Liverpool are shocked again…I’m already losing 23 points more than last season
Liverpool suffered another shock defeat.
Liverpool lost to Brentford 1-3 in the 19th round of the English Premier League in the 2022-2023 season at G-Tech Community Stadium in Brentford, England on the 3rd (Korea Standard Time).
Liverpool has never fallen below the fourth place since it ranked fourth in the 2016-2017 season. In the 2019-2020 season, he won the championship, and last season, he was runner-up with one point short. But this season is weird. After playing 17 games, he is in sixth place with 28 points with eight wins, four draws, and five losses. Based on their previous wins, they have already lost 23 points in 17 games. Liverpool missed 22 points in 38 games last season.
Defender Iraima Konate scored an own goal in the 19th minute of the first half. Brian Mbemo’s corner kick hit Konate’s leg and was sucked into the net. Liverpool escaped the crisis of losing points offside twice in the first half alone, but gave up an additional goal in the 42nd minute of the first half. I couldn’t control Yuan’s head.
Liverpool chased Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s header in the fifth minute of the second half. However, he knelt down in the 39th minute of the second half when he donated an additional goal to Mbemo.
Liverpools manager Jürgen Klopp said, “The two players (Konate and Mbemo) ran at full speed (in the third situation of losing a point). As Mbemo pushed, Konate lost his balance and collapsed. It’s not a hard foul, it’s a foul. The referee hid behind VAR, saying, ‘It’s not clear,’ adding, “It seemed to be talking to a microwave.” There is not even an answer. “It’s always the case,” he said, expressing dissatisfaction with the decision.
Brentford defeated Liverpool 2-1 in November 1938 and defeated Liverpool again in 84 years. In 84 years, he lost two draws and seven losses in nine matches.
