Although Liverpool beat Huddersfield Town on Saturday, the jury is still out on their defence. The defeat to Tottenham Hotspur exposed glaring weaknesses in the Reds defence so, in the latest edition of Team Whispers, we look at three centre backs Jürgen Klopp should target in January.
We also preview the upcoming trip to the London Stadium to face struggling West Ham United and run the rule over transfer target Thomas Lemar of Monaco.
Klopp will be determined to steal a march on their rivals by sealing three points against the Hammers before all five of the teams above them in the Premier League play on Sunday.
The German tactician is likely to bolster his back-line with at least one new defender following the failure to land a centre-half in the summer and a couple of shaky displays of late, so we highlight three players who can shore up his defence.
Finally, we explain why Liverpool are frontrunners to sign the highly-rated Frenchman Lemar ahead of rivals Arsenal and look at how the 21-year-old could fit into Klopp's system.
