Liverpool demolished Reading in their Barclays Premier League encounter… except for their goalkeeper Alex Mccarthy, who looked positively world class at Anfield.
Liverpool were undone by the world’s greatest goalkeeping performance in history from Reading custodian Alex McCarthy, and could only manage a 0-0 draw against the Premier League’s bottom side.
The Reds actually played quite well, and had a host of chances with an astonishing 26 shots on goal, but McCarthy was equal to all of their efforts – other than those halted by the officials.
Philippe Coutinho had a goal correctly ruled out for offside, whilst Luis Suarez’s chip over the goalkeeper was headed off the line. Had it gone in, it would have been a lovely goal from a flowing team move, but it was not to be.
After half time, Reading came into the game, and could even have stolen all three points – an all too familiar scenario at Anfield this season.
However, they too could not make the breakthrough, and the points were shared.
