Liverpool’s worrisome run continued on Monday and was handed a second defeat in the Premier League season. Fall 1-0 so Southampton..Ralph Hasenhuttle’s side went in less than two minutes thanks to the smart Danny Ings From that point on, the visitor was unable to disassemble the host, even though he relentlessly knocked on the Fraser Forster door.
Play that overlaps quickly Liverpool Pride was perfectly effective against long spells throughout the game, even if the saint saw it come multiple times. From the moment they set foot on the pitch in the second half, higher pace and intensity are apparent, and such a determination will be a good precursor to them as they head into the next few months of the campaign.
When you give enough time to confront the happy side, moving forward in a counterattack style does not work. No midfield structure was found. The last ball was consistently lacking and their regular attack trio couldn’t remind them of their famous chemistry.
The manager’s evaluation is a perfect score of 10
Five– Jurgen Klopp has been forced into a situation where he can easily blame the injury for the problems Liverpool is experiencing on the pitch, but in reality he has to take some responsibility. It is predictable that his side relies on moving the ball on the side, and some may suggest that he is not urgent or innovative enough in his turn.
Player Rating (1-10; 10 = Highest, player introduced after 70 minutes has no rating)
GK Allison, 6- After appearing to be defeated by Ings in the first few minutes, Alison was solid enough with the limited attacks that came in the rest of the game.
DF Trent Alexander Arnold,Four– In addition to the lack of concentration to pass the lead to Southampton, Alexander Arnold repeatedly relinquished ownership and completed only 61% of 72 pass attempts.
DF Jordan Henderson,Five– The captain was able to handle the simple things, including slow clearance from the line, but he was clearly not happy with his lack of freedom of delivery.
DF Andy Robertson, 7- Outside the ridiculous yellow card, Robertson was consistent with his determination to put the ball in the box.
MF Alex Oxlade Chamberlain,Five– He positioned himself well, but the returning Englishman couldn’t do anything creative before being replaced early in the second half.
MF Chiago, 6- Chiago’s midfield control is seamless when he gets on a good rhythm, but don’t forget that he gave the Ings winner a foul. I was probably lucky that I couldn’t leave after many difficult challenges.
FW Mohamed Salah,Five– From misjudging the ball to fly to being too undecided at his finish, this day was a day of forgetting Liverpool’s amulets.
FW Roberto Firmino,Five– His decision was suspicious, as the pace seemed to be significantly off.
FW Sadio Mané, 6- The mane’s excellent instinct was clearly hesitant to pull the trigger, and it wasn’t a strong night before the goal.
MF Xherdan Shaqiri, 6- Even if he couldn’t fully function as the catalyst behind the comeback, he showed great urgency both on and off the ball.
MF James Milner, N / R- I tried to introduce a drive within the team, but it wasn’t very effective in moving the ball.
