This is already not wanting to recognize the quality of Liverpool. Liverpool technically can play far better than what they did against Atletico. Besides, I bet that football games in which both teams didn't make any kind of mistakes would always end 0-0. Your argument can be used to dismissing all the great performances in football history, only blaming the adversary's faults. I'm now remembering a heated discussion that I had in other forum with a Real Madrid fan who would just never recognize the quality and technical level that Guardiola's Barcelona had (I'm not saying that this Liverpool is even remotely close to that Barcelona), he would always blame their great performances, like the 5-0 against Real, on just the adversaries being incompetent or bad, he would even say that he considers Guardiola's Bayern and, Allegri's Juventus, Klopp's Liverpool and pretty much all other top teams of the decade better than Guardiola's Barcelona, no matter how much and anyone else talked in the forum about how exaggerated he was being, it seemed like he had a blind spot towards Barcelona's amazing technical level even if you showed videos, he would always blame the opponents. Everyone gave up arguing against him and saw him as a troll at this point. This totally didn't happen in redcafe, I didn't find a troll of this level yet here.That is such a broad statement to make. If they played at the level, I do not buy that because as a manager you have to prepare for the opponents strengths.
Leicester didnt, and they let the full backs go forward unchallenged time after time again which made Liverpool's life easy.
Athelti wont do that, they will make sure they defend well.
So what you should be saying is, if Athleti played like Leicester Liverpool would have won
