Cody Gakpo was close to scoring for Liverpool just before the hour mark. After a pass from Mohamed Salah, the former PSV player kicked the ball wide.
Gakpo and Virgil van Dijk were basic players at Liverpool, who were unable to field Darwin Núñez and Joe Gomez due to injuries.
Liverpool had won the previous two Premier League games against Everton and Newcastle United. Gakpo scored in both matches. At the start of the week, however, there was a penalty at Anfield in the knockout stages of the Champions League against Real Madrid (2-5).
