Liverpool have played six draws this season so far
Liverpool so far has suffered only one defeat this season, but they have end up playing 60% of their matches draw. Four draws in Premier League out of eight have helped them accumulate only 13 points. They have played both of their Uefa Champions’ League group games draws as well accumulating only 2 points. It’s time for Jurgen Klopp’s men to step up and deliver.
Draws are not going to help them in winning silverware. Every draw takes away two points from them and sooner they’ll realize it will better. They have the experience of playing in Europe; they are five time European Cup winners (Uefa Champions League winner) and they need to deliver as per their reputation.
Theyplayed a 2-2 draw at home against Sevilla, 1-1 away draw at Spartak Moscow and now they’ll be travelling to Moribor. Slovenian champion can’t be taken lightly, but still Liverpool is the most experienced European team in the group. They deserved to be the group winner and for that they’ll have to collect all the six points from their away games against Moribor and Sevilla. Sevilla already leads the group with their victory over Moribor and draw against Liverpool at Anfield.It’s time for Jurgen Klopp’s men to rise on the occasion and deliver.
Liverpool’s fans can’t take another draw as good result. Reds have played three back to back draws. They played 1-1 draw against Spartak Moscow, 1-1 against Newcastle United, and then 0-0 stalwart against Manchester United. They are playing better football than their rivals, but still fans expect their team to win games.
It will be same Liverpool team who played against Manchester United. They will have to cope without injured Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana, both are expected to make a comeback in November. Joe Gomez will be back from his suspension in right-back position. Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Coutinho is expected to form the front three. Jordon Henderson, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum will take care of midfield, and Dejan Lovren & Joel Matip will join in defensive pairing.
They are short of options on bench in attacking play. They almost play with the same playing XI in every game and their gegenpressing style of football takes too much of energy away. Klopp’s men have failed to deliver results in initial month of the season, they need to pick maximum points from the left matches of the first half of the season.
Klopp’s side may get exhausted in February or March and in back up they have little quality left on bench. It’s better they start early picking up points early, otherwise Champions League doesn’t give you much room to catch up later.
