A Lovely Message To All Liverpool Fans If they Want To Defend Their Premier League Title

I am a boy speaking from the perspective of a Liverpool die-hard fan.

Some people might say this is just the first game of the season. But from preseason, we have seen that this team is going to struggle defensively and concede lots of goals this season. If we must defend our title, we must carry out the following observation of our last game. 

1. We need to fix our defensive issues quickly; if we could concede 3 goals against Leeds, I can't predict what would happen when we play Chelsea who has refreshed their attack with four good players. 

2. Gomez needs to be replaced by looking into the market if Klopp can't use Matip as Van Dijk pair; van Dijk is not getting enough support from him.

3. We loose the balls too often in vital areas; we play some times like we lack cohesion. 

4. Another attacker to freshen up things in the attack department would be appreciated; Firmino is becoming too sluggish on the ball. 

5. Conceding goals is not bad but the way they came cast a deep shadow on our hope of defending a title we won by a margin of 18 points from a second-placed Man City. 

6. Our full-backs must improve defensively which is their primary duty before contributing to goals. 

7. We need consistency in performance. Keita was lost today. Our midfield needs to be more creative. I thought Klopp would try the 4-2-3-1 formation today by bringing in Minamino as he did in the preseason. I knew Klopp would continue with his rigid 4-3-3 when the season starts. That 4-2-3-1 gives our defense coverage and made us stronger going forward as well. But Klopp abandoned it.
