Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

It took some doing for Liverpool to best their most ridiculous performance of the season, but somehow they managed to do it.

Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

rIt has been clear to Liverpool fans for a while that Mamadou Sakho is an absolute titan of a man. He shows a passion for the club that scousers can identify with, but more than that he is the complete modern centre-half. He is comfortable getting tight on strikers, stepping up and defending on his massive front foot, but he is also a fantastic defender in the box, never caught out of position and a fully committed header of the …
