Liverpool knelt down to Wolverhampton 0-3 in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 5th. With this defeat, Liverpool (29 points) failed to jump up the rankings and remained in 10th place.
Liverpool are on the brink this season. In the league, they are not getting out of the middle and have fallen into a draw in the last 3 games (1 draw, 2 losses). The English FA Cup and the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) were also eliminated in the round of 32 and round of 16, respectively. Even if key players such as Virgil Van Dyke, Luis Diaz, and Diogo Jota left due to injuries, it was a slump that was difficult to accept.
The opponent for this round is Wolverhampton, who have fallen to the relegation zone. Manager Jurgen Klopp built a three-top attacking lineup with Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah. As long as it was a relatively easy Wolverhampton expedition, this time I had to bring 3 points somehow.
But the results were the worst. In the 5th minute of the first half, Joel Matip allowed the lead with an own goal. In the 12th minute of the first half, Craig Dawson gave up an additional goal. In the 26th minute of the second half, Ruben Neves even scored a key goal. Klopp put in Jordan Henderson, Harvey Elliot, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Konstantinos Tsimikas in turn to confront him, but it was not enough.
In the end, Liverpool was completely defeated by Wolverhampton and could not sound the victory this time. “It was a terrible start. There is no excuse. The first 15 minutes of the game are inexplicable and I am so disappointed and angry,” Klopp said after the game. 먹튀검증
Liverpool fans exploded too. He came to Liverpool social media and urged change by leaving comments such as “There is nothing from goals, passion, initiative, and mindset”, “Sala is afraid, Núñez is in a hurry, Joe Gomes is not enough”, and “I miss Sadio Mane”.
I am very sorry, but there is no time to rest. Liverpool face Everton in the next round of the Merseyside Derby. As Everton succeeded in ‘killing the giant’ against Arsenal after the appointment of manager Sean Dyche, Liverpool also needs to be fully prepared.
