Why cutting down on crosses isn't the answer for Liverpool - Opinion

Posted On: 3 Mar 2021   |   Posted By: The Empire of The Kop

There are a whole host of potential reasons as to why Liverpool's usual method of producing goals just isn't working out for them at the moment.
Ranging from the injury to key man Virgil van Dijk to Trent Alexander-Arnold's poor form, there are a mire of excuses that the club could bury themselves in, but the fact of the matter is that something has to change.
Our current approach of pinging hopeful crosses into the box, as if we had former signings Andy Carroll and Christian Benteke looming over the keeper, just isn't going to cut it - or so some claim.
Trent Alexander-Arnold attempted 18 open-play crosses for Liverpool vs. Burnley , the only player in the PL across the last five seasons to not complete a single cross with 12+ attempts in a game.
