Liverpool's attacking performances have fallen sharply from the past.
Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has criticized the team's attacking line, claiming that the three Reds strikers have become a shadow of their past.
The defending champions lost 1-0 to Burnley last night to record their fifth winless game. Also,Liverpool
's record of 68 unbeaten games at home was finally broken last night, and their difference with the top of the table, Manchester United, reached 6 points.
Salah and Firmino, who started the game last night from the bench due to their poor performances in recent weeks, could not do anything in the second half and Mane had a disappointing performance. Aldridge has now criticized the performance of Liverpool's attacking line.
“The front three are getting fingers pointed at them and quite rightly so because you’re paid to score goals.
“You’re on a lot of money to score goals and you have to do it. Centre-forwards have to score one in every two games basically and they’re not doing it.
“It dumbfounds me. A team that is free-scoring the way Liverpool are, to go from one extreme to the other. We were all worried about the defence but the defence have been brilliant.
“It’s the attacking part and the front three have lost their mojo.
“Mane looks a threat, more so than Salah or Firmino. They look a pale shadow of the players we know they can be. The ball isn’t falling for them and the confidence isn’t there.
“It just shows when the confidence is down, the play isn’t great, that you snatch at things as well. It’s really worrying. For whatever reason, they're not creating chances.
