Liverpool Crisis Goals! 80 Shot But Only Three Breaks
Liverpool have to swallow the bitter pill out of the Premier League Cup. Against the hosts of Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Tuesday (19/09/2017) or Wednesday early morning WIB, the Reds gave up 0-2 as goalkeeper Danny Ward burglarized Shinji Okazaki in the 65th minute and Islam Slimani (78 ‘).
The defeat is very surprising because Liverpool controlled the game. Juergen Klopp’s men grabbed 70 percent of the ball and fired 21 shots with three leads on target without a goal.
This situation is inversely proportional to Leicester. The Foxes, nicknamed the Premier League champions 2015-2016, only made eight shots but five leads into goal and produced two goals.
This fact provides confirmation Liverpool are experiencing a crisis to break the opponent’s goal, especially in the last three games. In the number of matches, Liverpool do 80 times a kick in which only 19 are on target and only produce three goals!
In the Champions League game against Sevilla which ended 2-2, Liverpool made 24 attempts to break the opponent’s goal with a total of seven shots that led to the goal.
Last weekend while being held 1-1 draw Burnley, the Reds appear dominant with the number of shots reached 35 times throughout the game! But of that number only nine are right on target and just produce a goal by Mohamed Salah sontekan who had turned the direction because of the player Burnley.
With the attack line filled with famous names like Sadio Mane, Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool did not seem difficult to make a chance. It’s just that the poor final settlement makes them still hit by a goal drought.
Klopp seems to have to quickly fix the final completion of his team if you do not want to waste a lot of opportunities and then reap the defeat as in the game against Leicester.
On the other hand, Liverpool’s defense is very apprehensive because they’ve conceded nine goals from five Premier League matches that passed. This number of conceding more than the team caretaker, Crystal Palace, who conceded eight times.
