Liverpool need to kick bad habit fast and avoid extending concerning trend

Beyond then, though, it's imperative Liverpool snap out of the habit of sitting on one-goal leads for too long, as if they're a little too relaxed and just expecting the next goal to eventually arrive.

Picking holes in a team which has delivered 196 points across the last two Premier League seasons while winning a domestic, European and world title along the way risks veering into churlish territory.

Even when Liverpool weren't at their absolute best last season (and throughout 2018/19), they were brilliant at crushing the morale of the opposition and removing any semblance of belief that they could mount a comeback if they went behind.

Only once have they gone 3-0 up in that period, against Crystal Palace and Chelsea at Anfield.

Yet there is a large enough body of evidence now which suggests Liverpool haven't been quite such a relentlessly consistent machine for quite some time.

Nonetheless, perhaps the most concerning theme which has carried over from the final third of last season into the start of the new one is Liverpool's recurring inability to capitalise on dominance within matches by turning 1-0 into 2-0.

That hasn't been happening for a while now, and it's a habit Liverpool could really do with regaining fast – not just because they need to stop presenting teams with lifelines, but also because winning more comfortably allows them to conserve energy later on in games, and also afford game time to those who need it.
