There's the Liverpool we all know and love. The Merseyside club ended Man City's unbeaten run in this season's Premier League struggled to break down a resolute Swansea City a club which still sits bottom of the league despite their win at the Liberty stadium.
The Welsh side took the lead in the first half after a scramble in the Liverpool defence. Van Djik got caught under the ball and struck a Swansea player, Alfie Mawson reacting quickest to sweep the ball into the bottom corner amongst a melee of red and white shirts.
Liverpool huffed and puffed but in reality they did not create many clear cut chances with the best effort falling to Salah who skied a volley after a beautifully lofted ball by Van Djik.
The absence of a certain Brazilian playmaker was heavily felt this evening as the substitutions of Danny Ings and Adam Lallana in the latter stages of the game proved fruitless.
With a sizeable chunk of money resting in Anfield coffers and the race for top four as important as ever, surely Klopp will be prompted to spend big before the end of the month.
Although it is unfair to point the finger at Ings as the reason for Liverpool's lack of a killer pass, he is a symbol of FSG's frugal spending policy, and fans were not happy when the Englishman was called into action:
We've just sold our best player for £142 million, we're bringing on Danny Ings to try and rescue a point against Swansea but we're "waiting for the summer" for the perfect player, at the perfect price. Absolute shite.

From beating City to bringing on Danny Ings to rescue the game at Swansea a week later. At this rate Liverpool will be liquidated by the end of the month

£142 million in the bank and we look to the bench and see Danny Ings coming on. No offence to Ings but he won’t win Liverpool games and Klopp has to spend. Simple as that.

We’ve just sold our best player for £142m and we’re now happy to rely on players like Danny Ings off the bench. Dead mentality

I’d love Danny Ings to score. I’d also love to win this weekends Euromillions. #LFC

My club bringing on Danny Ings to try get a goal & you wonder why I don’t join in with the mocking on how much Manchester United are paying Alexis Sanchez wages

You know it's bad when all we can turn to is Danny Ings

Clutching at straws here but hoping Klopp sees this as a wake up call and gets the finger out in regards to transfers. Sold the best player in the Premier League two weeks ago and had to bring on Danny Ings to chase a game tonight. I mean, come on.
