For the first time in 80 years, Liverpool have conceded more than ten goals in our first four away league games.
If this wasn’t bad enough, only two Premier League teams have conceded more: the hilariously poor Crystal Palace who’ve almost relegated themselves already, and West Ham – who are set for a season in the bottom half themselves.
In contrast, our supposed rivals at the top of the table, Manchester United and Manchester City, have let in just two apiece.
In all competitions, we’ve let in 20 goals. That’s not bad luck. That’s appalling for a club with trophy aspirations.
The central defenders are regularly savaged by pundits and fans alike, but our options at fullback are far inferior to other teams chasing top four spots, too.
Alberto Moreno is improved, but still irresponsible, while Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold are youngsters – with Nathaniel Clyne out until after Christmas.
Simon Mignolet is decent, but he’s nowhere near as strong as David de Gea, Thibaut Courtois, Ederson or Hugo Lloris.
But for whatever reason, this is our situation – and will continue to be so until next summer.
Let’s hope the attack can find its shooting boots again.
