Liverpool are in a disastrous run of form. Who would’ve thought at the start of this season that there would be a point when the Reds would be three games without a win? We’ve taken two points from nine. It isn’t the end of the world but it is clear evidence that Liverpool need to sign Erling Haaland.
Two points from nine
Liverpool are in their worst run of form for some time.
We had some tricky runs towards the end of last season but the league was done and dusted then.
West Brom came to Liverpool and dug in deep, frustrating the hosts.
Newcastle United had some heroic moments at the back, their keeper had the game of his life.

Southampton followed the script left out by the other two sides with added defensive heroics and some bizarre refereeing.
Liverpool need a number nine
Roberto Firmino is one of the finest creators in the game.
The Brazilian often unlocks defences with clever footwork and a deft touch.
However, when it doesn’t work. When it can’t work due to how deep and compact the defence is, we need something different.
We need a number nine to hang on the shoulder, around the penalty spot. A nine to get on the end of crosses, to be a focal point.
Liverpool need to sign Erling Haaland
There are plenty of options out there but if you’re going for anyone you should go for the best available.
Liverpool need to sign Erling Haaland to transform their fortunes in front of goals.
He is accustomed to playing intense pressing football, he is lightning quick and he is a deadly finisher.
What’s more is he will only get better. He is going to continue to improve in the coming years, we need to make sure he does so at Anfield.
90Min believes he would cost around £100m, he’d be bargain at that price.
