Liverpool’s four-match winning streak in the Premier League has ended. The Kop spent a lackluster 90 minutes against Brentford when they received a final 1-3 defeat. Poor defense becomes the typical image of Jurgen Klopp’s army.
Sharing in the media, former striker Michael Owen criticized midfielder Harvey Elliott’s error in the ball that led to The Kop’s second goal. Starting from Alisson Becker’s passing situation, Elliott left the ball thinking that behind him was a teammate.
However, the ball found the foot of a Brentford player. The bees immediately organized an attack. Mathias Jensen perfected a cross from the right to Yoane Wissa’s header to shake the Liverpool net.
Sharing on Premier League Productions, Owen commented on Elliott’s situation: “I don’t know what he did in that situation for the rest of my life. Elliott let the ball go past his feet. He had no reaction. Liverpool were outnumbered when Brentford attacked shortly after. The score was raised to 2-0 and The Kop faced many difficulties for the rest of the time.”
