3. Defensive errors might cost Liverpool dear
Defensive errors and Liverpool are becoming synonymous at the moment. Almost every game, they seem to be gifting goals to their opponents by making some error or the other. In fact, both of Fulham’s goals were courtesy of errors from the central defensive pair for Liverpool. Kolo Toure somehow managed to slice the ball in the back of his own net when clearing seemed to be easier option, and then Martin Skrtel knocked the ball down for Kieron Richardson to score from 2 yards out, in what would have been a perfect assist at the other end of the field.
This mistake was the second high profile error the Ivorian has committed in as many weeks, after he passed the ball straight to the feet of Victor Anichebe to score the equalizer in the 1-1 draw at West Brom. Today’s errors take Liverpool’s tally to 30, the highest of any team in the league, and 7 of them have led to goals. Going forward, if they do not sort this out, it might cost them dearly in the big games.
