Lack of Depth Costs Liverpool 4 Points in 2 Matches

Two players in particular have been made scapegoats for Liverpool's poor return on their past three contests. 

Against Arsenal, Pepe Reina took the blame. With a 2-1 lead, the Spaniard conceded to Theo Walcott from a poor angle. 

Reina's woes intensified at Eastlands. With the Reds once again up 2-1, Reina inexplicably went far off his line in an attempt to stave off a Sergio Aguero run. Once again, Liverpool conceded an unnecessary two points. 

Yesterday, it was Daniel Agger's turn to take the fall. With the game even at 0-0, Agger failed to properly defend a corner. He then gave Romelu Lukaku the deciding goal with little resistance. 

Yet, in at least the past two cases, perhaps the blame is overplayed. To that end, the team's lack of depth played a major part in failures against both West Brom and Manchester City.

Here's how.
