Liverpool faced Hull in a game that was just about adequate. Balotelli is their striker and so far he has not fit in well with the team’s structure.
No goals were scored from either side during the match at Anfield. Chances were of course present but non of them were converted. This may have given Jakuovic a clean sheet as the Tigers’ goal keeper, but it meant that the Reds had only won five of their last 12 league matches!
Liverpool are eight points behind the Leaders, Chelsea, and need to find a way forward. Balotelli has joined Liverpool, yes. Balotelli is their striker, yes. However, if they expect changes in the scoreline, they will need to realise that football is a team sport (not an individual effort). They’re all in it together.
