He could have done better on the first goal, his hand doesn't look strong and so unconvincing while making anticipation.

He misjudged the timing of his footing fleaving him no chance or the first goal. Unfortunate and blameless for the second goal for there were so many bodies in front of him and the ball still trickled in.
Second goal it's not just the bodies, it's the fact that the ball went under the legs of all three of our defenders!
More blame goes to Brozovic for missing Salah's move and De Vrij for a poor clearance. But overall, the team was mentally down in the second one.

First goal was tricky, the header seemed like a very poor attempt initially and it was hit by the nape rather than the head and the defensive setup was not that great. Needed an extra defender on the second post there which would have stopped the goal. Could have been stopped if he didn't anticipate a different trajectory and perhaps should have been more conservative with his first post since Vidal (iirc) was covering that one and should have been aware that there wasn't anyone else in the far post.

First goal was game changing. Overall unlucky game since they weren't dangerous at all but two flukes shaped the game.

Yeah Handa took a step to the left right at the time Firmino touched the ball and by then it was all too late. Wouldn't blame him much. Btw Klopp praised their coaching stuff and analysts for that goal so I guess it was trained one (I guess a bit like our Calha corner - Perisic front post header combo).

yeap, that little step to the left before the Firmino header was the finisher. Perhaps if he had longer hands, but otherwise, you are just fucked. And the second goal was just a cluster fuck of legs. That ball could have turned in any direction. Just look at the replay behind Salah, you cant see shit if you're the goalkeeper.

Handanovic made Firmino goal look somewhat spectacular which in reality should've been a pretty easy save hadn't he had such poor anticipation and horrible footwork.

He has seldom been a factor in decisive games in the past but this year a Handa or De Vrij mistake is becoming a regular occurrence, Onana better be up to the task.

It's really hard to say if Onana will be as good as we want him to, but fresh legs are needed in goal as well. At least we know that Onana isn't bad with his passing

Worst conceded goal of the season for him. Shame.

The opponents' GKs keep blocking the shots we aim at em. Meanwhile our GK cannot even stop the shots directly at him. He conceded some really saveable shots in crucial matches and it's costing us dearly.

While we have so many issues, I really think he tops the list. Imagine the pressure on our defenders knowing so much as allowing a shot on target will likely be a goal? Having a good goalie inspires confidence in every other player on the field. And when this guys form goes down everyone's does.

Another fucking trash performance. I don’t blame the second goal on him btw. Consigli is world class compared to him. 🤣 It gets to the point where every time an opponent shoots, my heart skips a beat. Dude can’t do absolutely jackshit.
