It’s finally over! Liverpool’s 68 unbeaten home run has finally come to end thanks to a beautifully taken spot kick from Harvey Banes.
Without doubt, Liverpool aren’t the same team they use to be. They’re easily man marked, defended against and nullified of every attacking moves they conjure.
Every team now knows the ball comes from the wings through Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and both players try to drive in to shoot or pass. To stop them, the defence must sit very deep and clear any incoming shoots or cross.
They also know Trent Alexander or Andrew Robertson will either cross the ball or try to cut back. If the defense miss the cut back, they must all try to clear the ball before a shoot is taken.
Liverpool’s last five opposition have done it and picked up points. Burnley have now gone a step further to pick up all three pints.
The sad part of Liverpool’s overall play is that Jurgen Klopp don’t have a plan b to change the outcome of the game. His second string of players are too average and wasteful in front of goal.
Divock Origi’s golden misses clearly illustrates the major problem at Liverpool.
They don’t have a top 9 who can score goals nor do they have midfielder’s who can score goals. Sadly, the team don’t even good defenders who can keep out goals.
Liverpool will not win the Premier league title this season nor will finish in the top 4 playing like this.
