Liverpool v Rubin Kazan Tips – A winning Anfield debut for Klopp
Jurgen Klopp will be getting his first taste of being manager on home turf on Thursday evening when Rubin Kazan come to town.
October 21st, 2015
Jurgen Klopp is being looked upon as a Messiah on Merseyside, the new boss bringing a change in Liverpool’s playing style which was evident on Saturday against Spurs at White Hart Lane. That game ended in stalemate, although there were plenty of positives for Liverpool and they have the chance to build upon that when they return to European action on Thursday evening.
There has been much talk about Klopp being the man who could bring Liverpool their first ever Premier League title at the end of the season, however we feel that this is being just a tad unrealistic and the new boss will be looking to secure Liverpool’s second win in their last eleven outings, hardly the thing that champions are made of.
To be honest, there have been far too many draws on the board, seven from ten games to be exact. These include both of their Europa League outings with two 1-1 stalemates against Bordeaux and Sion, the latter side leading Liverpool’s group with four points followed by Liverpool and Bordeaux on two points apiece and Rubin Kazan at the foot of the table.
It would be a massive disappointment if Liverpool don’t win on Thursday against a Kazan side who are 12th in the Russian Premier League and looking in real danger of relegation. Jurgen Klopp’s new methods may take a little while to gel into place, but the Reds can certainly clinch their first Europa League win of the season and give Klopp the ideal Anfield debut.
