While there's plenty to think about for Jurgen Klopp, there is perhaps no bigger problem than the form of Roberto Firmino.

With summer signing Diogo Jota still a few weeks away from returning from injury, Klopp may be rueing his January decision to let Takumi Minamino leave in January.

Given Firmino's current form and lack of confidence in front of goal - he wasted a good chance against Everton by taking an extra touch and allowing Michael Keane to block his shot - Minamino might have been a valuable rival to the No 9's spot between now and May. Minamino has half of Firmino's goal return in just 514 league minutes this season, with the Liverpool false nine managing six goals in 1,977 minutes.

Firmino only managed 12 across all competitions, down on 16 and 27 in the previous two seasons, despite Liverpool winning 99 points on their way to the league title.

With Divock Origi having failed to produce a goalscoring contribution in a meaningful game since a 5-2 win over Everton in December 2019, Liverpool have little option but to persist with an out-of-sorts Firmino until Jota is back.

Klopp has to hope Firmino can get somewhere near back to his best or that Jota can instantly pick back up the scoring hot streak he was on pre-injury, else the Europa League - or even worse the Europa Conference League - may beckon.
