Liverpool players who gave up the game when it was ‘0-3’, “Why don’t you press?”

When it became ‘0-3’, the Liverpool players gave up the game. When Wolverhampton passed 50 to 60 passes in the second half of extra time, the Liverpool players did not actively press.

Liverpool lost 0-3 to Wolverhampton in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 5th. As a result, Wolverhampton is 15th with 20 points (5 wins, 5 draws, 11 losses), and Liverpool is in 10th place with 29 points (8 wins, 5 draws, 7 losses).

It was the worst game ever. They conceded two goals in the first half alone. In the 6th minute of the first half, the ball Hwang Hee-chan tried to connect from the right half space area was hit by Joseph Matip’s foot and led to an own goal. An additional goal was immediately scored. In the 12th minute of the first half, in a free kick situation, Craig Dawson calmly finished it.

There was no turnaround in the second half. In the 27th minute of the second half, after Adama Traore broke through, Hubin Neves cut the low and fast cross into the net, widening the gap to 3 points. As it is, Wolverhampton, who finished the game stably until the final whistle was blown, won 3 points.

Klopp, who suffered a shock defeat, was in a state of collapse. In an interview after the match, Klopp said: “It was a terrible start. Two goals happened that couldn’t have happened, and we were drawn 0-2 because of our fault. We had to defend better. We were passive during that period. I can’t explain it. There is no excuse.”

The problem wasn’t the score. The bigger problem was the spirit and team energy of the Liverpool players. In the meantime, Klopp has made good results with strong pressure and quick attack development, but this season Liverpool has become a completely different team. 온라인바카라

Both coach Klopp and the players appear to have lost their mental strength. Coach Klopp sat down and did nothing while conceding the third goal, and in the second half of extra time, the Wolverhampton players spent about 2-3 minutes turning the ball around, but the Liverpool players were not actively pressing and the game was played. It looked like giving up.

Regarding this, Arsenal legend Paul Merson, who is active as a commentator for Sky Sports in the UK, said, “Now the opponent is not afraid of Liverpool. It was creepy at the end. It showed that the game was over. “The Liverpool players didn’t come close when I was defending the ball with two passes. I was shocked. 50 or 60 passes? That can’t happen to Liverpool.”
