Liverpool is experiencing a dramatic general for Ajax with a new injury case


Saturday, November 28, 2020 at

Liverpool have had a dramatic final for the Champions League meeting with Ajax, despite the fact that at least for a while the Premier League has taken the lead. The Reds A goal from Diogo Jota led to a minimal victory over Brighton & Hove Albion, partly due to two rejected goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané. A penalty kick in injury time after interference from the VAR ultimately resulted in the game ending in a 1-1 draw. Moreover, Liverpool saw James Milner also drop out with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that his team had to take up early on Saturday afternoon after their midweek efforts in the Champions League, in which they lost 0-2 to Atalanta. Relative to that game, Rhys Williams, Joel Matip, Curtis Jones, Divock Origi and Sadio Mané disappeared from the starting eleven, in favor of Fabinho, Nathaniel Phillips, Takumi Minamino, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota. The visitors got off to the best start on the English south coast and soon got opportunities via Jota and Salah.

At the same time, Liverpool was frightened early in the game, when Aaron Connolly showed up freely in the penalty area and shot wide of goalkeeper Alisson Becker. After twenty minutes of play, Brighton had the best chance of taking the lead when referee Stuart Attwell put the ball on the spot after a foul by Neco Williams on Connolly. Neal Maupay, however, placed the ball from eleven meters next to the post and soon afterwards had to be replaced injured. Liverpool was also extremely close to the opening goal before half-time.

Minamino managed to offer Mohamed Salah a free passage with a viewed pass. The attacker who escaped the defense of Brighton managed to outwit goalkeeper Matthew Ryan with a bouncing shot, but this hit left a line after interference from the video referee’s lines. After Minamino’s pass, Salah turned out to have been offside by a few millimeters. It took fifteen minutes after the break before the ban was broken in Brighton.

Salah brought in Jota, who after a dribble in the penalty area with a dry bang, scored his ninth goal in thirteen games for Liverpool. It was also his fifth goal in eight Premier League games, making him as fast as Robbie Fowler and faster than Dirk Kuyt and Salah (five hits in nine matches) to this number. The remainder of the game did not go smoothly for the visitors, as James Milner had to be replaced by Jones with a hamstring injury fifteen minutes before the end. Shortly before, Adam Lallana (ex-Liverpool) was forced to leave the field after a raid of just eight minutes.

In the final phase, Brighton emphatically encouraged the search for the equalizer. However, Liverpool seemed to make the final decision six minutes before time, when the substitute Mané hit the head. Again, the VAR put a line through a goal from Liverpool due to offside. The video referee once again played a key role in injury time when referee Attwell was called to the screen after an alleged foul by Andy Robertson on Danny Welbeck. Despite appearing that Robertson was merely trying to shoot the ball away, Attwell decided to give a penalty kick. Pascal Groß hit the mark from the spot and thus gave Liverpool an extremely bad feeling in the run-up to the game with Ajax next Tuesday.
