Liverpool won another contest after four Premier League defeats in a row. The plagued team of Jürgen Klopp won with business figures from Sheffield United: 0-2.
Liverpool has fallen unusually far away in recent weeks with defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City, Leicester City and Everton. So much that even the functioning of Klopp was called into question. But the German has now got some air again.
Liverpool took up against Sheffield without a goalkeeper Alison Becker. His father died this week and that‘s why the Brazilian got off from the club. Reserve goalkeeper Adrián defended the target. At first it did not seem that Liverpool had learned anything from the past few weeks. The reigning champion had hardly anything to say and that made Sheffield easy to stay on his feet.
But after rest, Liverpool pulled the trigger. This was done through talent Curtis Jones, who got the ball at his feet and pulled it out: 0-1. By Kean Bryan’s own goal, the match was decided, because Sheffield was not dangerous.
Liverpool still needs to do a lot of work to give the season a little shine. The backlog of Manchester City is nineteen points. Liverpool is sixth.
