Marko Grujic is adamant Liverpool will right the wrongs of Tuesday evening’s defeat against Leicester City, the same opponent who just dumped us out of the League Cup.
The fixture list has drawn us away to the Foxes this Saturday, just four days after the cup game that Leicester somehow won 2-0 at the King Power.
Liverpool dominated the first-half, but with Coutinho subbed at the interval, we lost our direction and conceded two sloppy goals.
Grujic played well early on, but like his team-mates, his level dropped as the game progressed and sizzled out into nothingness.
He won’t play at the weekend, with Emre Can and perhaps James Milner likely to come in, but has bullishly promised a better result anyway.
“We have to not let our heads drop and focus on Saturday – the same pitch, the same opponent – we have to concentrate on the Premier League and the other cups,” he told the club’s website, cited in the Mail.
“If we play again the same way as in the first half and be more concentrated and score some chances, we will win on Saturday.
“It’s a good thing for us. We create a lot but we need to concentrate and score.”
What’s most disappointing for Grujic about the defeat is that it realistically means he won’t play again until January barring an injury crisis.
The Carabao Cup was his chance to shine, alongside Danny Ward and Jon Flanagan, but the defeat seriously restricts there chances of first-team minutes until the FA Cup begins.
