Lack of creativity is undermining Liverpool's Premier League title bid

Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher heaped praise on Virgil van Dijk following Liverpool's frustrating 0-0 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon. "I've been a manager myself and sometimes you sit there after a game and think "I shouldn't have done that".

The commanding Dutch defender was imperious at the back, keeping another Premier League clean sheet but Liverpool's forwards failed to hit the back of the net as they were held 0-0 at Goodison Park.

"You've only lost one PL game this season, but drawn 7 and that's why City are above you".

"In this moment I think they have to feel bit disappointed".

But Pele, widely considered the greatest soccer player in history, has chosen his side two-plus months ahead of time.

Liverpool are now one point adrift of Manchester City with nine matches remaining and they are under enormous pressure to return to top form.

Melissa Reddy knows Liverpool better than most journalists and she explains why the Merseyside Derby was such a disappointment for the club and why a conservative approach seems to have got the better of Klopp at this stage of the season.

"It's another draw but Manchester United and Everton away are tough games, tough away games. It's football - we don't play Playstation", he said. They drew 0-0 at the venue in April 2018 and fell victim to a 90th-minute Sadio Mane decider in December 2016.

This is the type of history Guardiola is evidently chasing at City, but it could be argued he has the squad to do so, while Liverpool are better off sustaining just the one challenge.

"A win like that would reignite Liverpool and that's why I think it's insane to suggest they should focus on the Premier League and would be better off out of the Champions League". "It is nice but there are lots of games to play".

"There are nine games to go, we don't lose our nerve like you obviously".

"So we needed to go for the win but we needed to be switched on, which we were". But when that doesn't happen it's important you don't concede and come away with nothing.
