Josh Sexton’s player ratings for The Anfield Wrap after Brighton & Hove Albion 3 Liverpool 0 in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium…
ABSOLUTELY turgid, Liverpool.
We used to be such a well-oiled machine, each part with so many strengths to bring to the table and an overwhelming ability to limit the weaknesses of others.
Now the forwards expose the midfield, the midfield exposes the defence and the defence exposes the keeper — and there are very few bring any discernible strengths to the table, quite frankly.
Here are some numbers, which I’m sure will not make any of us feel better about anything…
His distribution is so poor at the moment, but he’s being completely exposed by his defence.
Getting roasted by Mitoma all day, but he’s being completely exposed by the setup of the side.
Was only a matter of time before one of them made a mistake like that, because we were absolutely intent on playing ourselves into danger over and over.
Did well considering how much he’s being exposed by the midfield.
Didn’t feel like he offered much today, but it’s hard when his teammates are only offering up gifts to the opposition.
Fuck knows, honestly.
Exposed by everything and everybody, including himself.
No idea where he was meant to be playing, probably exposed by the fact that he doesn’t know either.
Never in the game.
Feel sorry for him, exposed by how rubbish we are at the moment.
Not for the want of trying, but he should be about our sixth-choice left winger anyway.
Lost interest by that point, to be honest.
Determined to not let these ruin all my weekends until they sign some players or get lads back from injury.

Generous to be honest. How Hendo and (increasingly ironic) Fab got 3 is beyond me
Klopp will be convinced it’s just the injuries, though. He’s not a rebuilder.
Not sure how this can be fixed with the current squad.
Not sure it can be fixed in one, even two transfer windows.
The team looked so disillusioned. Only at the end did we inject some urgency in our play.
But again we looked toothless. Lacking in creative ideas, energy – mental and physical.
I think as soon as Pep Ljinders wrote his book, “Intensity”, we lost it.
Anyway, today was the first time I considered stopping watching a game. It could have been more than 3.
That shoreline flattered us. Today, Brighton looked like us last season, and we looked like the idiots we used to beat comfortably last season.
As soon as the line up was announced it was clear what was about to come. Theat midfield trio does not work at all. Fabhino and Henderson are just too slow and ineffective. At least Thiago puts himself about but that is not why he’s picked. Naby is far more progressive yet hardly gets a sniff.
Are FSG still saving Liverpool?
I think FSG are destroying Liverpool
But as long as FSG are paying your bills TAW eh?
Can you buy Josh a thesaurus? So his limited vocabulary won’t be so ‘exposed’. Is Ben injured too??
