The thing I noticed from the first whistle is that despite being the first 11 that I expected to play, the midfield weren't set up how I thought. No one was really holding, hence Rice and Noble being caught too far up the pitch for the opening goal. We were almost too gung ho, like Pellegrini thought we were better than what we are.
I would've expected at least one midfield anchor, being Rice... but these comments on the OS confirmed...
" Before the game, manager Pellegrini had stated his desire to play his own game at Anfield, despite Liverpool’s own considerable attacking threat".
I don't think we're quite good enough for that yet.
Regardless of the heavy defeat, TRUST THE PROCESS
and roll on Bournemouth at home on Saturday.
