A lack of quality and real belief

Another step backwards then.

The optimists might point to a point earned, one which could be the difference between so little and so much in another two games’ time.

But we don’t need to watch Arsenal against Manchester United to know what this second goalless league tussle of the season with Southampton represented.

This was opportunity missed, a chance to hammer another nail into key rivals’ coffins spurned. Instead they were given a kiss of life they could barely have hoped for.

Liverpool’s home record in 2017 now reveals a concerning symmetry – four wins, four draws, four defeats.
