BRE 3-3 LIV: 2 Mistakes Jurgen Klopp Made As Liverpool Drew With Brentford In Today's Match

Liverpool failed to grab all three points against Brentford in today's match. Jurgen Klopp side played brilliantly in today's match but Thomas Frank side played even better and responded to what Liverpool threw at them. It wasn't the performance most Liverpool fans would have anticipated for but Brentford gave Jurgen Klopp side a tough time today. Thomas Frank will really be impressed with his team's performance in today's match, they really fought back to share points with the visitors. Jurgen Klopp was lucky to get away with a draw today, here are the two mistakes he made in today's match.

1. Tactics: Jurgen Klopp decided to play with an attacking tactics in today's match leaving Brentford to get behind their defense easily. Brentford showed more of an attacking threat in today's match, they played well against Liverpool today as they've been this season. Fabinho and Jordan Henderson were supposed to play deeper roles in today's match but were much involved in the attacks. Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip wouldn't get the job done alone, that was the quality Liverpool lacked in today's match and Brentford took it as an advantage.

Diogo Jota scored the equalizer for Liverpool in the first half of the match after they earlier fell behind in the first half. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead in the second half but it didn't last long as Brentford got the equalizer in no time. Liverpool thought it was all settled after Curtis Jones scored in the second half but Brentford came back from behind to get the equalizer. Jurgen Klopp will definitely be pleased with his team performance despite the result, they played well in attacks but wouldn't say same defensively.

2. Unnecessary Substitution: Jurgen Klopp took Curtis Jones off right after he scored in the second half of the match. Curtis Jones wasn't having a bad game but Jurgen Klopp still decided to take the Englishman off. Roberto Firmino replaced Curtis Jones in the second half and he never had an impact in the match. Curtis Jones would have made few impact in the final minutes if he played till the final whistle went off. It wasn't the best call from Jurgen Klopp to let Curtis Jones leave after he scored their third goal.
