Well that was just farcical. Between poor play, a trio of deflected goals, and some dubious refereeing, this game got out of hand quickly. There were not many bright spots in the Liverpool side today, but there were some glimmers of hope. Mohamed Salah scored a brace with two very well taken goals. He was unlucky not to have earned a penalty after getting blocked off them ball early in the first half. Andrew Robertson was a constant threat down the left flank, and he combined well with Diogo Jota. Speaking of Jota, the Portuguese player did an admirable job stepping in for Sadio Mane. Jota was heavily involved with the Liverpool attack, especially in the first half.
