"Without winning, we are never satisfied. We made a superb first half, then the second half was 50-50. We are happy in some way with our performance – how we did in some moments of the game – but we have to do much better to be on top of the league." Alcantara said.

"Without winning, we are never satisfied. We made a superb first half, then the second half was 50-50.
"We are happy in some way with our performance – how we did in some moments of the game – but we have to do much better to be on top of the league.
"We were intense, we were creating the chances that made us closer to winning. When we didn’t realise and didn’t make the goals, we’re just getting our self-confidence a bit down and that’s why the game changed a bit. At the end, it’s football and in some minutes of the game you are in high emotions and sometimes you are low – it’s part of the game.
"At the end, we have the privilege to play football, to keep having our work, our love: that is playing football here. And we have to defend the desire of the people to be here. We have to play for them because it’s a hard moment for all of us. For sure, with fans everything is different."Liverpool
has recently been dealing with the matter of failing to find a form in the matches and has run the last five matches with three draws and one defeat.
Alcantara defended the team and said that they will soon get the hang of the games:
"Look at the guys we have in front – not just the big three, let’s say that.
"We have Div [Origi], we have Shaq [Xherdan Shaqiri], we have Taki [Takumi Minamino], we have many players that can score, people in the midfield that can score as well, people from the defence can score. It’s a matter of creating the chances that we are creating to be effective."
