I agree with the person who did we need another backup striker. Lallana and Sturridge won't last 90 much and I'm thinking Origi us average. Sturridges contract expires soon anyway.
Getting a new CB is a bit knee jerk.
If we don't take maximum points in games before Gomez is fit enough to make an appearance it leaves us one point (two if we draw) a head of City...
How it seems that so many here forgets 2016/17 January run, or maybe that should be stall...
Defense wise we are in a better position then than we are now...
Look at the difference in prize money between finishing 1st and 4th in the premier league £6 m Last seasons moneyhttps://www.totalsportek.com/money/premier-league-prize-money/
Qualification for the quarter-finals of the CL is worth €10.5m (£9.37m) per club
Semi another €12m (£10.71m)https://www.uefa.com/insideuefa/stakeholders/clubs/news/newsid=2562024.html
That's a possible £25m in prize money. So even if a defender cost £50m, winning the Title, and getting past Bayern gives us half the money back... Win the Title and make the finals and it would have cost us £10m for a CB...
Add to that the commercial value of winning the Title, and the ability to attract new talent v.s. another "also ran" season surely you can see it is the only prudent thing to do...?
And just because Klopp says he won't does not mean he is right... He wasn't right when he had to be "persuaded"
to buy Salah a player he did not want
