"That's something for everyone to think about, for everyone to address and make sure we put it right, especially next week against Spurs, top-four rivals.
"We kind of need to go there and get some points if we've got any chance of reaching our aims and aspirations for the season."

What next for Liverpool?

As reported by BBC, Crysencio Summerville’s winner late on Saturday, October 29 helped Leeds move out of the relegation zone to ease some pressure off Jesse Marsch.

Interestingly, Liverpool are doing quite well in the Champions League and have already secured their slot in the last 16.
