The Reds were stunned by Fulham and Crystal Palace in their first two Premier League fixtures where they came a goal separated from the Premier League side at half time in a 2-2 and 1-1 draw respectively.

A fatal error Liverpool must address if they are to avoid finishing outside the top four this season. The Reds have conceded all three opening goals in the Premier League so far, with their most damaging effort coming last night against Manchester United at Old Trafford. There is not much points between the two bitter rivals in the table, but there are seven points separating the runners up of last season from first placed Arsenal.

The Reds must address their defensive frailties if they are to take maximum points from games against Bournemouth and Newcastle United, according to defender Andrew Robertson.

Speaking to Sky Sports after their defeat to Manchester United the Liverpool full-back said: "Not the start to the season we wanted.

"We give every team a goal start. You can't keep giving yourself an uphill battle, we started slowly again and we can't keep going behind. In the warm-up, it was the quietest I've ever heard this stadium. They needed something to lift them.

"We looked to try and make them a bit nervous late on but they saw them game out well. Two points from nine isn't what we wanted and we need to pick up our individual performances very quickly."

Robertson hinted at poor defending when asked if he knows where the problem stands: "No, but we need to very quickly figure it out. "We need to come together and address it as a team. We can't keep conceding goals. We have to be a team that puts pressure on the other team, not the other way around. It needs to change. I thought we needed to pull our fingers out, very quickly. We started the second half slowly again.

"We're frustrated because we want to win games and right now, it's not happening. But it's important we stick together. Things need to be said but we're a team. This league is unforgiving so we need to start getting results quickly. If we do, I'm sure we'll look back on this and say that it's what kick-started our season."

Liverpool defence is being found wanting at the moment, with five goals already conceded so far this season and few signs of decrepitude.
