quite a few of the players just looked fatigued. like mentally fatigued. big ask to follow up on the last 2 seasons, and we knew liverpool weren't going to go anyhere. still obviously very early but 8 points down this early and laporte not back until the new year. plus that fortune of last season where we got the last gasp goals, deflections away and other little things that go your way at critical moments seems to have disappeared.
