What Michael Owen said as Real Madrid thrashed Liverpool
Following Tuesday's 5-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, BT Sport analyst Michael Owen asserted that there are numerous causes for Liverpool's below-average season.
Vinicius, Eder Militao, and Karim Benzema all scored to secure Real Madrid's victory over Liverpool at Anfield.
With their defense of the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup coming to an end, Liverpool has had a challenging season as a result of the defeat to Real Madrid.
The team led by Jurgen Klopp is currently eighth in the Premier League standings.
However, according to Owen, there are numerous factors at play and none of them alone can be blamed for the decline this season.
“In the COVID-19 hit season, Liverpool lost six in a row here at Anfield, which was unprecedented,” Owen said.
“Every Liverpool fan will have different reasons." Some will say the ownership. It is never one thing. Football isn’t like that.
“You have injuries at the start with big players out, a lack of confidence, maybe a lack of investment in midfield. There are so many reasons why you could pick holes.
“They have had this before, and they bounced back.”
Liverpool will now hope to bounce back when they face Real Madrid in the return leg at the Santiago Bernabeu next month.
