Has Liverpool lost it?

The champions finished yesterday (Sunday) with a disappointing 0-0 home draw against Manchester United, and missed an opportunity to beat their big rival and return to first place in the table.

Liverpool started better, held the ball better, got more chances in most of the game, but in the end failed to win a third game in a row - something that has not happened to them in 15 years.

Graham Sones, former team captain and now a commentator, has criticized the trio of strikers: Firmino, Salah and Mana, who are far from restoring their excellent fitness from previous seasons.

"As a Liverpool fan looking at the team and looking for what's not working, it's this trio," Suns said. "De Hae didn't have to save a lot of balls. Liverpool gave up and tried, but nothing special happened. No one threatened the defense. Salah also had a very quiet game."

Roy Keane, a former Manchester United player and current commentator, also said that "it is impossible to say that Liverpool played badly, but they lost their spark".



Liverpool have not scored in 348 consecutive minutes, and following the victories of Manchester City and Leicester they have dropped to fourth place.

Jürgen Klopp made it clear at the end that Liverpool currently need to concentrate first on staying in the top-4.

"I always knew that," he said, "even in a season where we scored 97 points and finished in second place, I only started thinking about a championship after securing a place in the Champions League. I know my job. Know what needs to be done. I have to qualify for the Champions League and know how much It's hard. No doubt, this year will be a tough race for the top 4, no doubt. Football fans are not the most patient people in the universe, it's clear, they want to win every game. I'm no different from them. But I'm in business long enough to know there's hard times "More, and it's not the hardest time I've had in my life, not even close to it. You have to be patient. It's not like 'if we don't take a championship, it's not fun anymore.' It's not like that. We fight for everything."

How did you miss it?

But it was not just Liverpool that was criticized.

Roy Keane claimed that Paul Pogba's miss towards the end, when he kicked close to Alison's hands, was a symbolic miss.

"He missed the opportunity to be the star," Cain said, "it was the moment for him to prove, he should not have missed it. This is an opportunity you dream of."



Former commentator and player Mika Richards criticized the playing style of Manchester United, who for most of the first half defended rather desperately and were pushed back.

In the first half Liverpool held the ball 67 percent of the time and kicked to goal 9 times against United once.

"I'm very disappointed with United," Richards said. "We know they's at Anfield, but they're too far behind.
