Philippe Coutinho knows what Liverpool require defensively

Philippe Coutinho knows what Liverpool require defensively”

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho believes the whole team is to blame for the high number of goals they have conceded this season.

Tottenham's attack was the latest to take advantage of their leaky defence as they won 4-1 at Wembley on Sunday, with the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City and the 3-3 draw with Watford on the opening day of the season also adversely affecting their goal-difference.

The Merseyside outfit have allowed 16 goals to be shipped past them in nine Premier League games, and all but one of those were conceded on the road.

"I don't they are [being coached defensively], it doesn't look like it", he said during Sky Sports' the Debate. It can not be that we concede that many goals away.

This isn't to dismiss Coutinho's words but to draw attention to the unwelcome reality that players in their late twenties with years of underwhelming performances in a Liverpool shirt can not be expected to produce more.

"I'm sure a lot of criticism will come our way and deservedly so, we can't keep doing it, we've got to change it quickly, otherwise you lose games and you lose them badly like we did today". It was not that they played the ideal ball with our mistakes.

Then the next one was after 12 or 13 minutes.

Manager Jurgen Klopp even criticized Lovren after the game, saying: "The whole game, the whole result was all our fault - Tottenham was good, they needed to be good, but we made it much too easy for them". It's hard to play away from home against a strong team when you start like that. So we need to concentrate more to deal with balls like this. "We have to concentrate more to deal with them".

"We have to work hard".
