Liverpool lost 2-0 at Anfield to West Bromwich Albion on Monday night as a result of which dropped down to 9th place in the league, further jeopardizing their chances of reaching top four.
Steve Clarke said prior to the match that Liverpool are playing the best football in the country at the moment. The Baggies who earned just two points from last eight games, prior to this match scored two late goals after Ben Foster’s heroic goal keeping (saved a penalty from Steven Gerrard) kept them in the match.
But, how embarrassing was that performance from Liverpool?
It was the same old story. They created loads of chances but failed to finish off their opponents. They enjoyed a lion share of possession for most of the match but failed to break down the defence when required.
In absence of Sturridge, they lacked imagination going forward while individual errors have proved too costly. Glenn Johnson had a night which he can’t reflect back upon with pride and central defender Daniel Agger was at fault for both the goals conceded.
Liverpool still remains the side that has failed to win against a top 10 team in the league. They hold the ambition of finishing in top four but results and performances like this won’t take them there.
