Liverpool Can’t Find the Net

What has happened to Liverpool’s striking attack? The club that won the Premier League last year was carried by their godly scoring habit. They were led by some of the best attackers involving Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino, who have not recently found the net.

Even with leading the Premier League in goals this season, it’s unbelievable that they have not scored in 438 minutes and more than four full matches.

“There’s no easy explanation. We always missed chances,” said Klopp. “You have to try to ignore the talk around, because that’s how it is – it’s football, everybody wants to see goals, if you don’t score goals everybody talks about it.”

They have yet to score since December 27, 2020, a game that drew a tie against West Brom 1-1. Will their lack of scoring be their downfall this year?

Liverpool was ranked 1st before their drought had started. Since then, they have lost twice and tied three times, leaving the club being ranked 4th.

The club has played West Brom, Newcastle, Southampton, and Burnley, the bottom half of the rankings. Only to have scored one goal in all these games combined.

The last time Liverpool went winless in five consecutive games was in 2016-2017 the team was a completely different team with injuries all over the place.

Liverpool will need to find a way to score in their next five games as they play some of the most important matches. These clubs are Tottenham, West Ham, Brighton, Manchester City, and Leicester City. These clubs round up the top 6 in the league.

If Liverpool can not find a way to get back into a rhythm, they will not qualify for Champions League next year. If Jurgen Klopp wants to add people to his team, he will need to find a way to win these games coming up to qualify.
