Liverpool -

Empat kekalahan beruntun sudah Liverpool rasakan di Liga Inggris. Legenda klubnya, Graeme Souness sampai bilang The Reds sekarang jadi bulan-bulanan.

Terbaru pada Minggu (21/2) Liverpool dikalahkan rival sekota, Everton di kandang sendiri dalam lanjutan Premier League. Mo Salah dkk kalah dengan skor 0-2.

Everton mampu membuat gol cepat di menit ketiga lewat Richarlison. Lalu di menit ke-83, Gylfi Sigurdsson memantapkan kemenangan The Toffees.

Hasil itu membuat Everton menempel ketat Liverpool di Klasemen Liga Inggris. Liverpool tetap di peringkat keenam dengan 40 poin dari 23 laga. Everton cuma kalah selisih gol, tapi punya satu laga belum dimainkan.

Pundit sepakbola yang juga legenda Liverpool, Graeme Souness mengkritik The Reds habis-habisan. Liverpool katanya seperti tidak berenergi!

"Liverpool tidak berenergi, sangat mengecewakan. Mereka tidak terlihat agresif seperti sebelum-sebelumnya," katanya seperti dilansir dari Sky Sports.

Liverpool sebenarnya memberikan perlawanan ketat. Hanya saja, lini pertahanan Everton cukup kuat dan Jordan Pickford begitu tangguh menjaga gawangnya.

Bahkan, Graeme Souness juga mengucap kalimat sarkas kepada Liverpool. Baginya karena Liverpool sudah empat kali kalah beruntun di Liga Inggris (kalah dari Brighton, Manchester City, Leicester City, dan Everton), semua tim berlomba-lomba mau menghadapi The Reds. Ya, tim-tim lainnya suka Liverpool bak jadi bulan-bulanan!

"Semua tim sekarang maunya melawan Liverpool, karena mudah dikalahkan. Itu membuat saya sedih," tutupnya.
