Jurgen Klopp’s brand of football is so crazy, so relentless that Liverpool are always prone to making the kind of errors that let Roma back into this tie.
The Italians were on the canvas but individual Liverpool mistakes handed them a lifeline.
Dejan Lovren has to do better to stop Edin Dzeko’s goal. It was a very obvious run from the former Manchester City striker and Lovren had time to sort out his feet, drop off and head the ball away. Instead he was left floundering in mid-air. All of a sudden, the tie is still open.
Edin Dzeko scored one of Roma’s two goals as they took advantage of defensive lapses
Mo Salah’s stunning performance was like watching Lionel Messi in disguise but we should not overlook the crucial role Roberto Firmino played in creating his second goal.
Salah’s dink over Alisson was so sensational that it was easy to miss Firmino’s brilliance in the build-up. Picking up the ball from Salah, he travels a long way before waiting patiently to play a perfectly weighted pass.
The ball was so good that Salah only had to think about putting it in the back of the net.

Jordan Henderson was Liverpool’s guv’nor in midfield, constantly demanding his team-mates to put a foot in and win back the ball.
He has had such a difficult job following Steven Gerrard but Jurgen Klopp has instilled leadership qualities in his captain.
Now he must do this for England at the World Cup.
Jordan Henderson showed great leadership for Liverpool and must match it for England
