Liverpool are in a rough spot ahead of their clash with Stoke City in the League Cup semi-finals this week. The Reds were beaten by West Ham United in a 2-0 shutout and have needed to rely on late-game heroics far too many times for fans’ liking.
If Jurgen Klopp plans to have his team ready to take on Stoke City, they need to be prepared to play a complete game or risk a loss in the crucial road leg of the contest.
