Even the games which they have won, against the likes of Ajax and Newcastle United, they have relied upon late goals to snatch victory.
It is not the confident and assured side we are used to seeing, and it is clear that the absence of Sadio Mane has disrupted their free-flowing attack more than Jurgen Klopp expected. He scored 120 times and assisted 49 times for a side that won nearly everything during his time at the club.
That is why he could perhaps turn to a youngster to add some freshness to his front line, with Kaide Gordon a natural option to succeed the Senegalese speedster.
He has already proven that he can handle the step up in age division, and there is no doubt that it won’t be long until he makes that last step up to break into the first team.
“Kaide is a special talent, and it’s great to see that he’s already doing well and making an impression”.
With the German already seemingly a big fan of the youngster, it should be no surprise to see him break through in the coming years. His arrival comes at a good time, with Liverpool having scored 15 goals this Premier League season in six games.
However, nine of those came against a hopeless AFC Bournemouth side, so in reality, it papers over the cracks that are their misfiring front line.
Perhaps Gordon can come in and add a bit more hunger and desire, revitalising those around him and kickstarting his side’s campaign properly now, helping those around Anfield forget about the now long-departed Mane.
