because they refused to sign Napoli central Kalidou Koulibaly, with a £ 100 million rating, last month, and the German will now have to do with what he has until the summer. .
