Bobby Firmino scuffed a clear goalscoring opportunity in the second-half, with the tie goalless at the time of writing.
The No.9 found some space in the box after a lovely one-two with Andy Robertson, though his shot fizzled harmlessly out of play.
The Brazilian has come under criticism of late for showing a lack of lethality in front of goal – in fairness, Bobby has hardly shown us anything this game to prove otherwise.
It’s beginning to become a concern, which could indicate that the player is in need of some time apart from the first-XI, at least temporarily.
Firmino is, of course, still a highly important cog in this Jurgen Klopp side, and we’d be foolish to dismiss him for the long-run – as such, we don’t ascribe to the belief held by the Twitter user below.

This is our number 9 ladies and gentlemen. Time to accept that we need a proper striker to replace Firmino. pic.twitter.com/dAQgXQ5OJS
