I genuinely couldn't give a toss if we were to win the next 27 league games in scrappy 1-0 wins.Excellent record, true. Points away from City and Arsenal, in a tough schedule is fantastic. Would have took that in a heartbeat if offered before the season's start.
Issue is, we look very disjointed, and it isn't a one off game. It doesn't come easier than Cardiff, and we had to deal with being by a goal. We used to annihilate Cardiff-esque teams with minimal performance, yet now we aren't ticking. The midfield is on a different page than our front three, and no proper delivery to let them work their magic. Mane dropping to wing back position to receive the ball, and Salah regularly fighting against a hulking CB to get at the end of a repeated long ball which is reminiscent of Hughes' Stoke City.
I very happy we are grinding results with sturdy defense, but we also need our attack to step up. Not asking to be like last season, but at least we need to take our chances and play with the fluidity we know we can offer since Klopp came in.
Some people would find reason to whine about it though.
