Klopp angrily rejects comments about Liverpool tactics ahead of West Brom clash
By Matt Bullin
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has responded angrily to claims that his side lack a ‘Plan B’ ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Brom.
Liverpool are enjoying a season of mixed results, and the Reds currently sit third in the Premier League.
Klopp’s side are five points behind Spurs in second, and are two points clear of Manchester City, who occupy fourth and have a game in hand.
Last time out Liverpool earned a hard fought victory against Stoke as Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho both struck in the second half to cancel out Jon Walters’ opener and hand their side a 2-1 win.
With the win at the bet365 Stadium, the Reds made it six matches unbeaten in the Premier League and have now claimed 12 points from a possible 18.

However despite the Reds decent run of form Klopp has responded to claims that he doesn’t know how to switch tactics if things aren’t going well.
Speaking in The Telegraph, the German said: ““I’ve never thought about or listened to things like this.
“Actually I lose a bit of respect if people say things like this. If somebody speaks to me about Plan A or Plan B I don’t really understand this, because it’s never been the case.
“This season [we lost games] not because we didn’t have a plan B but because we had difficulties in different games.”
Next up for Liverpool is a trip to the Hawthorns to take on Tony Pulis’ West Brom side, where they will look to continue their top four push.
