“Firmino created four goal scoring opportunities from just seven completed final third passes after the break.

Only Kevin de Bruyne (with six) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (four) have created more than three clear-cut chances in total in the Premier League this season, yet the fulcrum of Liverpool’s forward line delivered three in the space of 16 second half minutes.”

Pepe is the flop of the season, looks so underwhelming.
Thought he looked threatening on the counter, albeit very raw against us.

Put himself in a position to score or create a chance on a few occasions but just lacked the polish and end product.

Yeah Pepe had a good game against Liverpool, I knew there had been a game where he looked on it. Way too early to be writing him off.

Art Vandelay_ im not writing off N’Dombeie btw. Just saying the same thing applies to him as it does Pepe. It’s different when you’ve come from the Spainish or German leagues with a high reputation than it is when you’ve come from France

Yeah, every other game we've let in a goal. 2 in the supercup vs Chelsea.
So like every other top club basically, everyone seems defensively fragile currently. Wonder why? Are other teams better propped up offensively?

5 games in is not a lot of data, maybe I'll make judgement on this after 10 games and say the first 5 were an aberration
