      or alternatively, he failed them.

      Come on mate, he got it wrong. His setup was a mess. He does make mistakes you know..

      Explain how he failed them.

      Too many changes.

      We've all been talking about how tough the match is against Wolves at their ground. The consensus was that our recent 2-0 victory was very impressive, and a marker for our title aspirations.

      Yet, we went there this time and made 7 changes to our starting lineup (Wolves made 5 changes) and our changes were considerable - including debuts for two 18 year olds. On top of that, we had Fabhino and Milner playing in a different position than they played in the 2-0 victory.

      Our previous match had a midfield of Henderson, Fabinho, Keita, Shaqiri, and our forward 3 of Mane, Salah, Firmino (albeit we played a 2-3-1). This time, we played Jones, Keita, Milner, and Shaqiri in a flat 4, with Origi and Sturridge ahead of them. That is a massive difference.

      Our back 4 was also a big concern with Moreno, Lovren, Fabinho, Camacho compared with Milner, Lovren, VVD, Robertson in the previous match. As it happens, Lovren lasted minutes and was replaced with a 16 year old Hoever. He played well in parts, but was also open to attack - and Wolves almost, and should have scored from a simple mistake of his.

      The team was always going to be very disjointed and struggling to attack with the lack of the ball flow and movement.

      Then, on top of that, the formation was completely different to our usual games. Playing a 4-4-2 (or at times a 4-4-1-1) hindered the team. The players themselves didn't seem to know what they were doing in the formation either. At times, I'd see Milner playing in central defence with Camacho AWOL (so no cover on the right side). Looked more like a back 3.

      Other times I recall Shaqiri back there helping out. Meanwhile Origi and Sturridge were in the centre circle trying to get a touch of the ball. It was just a complete mess. No wonder why we struggled to create chances.

      That was all down to Klopp who set them up for the match.

      There's always a lot of luck in football. Sometimes you can make these kind of decisions and get lucky. To be fair, we nearly got lucky in this one - but it didn't work. We lost, and Klopp needs to take accountability for his decisions. He took it too easy against a strong Wolves team, who made fewer changes.

      That and there was always going to be a reaction from Chelsea after Sarri's comments.

      Chelsea as a club right now is in a crisis.

      Wouldn't surprise me if Sarri drops Kepa for the rest of the season (as long as his there).
