“The most interesting dual in this game was the one between Drinkwater, who was surprising preferred to Fabregas on the left-hand side of the central midfielder three, and Philippe Coutinho,” Robson said.
“Rather than playing behind the main striker, he played on the left-hand side of Liverpool‘s midfield three.
“It was Coutinho the Brazilian who didn’t really affect the game enough.
“He couldn’t see a forward pass, he only had one pass that looked threatening and he didn’t really get in the game.
“Going the other way, Drinkwater made three runs going into the heart of Liverpool‘s defence and they caused problems, they should have scored, he should have scored a goal when he came up against the goalkeeper.
“That was because Coutinho didn’t want to do the defensive side of the game and as we’ve seen so often, Liverpool‘s centre-halves, particularly (Ragnar) Klavan, didn’t see the danger.
