Indeed, an Emre Can equaliser wasn't enough to stop the Anfield outfit dropping another two points in Europe against a Rubin side that saw a man sent off during the first half.
And Ayestaran was surprised by the lack of creativity on show from Liverpool - and their lack of timing in midfield.
Long time i didnt see so short of creativity LV team on the pitch! Lack of game and timing in the middle!— PAKO ayestaran (@PakoAyestaran) October 22, 2015
The tweet is perhaps a little harsh and certainly badly timed, to say the least. Ayestaran clearly hasn't been watching Liverpool in the last few months, as the Reds' display against Rubin was a big improvement on the average performance this season.
Certainly, there were flaws and the same old problem of a huge amount of shots at goal with few on target.
But, right now, it looks as though Jurgen Klopp is taking every available opportunity to assess his players. He also has some key members of the squad out injured - captain Jordan Henderson and star striker Daniel Sturridge are just two.
Ayestaran is right, of course, and even Klopp himself is not pretending Liverpool are playing well. With time, though, that will change. This is the side the new Reds boss has inherited; everyone will hopefully be aware rebuilding it won't be an overnight process.
