Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

It was a thrilling game, in which the points were shared, but one in which the away side will be by far the happier of the two sides. Liverpool dominated the entirety of the first-half, scoring early, cutting through Spurs with ease and squandering glorious chance after chance. Liverpool's gameplan, to press aggressively and surrender the ball was good, and with Spurs using a 4-2-3-1, it became perfect. The spaces were there for Liverpool to exploit, and on a number of …
Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

Elite Salah Can Become a Liverpool Icon

In amongst the carnage of the final minutes of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Spurs, Mo Salah scored a goal that had the potential to be one of the greatest Anfield moments of the last decade or so. The chaos, controversy and fume surrounding Kane’s two penalties and the disappointment of two points dropped cannot be allowed to take the shine off what was an absolutely extraordinary goal. Salah picks the ball up from a difficult angle, and appeals for handball, …

What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

After two terrible defeats in the space of six days and the Reds failing to add to their squad in the January transfer window, Liverpool fans were understandably extremely concerned about how the rest of the season would pan out. One of the most pressing issues was the team's lack of creativity in midfield, without the magician, Phil Coutinho, how were the Reds going to break down teams who play with a low block? Gini Wijnaldum has rarely been effective …

The answer to this question is interesting for both Liverpool fans and fans of the teams that are among the top 6 teams in the Premier League.

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

A frantic finale saw Liverpool and Tottenham secure injury-time goals, playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Such plans got off to the perfect start when Mohamed Salah netted his 20th goal in the Premier League inside the opening few …

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Drop Points To Spurs

Struggling to wrap my head around that one, in the aftermath. How much context will the draw have in our season? Probably not that much. Who gains momentum from this one, probably neither. Both teams will feel they should have won. John Moss won't be getting a jokey referee rating from me because there aren't enough expletives in the world to sum up the shambles that was the officiating. The players can get some ratings though, here they are. Better …
Roberto Firmino Needs To Produce More

Roberto Firmino Needs To Produce More

“Firmino is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League – he’s highly rated by Klopp but outside Liverpool he’s not mentioned when talked about top strikers.”
The above quote was from Jamie Carragher during the Monday Night Football programme on Sky Sports on 15th January. It is certainly a sentiment that I agree with. Among neutral fans and the mainstream media, Firmino isn’t talked about in the same way as the likes of Harry Kane, Sergio …
Liverpool Should Have Recalled Divock Origi

Liverpool Should Have Recalled Divock Origi

I am a huge fan of Divock Origi. I admit that to many people that’s not an opinion that has much merit but there for me are a number of reasons why Origi is a great player. The key point in this article is not necessarily that Origi is a great player, although I think he has the potential to be one, but that Origi fits a hole in Liverpool’s squad – and a hole that he himself filled last …
