Worst 3 Liverpool performers against Manchester United
Martin Skrtel is widely considered Liverpool’s best central defender but he is turning into a liability this season. Skrtel was poor against West Ham United and his performance against Manchester United over the weekend was simply terrible.
Skrtel failed to inspire from the back and the way he was bamboozled by the teenage Anthony Martial was simply amateurish. The Slovakian certainly needs to pull his socks up if Liverpool are to bring a halt to their slump.
Despite Dejan Lovren’s miserable performance against West Ham United, manager Brendan Rodgers decided to put faith in the defender for the blockbuster fixture against Manchester United.
Unfortunately though, Lovren was not able to repay his manager’s faith after putting in another poor display. Lovren seemed to be bullied by Marouane Fellaini and the Croatian international never really looked convincing throughout the course of the game.
Joe Gomez has deservedly been praised by many for his performances for Liverpool this season but the clash against Manchester United proved to be a steep learning curve for the young defender.
Although Gomez’s overall performance was decent, the defender displayed a lot of naivety to bring down Ander Herrera inside the box.
The penalty meant that Liverpool’s slim hopes of salvaging a point from the game was effectively put to rest and the defender will surely learn from the difficult experience.
