It was a first 45 minutes to forget for Liverpool players and supporters alike but could have been so different had Darwin Nunez managed to find the back of the net, after a brilliant pass from Mo Salah.
The Egyptian King plucked the ball out of the air with ease and then found his Uruguayan teammate with a sublime through ball, who did nearly everything right.
Unfortunately for our No.27 and everyone of a Red persuasion though, Ben Mee got himself back on the line and managed to clear the ball to safety.
You’d forgive the 23-year-old for thinking what more he needs to do in order to score at the moment but let’s hope that they start coming soon.
