Poor August Gives Cause for Concern at Liverpool
Close: Divock Origi has 2 goals in 2 appearances, but couldn't help his team to a league win

Jamie Carragher's competitive debut was far from easy, as his first two games in charge saw Liverpool welcome both Manchester City and Chelsea to Anfield. Fans would have been expecting at least two points from those two games, followed by maximum points from the next two games: a visit to Newcastle followed by welcome Aston Villa to their home ground.

Carragher has previously discussed how important it is for your Home ground to be a "fortress", but Anfield was more of a draughty shack this month, as the redmen only managed one point from a possible 9 at home, and only picked up a point against Newcastle on the road. Divock Origi has had a bright start to his Liverpool Career, scoring against both Chelsea and Man City, but it wasn't enough for Liverpool to pick up any wins.


Anfield | 46,122
Liverpool 1-2 Manchester City

Goals: Divock Origi, David Silva, Yaya Toure

Truthfully, a poor game for Liverpool. David Silva put City ahead after only two minutes, with Yaya Toure adding City's second just before half-time. Liverpool's passing and movement was at times shocking, although there were signs of improvement in the second half. Divock Origi pulled one back after 68 minutes with a spectacular volley, but there just wasn't enough about this Liverpool side to salvage a point.

Liverpool 1-3 Chelsea

Goals: Divock Origi, Falcao, Eden Hazard (2)

Another poor performance by Liverpool, and one which has raised some doubts over Carragher's management ability - after a superb second-half performance last week, Divock Origi was once again relegated to the bench, and only made an appearance in the 70th minute, netting 5 minutes after that to pull one back for his club. Many fans felt after the game that he should have started, as he really brought a cutting edge to Liverpool's play.

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle United

Goals: Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, Seydou Doumbia (2)

Liverpool showed more of a cutting edge this time around, as Benteke and Firmino linked up twice to devastate the Newcastle defence in the first half. However, Liverpool's centre-back pairing of Sakho and Skrtel proved to be the achilles heel, losing Doumbia twice in the second half, as he scored two simple tap-ins to give the Magpies a draw. This game also saw the first-team debut of young Right back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was, in fairness, one of the best players on the pitch, posing a constant threat to Newcastle's defence with some intelligent runs and dangerous passing.
Anfield | 45, 552
Liverpool 1-1 Aston Villa

Goals: Phillipe Coutinho, Ashley Westwood

Another poor performance for Liverpool who should really have expected to put several goals past Aston Villa, but it turned to to be the Villains who were the dominant side. Phillipe Coutinho was the only bright spark in an otherwise dull Liverpool side, and his goal was pure individual brilliance, as he skipped through the Villa defence before chipping the ball into the net from a tight angle. Once again though, the Merseyside club couldn't hold their lead, and Ashley Westwood rose unmarked at a corner to head his side level with 5 minutes to go.

Next Month, Liverpool face Tottenham, Swansea and Stoke in the League, as well as starting their Europa League campaign against Schalke, and also face-off against Leicester in the Capital One Cup. Carragher will be hoping they can show more steel than they have this month in those ties, or fans may well start questioning his ability to succeed at the highest level.
Ah tricky month, I wouldn't be too disheartened by losses to Liverpool, City and a couple of draws. Your tactic should become more familiar as the season goes on.
Not the best of months but we are Liverpool! Anything can happen! :D
That was a ok month but not great hopefully you an build on it
well, I say
Not the best start to the season but I know that you can pull it back soon and get some good results
