A legendary farewell

End of cycle. That is the feeling that Liverpool fans have had for a few weeks, who are increasingly seeing the precipice of not playing in the Champions League next season closer after being a leading team in Europe in the last five years. But they want to rush their options to the maximum and Roberto Firmino, too. The Brazilian, who was saying goodbye to Anfield after eight years, scored a goal that keeps (minimally) alive the hopes of being fourth. Together with Firmino (361 games as grid), Milner (331), Oxlade-Chamberlain (146) and Keita (129) leave, who also know that they will not renew after the end of their contract.

The game could have gone wrong very early on for Liverpool. Watkins ran into space a perfect pass from McGinn and Konaté gave him a very clumsy and hardly questionable penalty. The English forward himself was in charge of launching it and failing it. But this notice came to a head five minutes later, when Douglas Luiz hung a ball at the far post and Ramsey appeared by surprise to beat Alisson. The Brazilian couldn’t stop this shot, but he did deny him the double a little later when a rehearsed play of those that characterize Emery left him one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Mings still doesn’t even know how he avoided expulsion after planting the studs in Gakpo’s abdomen. The VAR reviewed it and did not believe it was necessary to call the main referee to see it on the monitor. Gakpo was also the protagonist of Liverpool’s clearest occasion, and almost the only quality one, when he pushed a loose ball that Konaté had previously hit on goal. However, from the VAR they saw that the Dutchman had controlled the ball with his hand.

After the injury to Álex Moreno he was injured in the 63rd minute, Liverpool only dreamed of a goal that would keep hopes open. And it came with suspense, in the 89th minute, when Firmino scored one of those passes from Salah that he has finished off so many times in recent years. To do this, you need Newcastle or Manchester United not to win any of their remaining two games and Liverpool to win Southampton next Sunday (even so, you should turn the game around). goal average overall with Newcastle, currently at +7). Hope is the last thing to be lost, they will say at Anfield.
