Liverpool has not had the best of the starts at the ongoing edition of the Premier League as they have failed to secure a win in any of their opening three games. But the Reds forward Luis Diaz feels that the current situation is not “problematic” for the players or manager Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool has an outstanding campaign in the last season of the league. They finished second behind league champions Manchester City and were on most occasions always in the title race. But this season has seen the Merseyside club not getting their act together and are presently struggling at the 16th position with just two points in three games.
In the previous match, Liverpool suffered a defeat to rivals Manchester United 2-1. Mohammed Salah scored the lone goal for his team. With this loss, questions are being asked to Klopp’s side if they have pressed the panic button just yet. The star-forward Diaz has acknowledged that this has not been ideal but the 25-year-old feels that the situation has still not become precarious.
“It’s been a bit of a difficult start,” Diaz told Sky Sports. “It’s not quite the outset we wanted for the season. We’re a club that goes out to win three points from every game we play. I wouldn’t say it’s problematic for the players or for the manager but certainly, we all know we need to do better,” he added.
This is the first time Liverpool has failed to win any of their first three Premier League games in a decade. Though the first two games were not lost and in fact, their last previous 21 were not lost but there has been a trend emerging. The Merseyside club have conceded the first goal in their last seven premier league games. This is a sign of concern for the side that is one of the favourites to win the league title.
The Reds will be eager to register their first league win when they host the newly promoted Bournemouth on August 27 (Saturday).
