Liverpool now find themselves leading by only three points at the top of the Premier League table after dropping another two point against West Ham United.
The Reds will be determined not to let Manchester City overtake them in the race for the title as they’ll be extremely difficult to catch if they do so. Indeed, the Merseyside club had a healthy seven point lead over the Citizens at one point, but things have quickly changed as a lack of consistency continues to let them down.
Roberto Firmino hasn’t been at his best in recent times, so perhaps the Reds should have gone all out to sign Timo Werner, who was linked (as per German publication Abendzeitung) with a move to Anfield last month.
Supporters must feel gutted that they failed to land the German in January.
Indeed, the Germany international has established himself as one of the best forwards in world football over the past couple of seasons, and he has an impressive 13 goals to his name in 23 appearances in the current campaign. Werner would’ve provided the deadly finishing touch that has been missing in recent times.
So, with the Reds’ lead slowly slipping away at the top of the table, perhaps Jurgen Klopp’s side would’ve left Manchester City in the dust if FSG had done everything they possibly could to secure Werner. He has the ability to create something special out of absolutely nothing, along with an electrifying amount pace and a world-class finishing ability, which makes him the perfect forward to have alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Liverpool have had to resort to trying to get the best out of Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi off the substitutes’ bench recently, which hasn’t worked for them at all. It’s clear to see that the Reds could definitely do with another quality attacker at their disposal, with opportunities being squandered in front of goal.
