Liverpool Fall One Point Behind City After An Uneventful Merseyside Derby

Liverpool effectively left their League title hopes hanging by a tiny piece of thread after failing to get all three points in a rather uneventful – as the scoreline suggests – Merseyside derby.

This draw has left Klopp’s men wearing forlorn faces as they have lost their pole position to Manchester City in only a few weeks.

They were champions elect only few days before this and have let their first real chance at a local silverware since the late 90’s slip so cheaply past them.

What’s rather disgusting to fans is the excuse Klopp could come up with. “Very difficult game for different reasons. I know people don’t like it when I say it, but the wind came from all different directions, the ball was in the air a lot”

From the master tactician’s perspective that could be a probable reason why Salah lost two good chances on either side of the break. He could have easily gotten himself a goal and a win for Liverpool but he failed to do so.

Liverpool were left rattled by an Everton side who were searching for a safe haven just two points behind West Ham in 10th place.

Klopp feels clueless and has a lot of questions unanswered at the moment. After a 5-0 mauling of Watford, one would think that they were back on track and onto winning ways but the opposite was the case. Liverpool were so flawed attack-wise that they had no chances at goal anymore after Trent Alexander-Arnold trial in the 54th minute

Salah fired the first chance at goal straight onto the hands of Jordan Pickford and had to wait for another fifteen minutes for another to come by.

Mane released Salah through on goal but he failed to get Pickford for the second time before Everton got their first attack seven minutes before the break through Theo Walcott but it went just wide off the upright.

Both sides pushed for a late winner but none could make away with that, not even the introduction of Roberto Firmino.

Everton 0-0 Liverpool it ended.
