“The recruitment has been spot on after some spectacular failures before that. He will be at Liverpool until the end of his contract in 2022 at least.”

We 100% agree with everything Pearce claims.

If Liverpool exited the Champions League in the group stages and failed to finish in the top four, we’d still want Klopp in charge going into next season.

Although our hopes for this campaign are much higher than that!

We’re currently two points off Manchester City and undefeated in the race for the title and are top of a Champions League group – despite irritating away defeats to Napoli and Red Star.

This weekend, we travel to Watford for a top flight clash before a tricky trip to Paris. Two wins would be very handy – and something we think we’re capable of considering the brilliance of Virgil van Dijk at the back and the manner in which Mo Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri have come into wonderful attacking form.
