“Well, you win one and lose one and fans and rivals alike begin the banter.”
The 2016/2017 Premier League started off a bit well I must say for Liverpool with an intriguing and jaw-dropping win over the red rivals from London in a not so convincing scoreline of four goals to three. The players showed great spirits by coming hard at Arsenal after being a goal down and increasing the lead by quite a small margin until Arsene Wengers Gunners reduced the deficit to a single goal. Exceptional performances from the tricky Brazilians (Phillipe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino) and the newcomers (Sadio Mané, Georginio Wijnaldum and Ragner Klavan) ensured the Red Army bagged the first three points of the season at the Emirates.
However, the taste in the mouths of the fans changed from sweet to bitter after losing by two unanswered goals to Premier League new boys Burnley in a game which was dominated by Liverpool. A second consecutive away game this season against Spurs due to ongoing work at Anfield is surely a big consideration on the lips of many fans and pundits alike.
However, other schools of thought suggest the passionate Klopp has no “PLAN B” and that resulted in Liverpool’s fruitless dominance against Burnley. Klopp himself did mention that the loss in his view was mostly as a result of “poor decision-making by the players” but has assured all that he will not cave into any panic buys because the players would come around.
Generally a team’s recent form is judged by it’s five most recent matches. There have been only 2 matches played; thirty six more of them to go. A fifty percent win rate in two matches is not so bad. The Red Army will certainly bounce back much stronger. The Burton Albion game was just a mere formality.
Long Live Liverpool!!!!
