Coutinho Rescues A Point For Wasteful Liverpool

UCL Report: Spartak Moscow v Liverpool 26 September 2017

UEFA Champions League

Result: Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool

Date: 26 September 2017

Venue: Otkrytie Arena

Liverpool's search for a first win of the UEFA Champions League campaign continues, after they drew 1-1 with Spartak Moscow at the Otkrytie Arena.

The first real chance of the match fell to Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 11th minute who controlled a one-two flick with Mohammed Salah on his chest and fired a volley that missed wide.

Fernando opened the scoring for the hosts from a direct free-kick that swerved over the wall and into the back of the net from 25-yards out, 1-0.

Philippe Coutinho brought Jurgen Klopp's charges level in the 31st minute with a chip over goalkeeper Artem Rebrov following a quick one-two with Sadio Mane inside the box, 1-1.

Spartak were almost playing with six at the back when the visitors had the ball, with the Reds threatening to score the second goal but the first half ended one-apiece.

The Reds were dominating possession in the first ten minutes of the second half with Coutinho coming close to scoring on numerous occasions.

Massimo Carrera was forced to make a substitution in the 70th minute in the goals as goalkeeper Artem Rebrov was unable to continue due to injury and was replaced by Aleksandr Selikhov.

After 80 minutes Klopp's troops increased the tempo in their play attacking mainly through the wings.

Carrera's charges were holding on in the closing minutes of the encounter and did so until the final whistle to secure the share of spoils.

@mjosterKlopp makes odd decisions, that's why he has to go. Mignolet might notfreekick be as great as De Gea but he's the best Liverpool keeper currently, I'm positive that he would have punched that weak away. Klopp says there's no better defenders than Lovren, Matip and Klavan in the entire world. Like really now. I have given up hope, this squad is not going to win anything.

@Zugo48 True under Benitez Liverpool had one of best defensive records in the league, with a quality no 9 he can fix the defence and Liverpool will have a balanced squad, Benitez is a tactical genius but his man management skills are his weakness

@Ant_55 true he's not effective upfront, and tends to be selfish too. I don't ever see him scoring a brace, infact I don't see any of the Liverpool attackers scoring a hat trick, too wasteful for the so called best attacking team in the league, ncincinci

For every goal that Salah scores, he misses 4 he should bury in his sleep..... And more importantly, for the huge amount of money they paid for him. That through ball by Mane, albeit being started by Coutinho is a measure of the man's brilliance..... For me, Africa's brightest prospect.

I might cause a bit of controversy with this, but Liverpool really have a few bottlers up front, don't they? Salah has missed a lot of chances this season, that other inside forwards would finish off. Sturridge missed from 6 yards out, and Firmino hasn't looked great since missing that pen against Sevilla. On another note, what does Klopp see in Karius? He's 24, not exactly young anymore. He might have been good for Mainz, but I don't remember him having a good game for Liverpool.

The problem is that they've dominated Burnley, Sevilla and now Spartak and ended up with three draws. The defensive flaws are obvious, but the poor finishning is starting cost points. No point saying, on another day, they could have won comfortably. The game was played last night. And they didn't win at all, let alone comfortably.

But I don't hear a word criticising Klopp as it's always the case to the Coach who comes from Bundesliga too whom I won't mention his name.Liverpool hasn't improved under Mr Klopp.The liverpool of Brandan Rogers was much much better that this on and I think and believe Rafa Barnitez can take Liverpool to Greater heights with the same players that Mr Klopp has at Liverpool right now.

I don't understand for the life of me why in the world Liverpool's deluded fans believe their team is superior to Spartak...
