Liverpool’s unbeaten run that stretched back to April was ended this evening and John Aldridge took to Twitter to vent his frustration on a disappointing day.
The 63-year-old gave an honest assessment of the team’s performance on his Twitter account:
Bad day at the office 😩defensively poor!even going forward we weren’t the best BUT scored 2 goals and that should be enough to win a game!We are too open at the back this season,the balance between throwing players forward and getting back isn’t quite right!

It certainly was a ‘bad day at the office‘ and the ease in which David Moyes’ team got in behind Jurgen Klopp’s side, particularly after the second goal, was worrying.
As the ex-Tranmere manager said though, Liverpool did score two great goals and that goes on a trend of free-scoring away days this season.
To have the ability of scoring goals is not always a given and maybe too much reliance has been on the attackers bailing us out, the balance between scoring and not conceding does need amending though.
All-in-all a frustrating afternoon but it’s important to bear in mind a significant positive in terms of our proficiency in front of goal and then pay some attention to the defensive issues that have been apparent of late.
It’ll be a long international break before we welcome Arsenal on the 20th of November but we’ll bounce back!
