Rafa needs to find Rondon-like subs that can hold up the ball because Joselu/Muto sure can't do that.
I'm sure Rafa will be straight on that
I get it, but Rafa planned poorly.
You absolutely needed Rondon or something like him today, to hold up the ball when it was hoofed upfield, to battle Lovren/Van Dijk, to slow down the game. Joselu/Muto could barely do that at all and the result was a training-ground performance for Liverpool who were quickly getting the ball back and staying in rhythm. It was never disrupted.
I agree with Rondon needing to rest but you could had rested him in the farce performance at home vs Fulham or even give Joselu/Muto their shot next game at Watford. This was pitiful from the get-go.
