Can Liverpool loss help Arsenal beat Southampton?

Lambert wants Molineux to be a special place for his players

Jurgen Klopp has since come under fire for the Reds' bad run.

A 2-0 aggregate defeat to Southampton in the last four of the EFL Cup saw hopes of a third final in the German's 15-month reign slip through their fingers.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher offered a damming assessment of Liverpool's squad after the match, claiming Klopp has overachieved so far with the players he inherited and we are now seeing their "true quality".

"We don't have the points we want.That's not the problem - that's how it is".

Rio Tinto to offload Hunter Valley coal assets to China's Yancoal
Australia's Newcastle coal, an Asian thermal benchmark, surged more than 80 percent in 2016, snapping five years of declines. Yancoal also has an option to pay a single cash payment of $2.35 billion, Rio said .

That seems even more pertinent now as the pervading mood around Anfield is one of despondency, having seen the side fall from top of the Premier League in November.

"When you look in English stadiums especially, so many tourists haven't any connection to the club they support".

Liverpool get another chance to go on the trophy trail in the FA Cup with Wolves visiting Anfield on Saturday with a potential 11 Premier League teams capable of progressing through to the last 16.

For Liverpool manager Klopp, it is a chance gone to reach the League Cup final for a second straight season after they lost to Manchester City on penalties a year ago. "I said a few times when I came here [to the press conference] about the wind and everybody was laughing, but today was really hard, really difficult to play football with this wind".

Serena Williams hits back at reporter's claim of a "scrappy performance"

One thing we should expect is a tough and tight game, so patience could be crucial.

"You have to score in this or that situation then the game changes a little bit, not against each team, but a few teams are happy with only being 1-0 down or whatever".

"We are a good football-playing side".

However, he declared that as a coach, it is "very important" to consider the performance and vowed not to "ignore this" although he admitted he is "of course disappointed" because Liverpool "would have deserved to win the game".
