Liverpool goal scoring great John Aldridge believes Reds boss Jurgen Klopp needs to get back to back in Saturday's Premier League showdown against Tottenham at Anfield.

Liverpool's promising season fell apart during a disastrous January, as they crashed out of the FA Cup and EFL Cup, while also seeing their Premier League title push take a big hit.

Last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Hull ended their fading title hopes and Aldo is now urging Klopp to change his tactics in a bid to half the Liverpool slide.

"They need to get back to basics and that means stopping silly goals flying in from all angles," Aldo tells us.

"Liverpool need stop giving away stupid free-kicks around the box because they are not good at defending against them and it is costing them time and again.

"They keep getting hit by sucker punches against teams who are happy to sit back and sock up pressure before hitting Liverpool on the break.

"It is all too predictable, with the same tactics used by Swansea, Wolves and Hull successfully in the last few weeks.

"Klopp needs to stop the rot now. I like to be positive about Liverpool, but it has been hard to find too many positive things to say in the last few weeks, when everything went so horribly wrong.

"They will probably do better against Tottenham on Saturday because our record against the better teams is decent, but Klopp needs to add some strings to his team if Liverpool are going to challenge for the top honours."

While 2017 has been pretty grim for Liverpool so far, it has been a bumper few weeks of success for Aldo and his sundayworld.com bets after a winning run that has seen him collect more than €1000 for Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital in the last few weeks.

"We have been on a roll with the bets and hopefully we can keep it going this week," he adds.

"I fancy Liverpool to get something something out of the Spurs game, but it is hard to back them to win given their record form. So I'm going for a 1-1 draw, just as they got against Chelsea last month."

Here is Aldo's latest best, in association with our friends at Paddy Power:
