Poor decisions had a big say in the contest, though there’s no question who the superior side was as Jurgen Klopp’s men invited an embarrassing array of questions and probing from the hosts.

Add on top a potentially serious injury for our Colombian sensation – whom ex-Liverpool star Michael Owen previously labelled ‘incredible’ on BT Sport (via Rousing the Kop) – and things are quickly going from bad to worse for a side that almost finished the prior campaign with four major trophies.
It’s possible, of course, that it’s merely an extreme precautionary measure taken by our medical department to avoid any further harm, though it’s hardly a positive sign for one of our best players this term.
Fingers crossed we won’t be without the electric No.23 for long in a particularly challenging month of football.
