Liverpool struggles against defensive teams.

One of the most successful clubs in English Football, Liverpool have not won the league title since 1990.

Ever since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp in 2015, things have changed and the club is moving in a positive direction. The Reds are one of the more dangerous sides in the world right now and is capable of beating any team on their day.

They have scored the most goals in the Champions League this season and are also the second most scoring team in the Premier League.

Although the team is looking like it can return to its glory days soon, there are certain problems which Klopp needs to address before the team can win any silverware.

Here is a look at 5 problems Liverpool needs to fix before looking to end their Premier League drought:

#5 They need to find a Plan B

Southampton v Liverpool - Premier League
Jurgen Klopp needs to find a Plan B.

Against Swansea City, West Brom Albion and recently Manchester United, the Reds lost some valuable points as the opposing teams decided to sit deep and not allow the side any room in the final third.

Despite having the majority of possession in all of these games, the Reds failed to create meaningful chances and the vast amount of possession also came in their own half. Liverpool does not have any plan B while going into such games and therefore, ends up getting frustrated.

If Klopp wants his side to contest seriously for the league title next season, then he needs to find a Plan B for going into such games, otherwise, the opponents will keep using this as a weakness.

Signing a traditional number 9 could be a solution to Liverpool's problems as that will provide the club with more aerial treat and strength in the opposition box, which they currently lack.

The club could target players like Sam Vokes, Ben Dost, and Eden Dzeko in the upcoming transfer window.
