The two red stars failed to meet expectations in front of goal.

Former

Liverpool

striker Peter Crouch believes Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have failed to score and he does not expect the two to score in front of goal.

Liverpool's attacking line has performed very well over the past few seasons, but this year has fallen short of expectations. Their poor performance has drawn criticism, with fans questioning their performance. Now Crouch claims that he does not expect the two to be successful in scoring goals in the upcoming matches.

He told

Daily Mail

:

"One thing jumped out at me on Saturday when I was watching the game. It was the moment Salah got through in the first half and teed it up for Mane to finish. The Mane of last year or the year before doesn't think twice and he puts his foot through it.

"When he took a touch, however, I knew that was it. His confidence has deserted him and it's the same for Firmino. I watch Firmino play and I see a beautiful footballer, whose flicks and positional play are outstanding but when he takes a shot, I expect it to roll on the floor to the goalkeeper.

"It's important to stress that these two players command so much respect and I am not in the business of saying they should be sold. I was asked about moving them on by a reader last week and I found it disrespectful to say, after all they have done, that they should be sold.

"I'm prepared to give both of them some grace this season because things have been so strange. Liverpool need the season to end, their players need to be re-energised and I wouldn't write them off. At the same time, they really do have something to prove in August."
