Liverpool's perfect performance: Tactical masterclass?

Liverpool's perfect performance: Tactical masterclass?

Liverpool's demolition of Bournemouth appeared to be one of the complete performances of the season. Utterly dominant and prepotent in the first half, Liverpool romped to victory, with a pressing, passing and offensive performance which defied all expectations. https://twitter.com/Caley_graphics/status/942502495582113797 To me, Liverpool looked distinctly better with their passing.

Liverpool's league campaign didn't pan out how many had envisaged. An eighth place finish, given just how poor the competition is, and a two point decrease in total …

The latest game was yesterday's win at the Stadium of Light against, a struggling, Sunderland. Immediately after the game a lot of supporters, myself included, put the win down to a bit of lady luck that went our way after half an hour of the first half.
