‘Stop Being So Cautious’ ‘Bring Back Gegenpress’ – Liverpool Fans Left Frustrated After Merseyside Derby Stalemate

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hit out at claims that the Reds did not take enough risks against Everton.

The 0-0 stalemate at Goodison Park was their seventh draw of the season in the league, and when asked whether he should have made more attacking substitutions yesterday, Klopp responded by saying:

“We don’t play PlayStation. Do you think we didn’t take enough risks today? It’s a really disappointing question because that means it’s so easy – I just say ‘come on boys, we take more risks, we go for it’. Can you imagine? Is there any draw we didn’t try to win? What is that?”

Fans are understandably frustrated with the result on Twitter. Many, couldn’t understand why Xherdan Shaqiri or Naby Keita weren’t put on during the second half.

Considering the Reds scored five goals against Watford only a few days earlier, you could hardly accuse Klopp and his side of being overly cautious.

Still, Liverpool have not been scoring away from home recently. They’ve won just once away from Anfield in 2019, and if they are to overhaul Manchester City at the top of the table, that will have to change soon.

Next up will be Burnley at home on Sunday. City are playing a day earlier once again against Watford so the pressure will be on the Reds to get the three points.
