But owners FSG must have thought a League Cup tie against a weakened Arsenal side at Anfield seemed like the perfect way to ease into it.

Liverpool's first audition without Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah was always going to be difficult.

There was a genuine sense that Liverpool were going to go on a scoring spree following Xhaka's kung-fu kick on Diogo Jota — as they have often done against Arsenal in recent years, particularly at Anfield.

Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino all squandered major opportunities to give the Reds the lead.

But in the long-term, if Liverpool have to continue playing without Salah and Mané in just 18 months time, the consequences could be dire, and FSG have to act before it is too late.

But without Salah and Mané, Liverpool looked uninspired in attack this time around, and they could not capitalise on the frailty of their opponents, no matter how much they tried.

Just a little under two months ago, a similar Liverpool side — but with Salah and Mané in the starting XI — dispatched a much stronger Arsenal team 4-0 with consummate ease.
