Daily Red Podcast – Dave Hendrick’s Daily Roundup of All Things Liverpool FC
As we enter the second day of the international break Dave scanned Liverpool related sites to find news and topics to discuss. This Is Anfield produced a piece surrounding the no.6 role, Dave looks at the use of Alexis Mac Allister and the midfield in general.
When Liverpool signed Alexis back at the start of summer we all assumed he’d be plugged into one of the n0.8 positions, however with failed transfers for Caicedo and Lavia Liverpool never addressed the starting no.6 position with Fabinho’s departure. Alexis has been deployed in that no.6 position so far with mixed personal results. Dave looks at the role Alexis played for Brighton, and compares that to his at Liverpool.
Dave does also look at the other players in the midfield and their effect on the whole midfield. The Harvey Elliott debate rumbles on as the coaching staff clearly see the youngster as a midfielder, whereas some fans question if he has the defensive nous to perform in that position, especially when compared to the stability you see someone like Curtis Jones provide.
Dave also looks at Dominik Szoboszlai and ponders whether the Hungarian sensation can actually perform even better? If Liverpool were to address the no.6 role, would the extra freedom provided allow Dominik to play higher? Provide more goals? Provide more assists? It’ll certainly be interesting to see if and when Liverpool buy a starting no.6.
