Following a return to winning ways against West Bromwich Albion last week, involving attacking flair, a clear gameplan and an obvious change in mentality, our most recent defeat at the hands of Liverpool acts as quite the contrast.
After conceding early on in our usual fashion, we reacted superbly for the next 30 minutes and asserted ourselves as the dominant force. But as we’ve seen so many times already this season, we not only failed to take our chances while on top, we also opted to take our foot off the gas and display a gutless second-half performance. Something that’s inexcusable while in the midst of a relegation battle.
So just how much blame should be placed on Mauricio Pellegrino for this showing? Which players are giving their all to drag us out of this mess? and just how important are Southampton’s upcoming fixtures?
Join us as we answer these questions and much more alongside Anfield Index in our review of Sunday’s clash.
