Wigan 0-1 Liverpool
English Premier League
8 March 2010
Liverpool once again struggled to score goals on the road as they lost 0-1 at Wigan on Monday. Wigan Athletic started out a bit slow but started to work their way into the match.
Most of the possession was with Liverpool but they failed to turn that into goals. Fernando Torres has a few decent chances but his rust form injuries showed in the match. Overall, the team seemed to lack the quality and finishing that let to a second place finish last season. Wigan would grab the lead in the 35th minute as Hugo Rodallega scored on a cross from Emmerson Boyce.
The goal was scored because Liverpool gave the ball away in the final third and Wigan took advantage of that chance. The win puts Wigan in better position to avoid relegation while the loss for Liverpool hurts their chances of a 4th place finish. It could be the Europa League and not the Champions League next season for Liverpool.
