Liverpool face a crucial clash against Tottenham tonight (Thursday) as they look to get their title defence back on track.
And Liverpool owners FSG will have a ‘serious chat’ about sacking Jurgen Klopp if the Premier League champions fail to finish in the top four this season.
Defeat at Tottenham tonight would see Jose Mourinho’s men overtake them – leaving Liverpool in sixth spot, seven points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
Ex-Anfield defender Glen Johnson reckons it’s already too late for Liverpool’s title chances – and has warned Klopp could face the chop if his side miss out on the Champions League spots.
“I don’t think Liverpool will have enough to win the league this year, but I expect them to get the top four,” Johnson told CheltenhamGuides.com.
“But it will be tough. There are six clubs fighting for the top four again.
“It will be super harsh for Klopp to be under any pressure given the success that he’s had, but we know that owners once they get success they want to keep repeating it.
“So I think there would be a discussion to have if he did finish outside the top four.
