Liverpool's goals against column in the league standings now reads 40 - more than relegation-threatened Middlesbrough - and Klopp wants to fix his leaky defence next season.
The German said: "Extra competition?" We've managed to capitalise hugely on the fact that he chose to come to Crystal Palace. He's looked far more willing to come off of his lunch to punch away aerial balls regardless of bodies in the vicinity that may be infringing him - he used to be far more timid and frantic in that department. "I think they have played together now five, six or seven games, so having him not involved, of course, is not the best news for Crystal Palace".
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool have no interest in signing out-of-favor Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
"When the ball is in the air Christian is an important danger and he's another player with confidence on a great jog".
"Look at the injuries we've had - not a lot of muscle injuries which is always a sign of intensity". If we let them cross 50 balls it's pretty likely he will have some unsafe headers.
Liverpool take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday. Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan and Lucas Leiva are all doubts for the encounter at Anfield, having been absent from training at Melwood this week due to various knocks.
Motion for new trial could delay sentencing for Cardell Hayes
As we previously reported, the New Orleans Saints star was shot and killed by Hayes after a road rage incident on April 9, 2016. No additional shell casings have been found, he said, and no witnesses other than Hayes have pointed to a second gun.
Klopp missed out on winning silverware in his first year at Liverpool as they lost both the finals of both the EFL Cup and the Europa League, but he is hopeful of securing at least one trophy before the end of his contract in 2022.
Less than two years on Klopp has Liverpool poised for a return to Champions League football, illustrating why he is so highly regarded for his work on the sidelines. Loic Remy and James McArthur have also returned to contention.
Elsewhere, Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Pape Souare are all long-term absentees for Sam Allardyce's Eagles. The last team to win three in a row there were Chelsea in October 2005.
"We have managed with Roberto Firmino the last few weeks, kept him out of a few sessions, so it's not that".
Liverpool have won their last two Premier League games against Palace, after going four without a victory against them (D1 L3). He has made big steps. "[Wilfried] Zaha, [Andros] Townsend, Christian, [Jason] Puncheon, they are really good footballers", Klopp said in Thursday's media conference.
