Liverpool’s attacking prowess this season is a far cry from their ruthlessness in front of goal last season.
That is partly down to Daniel Sturridge being sidelined with a calf injury and mostly because Luis Suarez was allowed to leave after enjoying the best season of his career.
But while Brendan Rodgers replaced Suarez with a misbehaving and missfiring Mario Balotelli, he also allowed Iago Aspas to leave on loan for Sevilla.
What a mistake that turned out to be. Aspas banged in a hat-trick for Sevilla last night. Another transfer mistake from Rodgers?
