Liverpool need their own Sergio Agüero. There’s no need for foreplay, or context, or even to reflect on the glory days of yester-year, when Liverpool were famed for their mercurial number nines. All one needs to see is the reaction from Manchester City following James Milner’s penalty. They came at Liverpool, they scored a goal, and they left gaps in their team for Klopp’s counterattack to exploit. Make no mistake; Liverpool punished City for leaving those gaps. They did everything …
