Journalist goes in hard on abysmal half by Liverpool: ‘Worst 45 minutes under Jurgen Klopp’

Liverpool simply were not at the races on Monday night as Southampton took a two-minute lead over the Premier League champions on the south coast.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was to blame for allowing Danny Ings to have sight of goal, and the former Reds striker made no mistake with a looping effort over Alisson into the top-right corner of the net.

It was an embarrassing opening few minutes, if we’re being honest – watching Liverpool playing like dummies on the training ground while the Saints played their game.

Guardian Sport editor Sachin Nakrani wasn’t happy with what he saw from the first half, saying it was perhaps the ‘worst 45 minutes under Jurgen Klopp‘ for the Reds.

The renowned journalist is right to point out the defensive injuries Liverpool are currently enduring in a later tweet, but is spot-on when he says the Reds’ attacking power is shot.

It’s frustrating to see how well the reigning champions played against Southampton and then struggle to score for over 220 minutes of football against West Brom, Newcastle and Southampton.
