EPL: Liverpool dan Man United dibelasah lawan

Share

Liverpool kalah 7-2 dengan Aston Villa manakala Manchester United telah dikalahkan 6-1 oleh Tottenham Hotspur.

Ini merupakan kekalahan yang amat memalukan Liverpool yang ternyata adalah pasukan yang terkuat dalam EPL.


Liverpool’s defeat came on the same day that Manchester United were beaten 6-1 at home by Tottenham and just one week after Manchester City’s 5-2 defeat to Leicester at the Etihad Stadium.

It suggests something strange is happening in the Premier League. Are teams suffering from fatigue given the lack of a proper pre-season and is this causing more unpredictable results?

“It’s like they can’t run in this game,” said Carragher on co-commentary. “We know that’s not the case, so you scratch your head for reasons why.

“There’s so much wrong with the whole team performance, really. It’s really slow, this team that’s so energetic against Chelsea and Arsenal, completely ran them off the pitch.”

Van Dijk could offer no explanation.

“It just felt like one of those performances where we just weren’t 100 per cent at it from the start until the finish,” he told Sky Sports.

“The goals we conceded, we should have done better, but also the chances we had – because we had many – we should have done better. Our preparation was good. We were ready for it before the game, but unfortunately in the game it didn’t happen how we wanted it to.”
