Liverpool could really do with a clinical striker
Both Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino should have found the back of the net in the final ten minutes, and substitute Divock Origi failed to make any impact when introduced on the left flank in place of Philippe Coutinho.
Had either of those attacking players been able to finish their chances, the Reds could have leapfrogged Manchester City into third and have been in an even more commanding position going into the final weeks of the season.
That said, Sergio Aguero was not much better for Manchester City, with Raheem Sterling also missing a couple of easy chances that could have made the score an entirely different result. If anyone at the Etihad had had their shooting boots on, the race for the top four could have a whole different complexion.
