Tranmere 2 Liverpool 3

First of all, there were some good performances in the first half at Tranmere and secondly there were some slipshod showings in the second half.  In the opening 45 minutes young Rafa Camacho playing as a right back cum right winger impressed, was involved in a fair bit and scored following good work by Sheyi Ojo.  It was Ojo himself who scored a second.  When the returning Adam Lallana added a third another rout seemed more likely than not.  Keita and Fabinho showed useful touches which was obviously pleasing.  Only the second half saw a totally different team both in personal and performance.  Hard to think of anyone who stood out; we could [should] have added to the goals tally but lacked a fair bit when around the goal.  Then there was Loris Karius!  Okay, the manager doesn’t want to dwell on his basic error that threw Tranmere a lifeline and that’s Jürgen’s choice.  Jürgen doesn’t want to dwell upon it but you can bet the media will.  The second Tranmere goal followed more ineptness, this time involving James Milner and youngster Pedro Chirivella and the ‘walkover’ became a contest.
