Manchester United 3: 2 Liverpool. The Merseysiders have only won 1 of their last 7 matches. Reigning English champions Liverpool are in crisis.
The “Reds” are having the worst moment during Jürgen Klopp’s period, and it is easily noticeable. Liverpool lost 2: 3 to Manchester United and were knocked out of the FA Cup in the 1/16 finals.
Of course, the Merseyside plans did not include a failure in the Cup so early, but for today Manchester are in much better shape. After the match, Jürgen Klopp commented that his team wanted to win.
“If you want to win at Old Trafford, you have to show the highest level, and we failed. We can learn a lot from such games. The match went well for Salah, which is good for his confidence. It was a difficult game, we wanted to win, but it was not enough. “You win, and then you lose, you notice the shortcomings, but the boys really wanted to win. We had problems with the counterattacks, but overall it was a good match. Obviously, this is not what we wanted, but there were positive signs in my team,” Klopp said.
Liverpool have won the last of their last seven matches, including the FA Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa Birmingham (4-1) when their opponents played the academy team due to the Coronavirus pandemic. So we cannot even attribute this victory to Jürgen Klopp’s team’s assets. It is noteworthy that during the German coaching period, the “Reds” did not advance to the FA Cup’s quarterfinals.
It’s hard to say what caused Liverpool to make such a sudden drop, but the team is particularly hard on offence. If we do not count the cup matches, he has not scored a goal in the Premier League’s last 4 rounds. Most importantly, Liverpool have significantly lost positions in the Premier League, they have a difficult calendar ahead, and the eighth final of the Champions League is coming to an end.
