Diaz Shines But Reds Rue Missed Opportunities

Lessons Learned From 1-1 Draw With Manchester City

And everyone can put down the angina spray and breathe. This one had practically everything from penalties and penalty shouts to needle and missed chances on either side galore. If anything the two goals owed more to the mistakes of either side as opposed to great play. However, when it’s all said and done there’s frustration from the reds with not having taken three points, which looked at big ask at half-time. The kids were more than alright and but for missed chances, it could have been different. We look at the lessons learned from the battle of the best two teams in the league at Anfield.

Everything But The Goal

Luis Diaz was a menace for the 90 minutes and it almost felt like we were watching the player we’d first signed from Porto. He took on and terrorised Kyle Walker for the majority of the game, as well as tracked back and won numerous tackles for the team. If you avoid the finishing element, he was sensational. However, in the big games it’s what makes the difference. In the first half, he struck wide when on the edge and you expected him to at least hit the target. Two one-on-one misses when you expected the net to burst drew auditable gasps from Anfield and a great team move with a return pass from Nunez could have been a fourth great chance. He played well overall but he and most reds will be frustrated tonight.

Mac Allister – Game Changer

He’s been in sensational form recently and it’s fair to say he joins the likes of Salah, Nunez and Jota as one of Liverpool’s game changers. With City starting to get an early toehold, we needed the Argentine World Cup winner to come to the party and he more than did. As well as notching a great penalty, Mac Allister’s overall performance was brilliant and the stats bore that out. He won the most duels on the pitch (eight) and made the most recoveries of anyone in red (eleven). That’s now seven goal contributions in his last seven games and the charge for Liverpool’s player of the season award carries on.

The Kids Aren’t Alright…They’re Unbelievable

You can be honest now it’s over. We were worried when we saw that Konate hadn’t made the line-up and Quansah was starting alongside Bradley in an inexperienced right-sided back-line. Oh how wrong we were. Bradley was sensational before being replaced for Andy Robertson late on and but for one error we’d be talking about Jarrell Baresi. He won 100% of his aerial duels and made ten passes into the final third. We haven’t even talked about Harvey Elliott’s best performance in a red shirt ever but everyone should be ecstatic with how they did. Those coming back should be worried about getting in.

  1. the future is bright, the young defenders and attackers are sensational, not so sure about the young midfielders apart from curtis jones and harvey elliot.

    Great analysis.
