Jurgen Klopp has had a frustrating time with Liverpool this season

It has been almost 2 years since Jurgen Klopp took the managerial reins at Liverpool, yet it seems he has failed to provide any kind of lift to Liverpool Football Club. It seems like Liverpool are still stuck in a crisis period, with some flashes of brilliance here and there.

There can be absolutely no excuse from Klopp‘s side regarding Liverpool current form, which stands at 1 win from last 7 games.

Here, are 5 mistakes that Klopp has made in this season thus far: -

#5 James Milner‘s continued absence

Milner yet to feature consistently in Liverpool 's midfield
Milner yet to feature consistently in Liverpool's midfield

This is quite difficult to understand. Milner moved to Liverpool from Manchester City, with a view to play in his preferred position of central midfield. But, so far in his time at Liverpool, he has been used at left-back, or he has been left on the bench.

Even his involvement in Liverpool's midfield has been minimal due to Klopp 's preference to play Henderson, Wijnaldum and Emre Can. But, the problem here is neither of these three players like to sit deep and protect the back four, and instead, are keen to go forward and link up with the forwards.

This is where James Milner's ability is being missed. He has the ability to sit deep, break-up the play, provide protection to the back four and allow other midfielders beside him to move forward and link up with the attackers.
