Liverpool's pressure continued to grow, though, and Sheyi Ojo should have added a second shortly after the hour mark when he was slipped clean through on goal, only to see his finish saved by the feet of Hitz and bounce up against the crossbar before the ball was cleared away off the head of Naby Keita from the rebound.
