The only weakness that Liverpool demonstrated so far is that they have received at least by one goal in all five matches. More precisely, they capitulated exactly once in each league match, although they received goals only after having a significant advantage. The most difficult was away match in Southampton where goalkeeper Adrian made a big mistake. Liverpool won Arsenal 3-1 in the previous round, while goalkeeper Alisson is still out of action.
