Liverpool legend Steve McManaman shook his head and complained. The former club underperformed in Saturday’s 0-1 defeat at Bournemouth. Which is a different form of play from the game last week which shoots the enemy Manchester United with a record of 7-0
After winning the red game in a landslide 7-0, many believed that Jurgen Klopp’s team would be able to continue their fervor in attacking bottom-line teams like Bournemouth. That they instead missed a surprise defeat from Philip Billing’s goal in the first half. When at the end Mohamed Salah missed a penalty with a shot far out of the box.
Former England footballer Comment after the game “I think they were very bad today. It’s the opposite fate for both teams, everything that Liverpool did well last week. When they won at Anfield The complete opposite today.”
“They were lethargic, sluggish, a lot of sideways moves. But he was not in a hurry to advance. As for the defensive line that has five clean sheets, it looks as if they couldn’t play today.
“Defenders try to catch offside in unnecessary situations. Try to play like that throughout the game. Maybe they are the fastest defensive line in the league. But today it doesn’t look like they can win.
“At halftime I said it was like the game against Nottingham Forest and in the end it ended the same way – Forest were bottom of the league. But they showed more fighting. Liverpool created few chances. I can’t see that I have the right to win. And today is the same.
“It doesn’t matter how many changes you make, Diogo Jota only made one save for the goalkeeper and that’s it, Liverpool had five top strikers today but they didn’t do anything.
Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday. With a heavy disadvantage after losing the first game 2-5, then taking a full 2-week break and returning to the field again after the national team break
