Liverpool attack slammed by Michael Owen who blasts "samey" midfield

Liverpool legend Michael Owen has slammed his former side's attacking style. Owen believes the style is hampering the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. The Reds are in the verge of a poor run of form. Jurgen Klopp has seen his side fail to score in five of last eight Premier League games. Owen believes their midfielders are not helping. “I think Liverpool are better when they have width. They get clustering. They have a lot of samey players in midfield in Thiago, Wijnaldum and Milner. “I would like to see them stretching play a lot more, upping the tempo, winning the ball high again, committing players forward to win the ball high, they have to do it, they have to stem it themselves because they don’t have the Anfield crowd. “You can react off the crowd, it’s a powerful thing but they can’t call upon that now they need to do it themselves to get this monkey off their back “It looks like there’s no energy in the team. Liverpool are used to winning the ball high, keeping the energy up, keeping a high tempo game. All of a sudden now it’s just not the Liverpool I’m used to watching, they rarely hunt in packs any more. It’s just not what we’re used to at the minute and they need to find something quick.”
