  • Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes he has enough talent to go around this season
  • Liverpool was embarrassed by Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup
  • Cody Gakpo joining the Reds has yet to completely impress fans

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident that his players can return to their winning ways and has confirmed that there will be no more moves for the club in the remaining days of the January transfer window.

Speaking with beIN Sports, Klopp assured Liverpool fans that he is no longer going to make moves as they look towards building something in Anfield Stadium moving forward.

"No, no, no. Nothing will happen in this transfer window, not at all. It's all good with this squad," Klopp mentioned.

Liverpool fans were sent into a spiral after their dismal performance in the fourth round of the English FA Cup, beaten by an improbable Brighton & Hove Albion side 2-1.

Harvey Elliott struck first for the Reds in the 30th minute only for his efforts to be negated by Brighton's Lewis Dunk ricocheting the ball of his foot off a shot from Tariq Lamptey to draw level.

Disaster would bite Liverpool in the ankles after a set-piece ended up with Japanese winger Kaoru Mitoma having the ball right in front of the Liverpool goal and fired home the match-winner in stoppage time to send the Reds off the FA Cup.

The once-vaunted Liverpool defense looked exceptionally porous against the upstart Brighton & Hove Albion side and Klopp's frustrations became evident in the 59th minute.

Klopp opted to use three of his five substitutions as he brought on James Milner, Jordan Henderson, and Darwin Nunez to relieve Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Elliott.

While the group showed some promise, the Seagulls were simply the more polished team on that day and concerns about Liverpool's contention in the English Premier League soon arose.

Currently, Klopp's side is ninth in the domestic league with 29 points (tied with Chelsea) and are 10 points removed from a sure spot in the UEFA Champions League next season as they trail fourth-place Manchester United.

Dutch wonderkid Cody Gakpo has been Liverpool's only signing in the winter window after putting on a stellar performance in the 2022 FIFA World Cup with the Netherlands.

Gakpo's announcement in mid-December made Liverpool fans ecstatic after putting on a major showing at the 2022 edition of the FIFA World Cup.

Despite his addition, Liverpool has taken a massive step back this season after their championship run in the 2019-20 season and a third-place finish in 2020-21.

A lot of things are going wrong for Liverpool this season and there may not be enough time for them to rectify those mistakes.

With their exit from the FA Cup, Liverpool fans' long season has only gotten even more unbearable.
