Our entire game is focused on the counter and stretching the opposition and we're very much the all out attack type of team, losing Mane and taking off Salah ended that tactic and we became disorganized. Unfamiliar system and shape plus no focus to play the ball out to all contributed, we also didn't hunt the ball at all and try to win it back, so no pressure by us. Give a team time and space to play and they'll hurt you. This was exaggerated by the fact we were facing a world class side that is technically gifted at passing and the moves that cut us apart were often inch perfect passes and superbly timed runs from an onside position. With us retreating into a defensive shell we afforded City time and space to essentially pull us apart and we aren't geared for that sort of tactic. I don't get why Klopp did what he did unless he conceded defeat and wanted to save key players for today and throw the towel in, but by pulling off any attacking outlet City overran what is already known to be a fragile defense. This has been said to death by others but we provide our defense with little to no cover and that same defense doesn't provide cover for the keeper. Our attack needs to contribute to the defense of set pieces and have an understanding of what to do. Tracking a runner would help a lot and allow the defense to mark the area. This has been an issue. Also having a Kante or Fernandiho who will go and break up plays, someone to offer a first line of defense is absent from our team. Hendo for me is an attack minded player, so asking him to assume this covering position doesn't work and he looks uncomfortable. Another aspect of this is our tendency of playing with the ball, instead of a good old fashion clearance we'll often do a stupid pass to the middle, seen Moreno and Lovren do that and it drives me nuts. This is school yard shit.
