There were many Liverpool supporters who felt aggrieved to see Arsenal awarded a penalty, following the perceived foul by Thiago Alcantara on Gabriel Jesus.
However; when the sheer number of opportunities to actually clear the ball (before the pen was given) are reviewed, it makes for some uncomfortable viewing for the Reds.
Ibou Konate, Joe Gomez, Fabinho and our No.6 all could have put their foot through the ball and it’s so strange to see the stark difference in defensive performances from last year.
We can only hope Jurgen Klopp’s team are back to their best soon, so that we can begin keeping clean sheets and winning games again.
