Just a few days ago, Liverpool were back to riding the crest of wave after claiming an impressive win in the Champions League. Fast forward to the present, and the overwhelming feeling is the club have hit rock bottom once again.
Its a phrase thats been said before in recent weeks, but after losing at home to Everton that feeling is at its peak. It was more than a defeat, it was the way it happened.
From the performance, to the Jordan Henderson injury, to the inevitable VAR controversy. Everything seems to be going against Liverpool at the moment, and the worrying thing is there are no signs of things changing or improving.
