Can the real Liverpool team please stand up? A week after beating Spurs 2-0 at home and looking once again like contenders for that 4th Champions League spot, Liverpool traveled to Wolves and could only manage a 0-0 draw.
Even with captain Steven Gerrard back in the line-up, Liverpool lacked that cutting edge in front of goal, something that Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez alluded to in his post-match press conference.
“We didn’t create clear chances and the final pass in the final third was the difference. In the second half they were pushing harder and we had to defend, but we still had some good counterattacks. Again the final pass was the difference. If you analyze the game, then the result is fair.”
The team Liverpool beat last week Spurs, got back on the winning track defeating Spurs 2-0 at White Hart Lane behind goals from Peter Crouch and David Bentley. With the win Spurs moved up to 4th place in the table, three points ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City.
At the bottom of the table Bolton’s new manager Owen Coyle guided his team to a 1-0 win over former club Burnley, while Portsmouth remained fixed at the bottom of the table after drawing 1-1 at home with West Ham.
