2 Wrong Decisions Liverpool's Manager Made In Atletico Clash Despite Win

Liverpool continues in their winning streak yesterday as they cruised to a 3:2 win against Atletico Madrid in their UCL Champions League group matches. Liverpool's performance was impressive in the first 13 minutes as goals from Mohammed Salah and Baby Kieta gave them the early lead. Antoine Greizmann hits double to equalize the match for Atletico Madrid before halftime. A second-half goal from the penalty box clinched the victory for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

Liverpool's Manager made two wrong decisions in yesterday's match that could have cost him but was lucky enough to scale through it and this article states those wrong decisions.

1. Paring Kieta with Henderson and Milner:

Liverpool's Manager entered into the match with the 4-3-3 formation with Naby Kieta, Henderson, and James Milner in his midfield. Despite Kieta's recent performance, it seems his partnership with Henderson and Milner is not working as he makes lots of goal-scoring mistakes. In yesterday's match, he made a mistake the caused the equalizing goal despite scoring the second goal for Liverpool.

I think Liverpool's manager should make the right decision of using his normal trio of Fabinho, Henderson, and Milner which is a better formation than the one he used yesterday.

2. Starting Roberto Firmino Ahead of Diego Jota:

Another wrong decision was starting Firmino over-informed Jota. Diego Jota's performance recently has been magnificent and should have started in yesterday's match. Firmino wasn't at his best as he couldn't record any goal or assist in the match. One could understand that Jota's presence in the second half enhanced Liverpool's attack as he committed the Atletico Madrid's defenders to get a penalty which give his team the winning goal in the last minute of the match.

In my opinion, I suggest Liverpool's manager should always avoid making wrong decisions if he must win the UFEA Champions League trophy this season. Use the comment section to share your opinions.
