Liverpool were beaten 3-0 by Napoli this weekend which now means Jurgen Klopp has failed to win the past four pre-season friendlies.
The last win came vs Bradford City earlier this month and since then the Reds have lost to Dortmund, Sevilla and Napoli while drawing 2-2 vs Sporting.
And this has caused a fair bit of fear amongst the Liverpool fans since the Reds will take on Manchester City in the Community Shield next weekend.
While some have claimed that Liverpool might not be able to get their act straight before they take on City but Jurgen Klopp has warned that everyone will see a different Liverpool at Wembley.
Klopp said(as reported by the Telegraph): “I think the worst thing that could have happened is if we won all our games without the six players, everyone flying from last year and then getting the problems in the season.
“It was of course not good. We lost a couple of games in pre-season already.
“I’m pretty sure we will play better football and it’s necessary as well.
“It’s a strange pre-season because everybody tells you constantly congratulations, congratulations, and before the game, Napoli were very nice and gave us a bottle of red wine.
“It’s a new situation. We have prepared everybody as well as possible. We have to fight at the start of the season 100 per cent with all we have and the good thing is if the opponents want to analyse us now then they think ‘easy job’ – but we will be a different animal next week.
“Even City see it like this. They are the big favourites and all the others try to beat them. We are one of these teams.
“At least we should give it a try, but we have to play better football – and we will play better football,”
Liverpool will take on French club Lyon at the Stade de Genève in what will be their final pre-season game before the 2019-20 season.
