Liverpool have become one of the most feared teams in the world in the past couple of years. The Reds have been staggeringly consistent under Jürgen Klopp, dropping just 32 points in the last two seasons. However, there was a tear in the fabric of reality last weekend when the Reds fell to a humiliating defeat. Liverpool taking on Everton is the perfect next game after the debacle.

Liverpool humiliated

This weekend we saw Liverpool humiliated at Villa Park.

Standing in for Alisson Becker, Adrian set the tone for the game early on when he gifted the hosts a goal with a sloppy pass to Joe Gomez.

Thereafter the defence appeared rocked, they looked short on confidence and Vill capitalised.

The game ended with a ridiculous score which I can’t bring myself to type. Though the visitors can count themselves unlucky to have conceded three heavily deflected goals.

Next game

After the international break the Reds will make the short trip across the park to take on noisy neighbours Everton.

The Ev are enjoying a good start to the season, they find themselves top of the table having won each of their four games so far.

Carlo Ancelotti has instilled a new attitude, a swagger. This could well see the Toffees actually come out and play in the derby.

Jürgen Klopp wins big games, this is certainly a big game. The Reds will be well aware that a win will see them draw level at the top of the table with their neighbours – a big enough win would put them top.

There can surely be no better game to remedy the Villa Park debacle given that the players will be able to send out a strong statement by beating their city rivals, potentially reclaiming top spot in the process.

A loss, however, could be calamitous. We can’t see that happening though, these Reds are mentally robust, they’ll be looking to set the record straight.
