Jurgen Klopp will be happy his Liverpool side chalked up a clean sheet to their name as the Reds marched to a 3-0 win over Maribor in the UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool have continued their march towards the knockout phases of the UEFA Champions League. A 7-0 away win at Maribor was followed by a 3-0 win against the same opponent, this time at home, thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge.
Fans hailed Liverpool’s display while also highlighting the fact that Liverpool kept a clean sheet in the midst of it. But, the night was somewhat dampened by James Milner’s penalty miss.
Penalty miss from Milner, who takes them now?

And some said Milner should have taken the Penalty Salah missed against Huddersfield, haha. Who else now?! We are just unlucky not to score our penaltie lately. Nothing else.

Milner missed a penalty? football really is the beautiful game

Firmino, Mo Salah, and Milner have each missed a penalty this season. Not a good sign about this team’s nerves under pressure…

If anyone can, Emre Can

Emre Can signing a new contract at this club would genuinely be amazing. He was exceptional today, still only young too. @LFC, get on it!

Emre Can at his best. Driving from deep.
Exceptional goal 2-0
