Analysis: Luton Town 1-1 Liverpool

Steve Sutcliffe, BBC Sport

Luis Diaz's goal delivered an emotional and remarkable conclusion to this encounter in his first match since his parents were kidnapped in Colombia.

However, when Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp watches this match back there will be little else to take encouragement and joy from.

It was a performance that he will quickly want to move on from with his side, who are usually so fluent in attack, short of inspiration in the final third.

The balance and coordination of Liverpool’s midfield axis of Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch also appears in need of some fine tuning.

At Kenilworth Road they gave little indication that they complement the talents of each other with Mac Allister’s position, often at the base of that trio, seemingly restricting his influence.

Given Klopp’s side travel to Manchester City later this month it may be an issue that requires immediate attention.
