We all know it wasn't going to be perfect after the recent events of the world, but I expected a lot better than that. Obviously there will be an element of rustiness but in truth, it was no better or worse than our final few performances before the break. Laboured performances by the majority, no real threat to their goal and poor substitutions by Klopp. Ox for Minamino was the wrong choice seeing as Ox is no real threat when he plays out wide and it showed again, Keita going off was the wrong choice and Lovren was a disaster like usual. When Matip went off we really should have put Fab to CB and put Salah on, as soon as Lovren came on we gave them an invitation to attack and we were lucky to come away with a draw by the end of it. The fact he fell over about twice trying to tackle Richarlison and stood like a statue when a cross came in really set the tone for him.
Origi again highlighted why we can't really afford to go another season with him as the main player to call upon from the bench.
Overall, a point closer but a very disappointing night.
Well in to Alisson and Gomez though, they kept us in it at the end.
