Steven Caulker unlikely to play for Liverpool again

Published 35 Comments

Liverpool defender Steven Caulker is unlikely to play for the club again after falling down the pecking order at Anfield. 

The Liverpool Echo report that the defender, who is currently on loan at the Reds from Championship outfit QPR, won't be handed another opportunity to impress under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp before the close of the campaign. 

Caulker has endured a torrid period at Anfield and hasn't been named in any of the club's 18-man matchday squads since mid-February.

In fact, the ex-Tottenham man has only made four appearances for the club since signing for them on a temporary basis back in January. 

Despite manager Klopp opting to rest a number of his key players as his side were beaten at the hands of Swansea City this past weekend, Caulker once again failed to force his way into the first-team reckoning.

Caulker is fit 

The report from the Liverpool Echo claims that Caulker is fit and ready to play, but it appears that Klopp doesn't see a place for him in his side. 


Ultimately, then, Caulker looks set to return to QPR at the end of this campaign, but it's far from certain as to whether he will remain at the club for the 2016/17 season. 

For Liverpool, their focus will be on this week's Europa League semi-final second-leg clash against Spanish outfit Villarreal. 

The Reds, who have already eliminated Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund from the competition, head into the tie at Anfield 1-0 down but will still be confident of overcoming their opponents on home soil. 

Liverpool will be better 

Klopp has already insisted that his side will be better in the return leg. As per the club's official site, the Liverpool boss stated: “We have to accept it [the Swansea result] because our performance wasn’t good enough.

“I’m especially a little bit disappointed because if we had played our normal game for 90 minutes we could have won the game, but we didn’t play a normal game and that was the problem.

“We got it back to 2-1 but then we conceded again and the goals were too simple, too easy for Swansea. I’m not looking for an excuse and I think we could have played better but we didn’t.


“We played like we played and I saw it for the whole 90 minutes and there was not a lot I enjoyed, to be honest. We have to think about it and we have to recover, which is very important, and we will play much, much better than we did on Sunday.

“We have to accept the result, which is what we do, and then we work and we will be better on Thursday.”
