Liverpool star admits Reds self-confidence ‘a bit down’ after Man Utd draw

The Reds drew 0-0 with Manchester United on Sunday evening, meaning they are now four league games without victory.

They have also now failed to score in their last three Premier League matches.

The reigning champions are now 4th in the table and three points off of league leaders United.

Summer recruit Thiago, who made his Anfield debut in the clash, says his new side must do better in order to take back pole position.

 

 

Speaking to Liverpool’s official website after the game, he spoke honestly about the draw.

“Without winning, we are never satisfied,” He said. “We made a superb first half, then the second half was 50-50.”

“We are happy in some way with our performance – how we did in some moments of the game. But we have to do much better to be on top of the league.

Thiago touched on the team’s disappointment at not being able to put away the opportunities they created.

He continued: “We were intense, we were creating the chances that made us closer to winning. When we didn’t realise and didn’t make the goals, we’re just getting our self-confidence a bit down and that’s why the game changed a bit.

“At the end, it’s football and in some minutes of the game you are in high emotions and sometimes you are low – it’s part of the game.”

Staying positive

However, despite this assessment, the Spain international said Liverpool have the attacking prowess to pull them out of their sticky patch.

“Look at the guys we have in front – not just the big three, let’s say that,” he added.

“We have Div [Origi], we have Shaq [Xherdan Shaqiri], we have Taki [Takumi Minamino]. We have many players that can score, people in the midfield that can score as well, people from the defence can score.

“It’s a matter of creating the chances that we are creating to be effective.”

Liverpool go again on Thursday evening when they take on strugglers Burnley.
