Liverpool are not taking their heads out of the water. The Reds, beaten 2-0 in the derby against Everton, followed a fourth straight Premier League defeat on Saturday.
At Anfield, Liverpool were taken cold. After only three minutes Richarlison could give the victory to the Toffees. And the players of Jürgen Klopp, who lost his captain Jordan Henderson to injury, were unable to reverse the score. Xherdan Shaqiri came on for the last half hour, without being able to be decisive. Worse, he assisted from the field to Sigurdsson’s 2-0 from the penalty spot (83rd).
Sixth in a Premier League difficult to read because of the games to be made up, Liverpool sees its place in the Champions League being compromised.
