Liverpool fans had only just got over their battering by Manchester City when they had to play both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the space of two weekends.
Against United they may have got a draw, but they certainly came under fire for failing to beat a side that were set up to defend and there for the taking – and against Tottenham Hotspur things couldn’t have got off to a worse start.
They managed to go two goals down early on and then when Mo Salah managed to get them back into the game, conceded another two goals.
Having Dejan Lovren winched off made a slight difference but the case remained – they were nowhere near good enough and they lost another three points that made the title race look beyond them so early into the season and a fight for top four their main priority.
The fans weren’t happy, and it seems that Jurgen Klopp has some serious questions to answer.
The best of football
Meanwhile, Liverpool fans can look forward to hosting Maribor at Anfield on the 1st of November.
