Klopp hints at more January signings after thrilling Liverpool comeback

By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens

Jurgen Klopp hinted that Liverpool could make more January signings after their thrilling comeback against Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The Anfield manager was delighted with some of his team’s play as they twice took the lead against the Gunners before being hauled back and going 3-2 behind midway through the second half.

But Joe Allen’s last-gasp equaliser secured a 3-3 draw for Liverpool, whose first two goals were scored by the outstanding Roberto Firmino.

Klopp revealed some of his players were on their last legs in the second half as the club continue to struggle with a crippling injury list.

Twenty-four hours after Steven Caulker was signed on loan from QPR for the rest of the season, the German suggested he could look to bring in more new players.

“I have no problem with the number of games, the problem is we don’t have enough players for the number of games,” Klopp told BBC Sport. “At 3-2, both teams had a low battery. We scored with a perfect pass, perfect header, perfect finish and nobody doubts it was deserved.

“We started so good and played so good football. It showed all of us how good we could be.

“Then we concede a goal from a set play and we have to work at it. Organisation is one thing and sometimes we have a little problem with concentration.

“We gave them two easy goals after we had to work really hard for our goals. We had many moments which I am happy with.”

Tottenham’s defeat against Leicester means Liverpool, who have 31 points, are now five points the fourth-placed Londoners.
