ATLETICO DEFEAT SENDS OUT SHIVER AT ANFIELD

Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool lost another pre-season match at home to Athletico Madrid 2-0.
Jamie Carragher limped off after 13 minutes with an ankle injury and with an inexperienced back four, we soon conceeded two goals by Aguerro and Diego Forlan.
Without Alonso, now at Madrid, we looked shapeless and rudderless.
Despite this Liverpool got more into the game in the second half and a goal by much-maligned Lucas Lieva gave the Reds a glimmer of hope, but it was not to be as the Spanish gained the win.
I have watched all our pre-season games on LFC TV and apart from the 5-0 win against Singapore, we have looked pretty average.
We have a tough opener against Spurs at White Hart Lane next Sunday and I am worried that we might find the opening weeks of the season tough going, I really hope that I am proved wrong.
