Jurgen Klopp’s seventh-season syndrome

After 19 matches, Liverpool are languishing in the Premier League mid-table, 18 points behind leaders Arsenal, having played a game more. They are also way adrift of Newcastle United, currently holding the fourth Champions League spot. The season has been underwhelming for the Merseyside club, to put it mildly. Manager Jurgen Klopp seems to have accepted that his team is struggling at the moment and has redrawn his targets.
