LiverpoolDraw 4:4 with the heir Southampton on the last day of the 2022/23 season Premier League the season embodied the tumultuous nature of their campaign, shedding light on the good, the bad, and the impenetrable.
Jurgen KloppThe team has been commanding over the past few years, but this season has been ridden on a bumpy road without seatbelts and consequently left in disarray, failing to qualify for next year’s Champions League for the first time in history. seven years.
A victory on the south coast would not affect the Reds’ final position in the league, but it did highlight the problems that are very ubiquitous in Klopp’s side, permeating like an acrid odor despite creating a purple blotch at the end of the season that recorded seven wins on a trot culminating in consecutive draws ending the campaign .
The offensive momentum remained intact at St. Mary’s Stadium and it’s not an area of interest before the summer transfer window. The rather chaotic defensive problems were on full display and reminded Klopp and co that changes had to be made soon, and while captain Jordan Henderson would be penalized for “terrifyingJames Pearce’s mistake from The Athletic, Joe Gomez was at the epicenter.
How did Joe Gomez play against Southampton?
Gomez, integral to winning the Premier League and Champions League for his team at Anfield, must now be sold after another howl; he is simply immersed in depths too great to overcome as his manager searches for the right way back to success.
The £95,000 a week dynamo failed to cut mustard against Southampton and was rated a low match rating of 6.3 Sofa scorewinning only two of his six tackles, and although he made 93% of his passes and succeeded on five of his six long ball attempts, he was unable to stop the torrent that allowed the home team to come back from a two-goal deficit to lead 4–2.
Perhaps the most telling part of the show was Gomez’s actual contribution to the defense, with one clearing and one interception of the range of his work, a missed attack and leaving LFC podcaster Graeme Kelly calling him “finished“.
Neil Jones from Goal gave a one-time prospect to Charlton Athletic 5/10 match ranking and said he “wasn’t commanding enough”, which sums it up given the caliber of a Liverpool centre-back in need of a return to his former glory.
Gomez must receive sympathy for his woes; fell victim Three serious injuries during his time at Liverpool and no doubt and understandable setbacks hampered his setbacks, but after a chaotic collective season for the Reds, Klopp must be ruthless as he devises a formula that will lead his team back to the top flight.
He had made up his mind earlier by signing Allison £67 million after Loris Karius suffered the disgrace of the 17/18 Champions League final with mistakes and must do so again in the upcoming transfer market.
Over the past few months, Gomez has also been the subject of discussions about a move away from Anfield, with four of Newcastle United’s best players connected with the 26-year-old in the last few months, Magpies manager Eddie Howe appeared to be a “big fan” 11 cap international England.
Liverpool are at a crucial moment and indeed have the opportunity to reassemble a squad ready to compete for major honors once again, and while Gomez has been steadfast in his Merseyside side, he may well have played his final game after another dismal performance.
