Liverpool fans here in the Tavern look forward to the weekend’s game, in the hope of turning their recent couple of poor results around.
Having seen the firepower that Liverpool possess in the attacking third with arguably the most dangerous front-three in the Premier League, many teams now head to Anfield with the same game-plan, to park the bus.
However, this hasn’t pleased Liverpool fans one bit, with it believed to be the reason behind their slip-ups in recent games after causing multiple draws, although a clean-sheet is appreciated, a win would mean much more to the die-hard Reds fans.
Indeed, many supporters are critical of the way that their side fails to break down the opposition’s defenders, with their decision-making coming into question once again, after opting to pass their way into a shooting position, rather than drawing the defence out with a flurry of long-range efforts.
Becoming a successful team is all about how you adapt to the situation, which is something that’s separated Liverpool from reaching the level that league leaders Manchester City currently thrive off. After the disappointing bore-draw, the club’s Twitter account took to posting Ragnar Klavan’s thoughts on West Bromwich Albion’s defensive approach.
“For us, this is a big compliment if they come only for a draw here and it’s all they want.”

So, with Liverpool fans losing patience with their side, here’s a look at exactly what fans thought of the defender’s comments.
They came for a draw and got a draw, we went out to win and didn't. Not good enough. A point for them is a win, a draw for us is as bad as a defeat.

Can’t blame Coutinho for deciding to go. And Salah in the future when Barcelona come calling. Why would they want to stay..?They played for a draw maybe,but we should have played for a win. They got what they wanted and we didn’t.. We are a laughing stock now…

Seriously Klavan? What did you expect? We don’t need compliments. We need points.

Dont talk rubbish. Should be able to break down teams like that every day of the week. Is it a compliment to all the fans paying all that money to watch that rubbish?? And all JK does is complain about lack of injury time. Ffs
