Arsenal 2 Liverpool 0: Outperformed rather than Outplayed | Tactical Analysis

Arsenal 2 Liverpool 0: Outperformed rather than Outplayed | Tactical Analysis

Arsenal for their part started in their usual 4-2-3-1 shape. Arteta and Ramsey started as the holding midfielders, although Ramsey didn't particularly play as a holding player, preferring to get forward and combine with Cazorla, Ozil, Rosicky and the lone striker Giroud. This was at risk of leaving Arteta isolated on transition defence. Liverpool continued with their 3-5-2, keeping the same midfield shape as they did last week against West Brom with Lucas as the pivot just in front of …

Steven Gerrard | Player Performance Analysis Vs Newcastle

The events of last week will stay with Steven Gerrard for the rest of his life. Going into the last two qualifying matches against Montenegro and Poland, knowing that only two wins out of two would suffice for him and his England colleagues, he produced what can only be described as a captains' innings. Leading from the front he rallied his team mates and though at times it seemed like it may be difficult to breach the defences in both …

Man City 0 Liverpool 1 | All the Stats from the Carling Cup Semi Final 1st leg

So it was first blood to Liverpool in the Carling Cup semi final after they edged, or rather squeezed past Manchester City, at the Etihad Stadium. If you'd offered Liverpool any type of lead going back to Anfield for the second leg I think they'd have more than taken it. We, at Anfield Index, have once again analysed the game using the Performa Sports iPad App (as we have no access to Opta stats for Cup competitions) and all of the …
José Enrique effectiveness vs. Wigan

José Enrique effectiveness vs. Wigan

Quality left-backs at Liverpool have been a premium down the years but the acquisition of José Enrique has proven to be an excellent signing. Defensively, he is everything you need in a full-back; he's strong so holds attackers off with ease, calm and confident on the ball, quick, his positional sense is second-to-none and he knows exactly when to put his foot into a tackle. At £6 million, 'El Toro' is quickly becoming one of the signings of the season. …

Three jinxes ended as Liverpool FC defeat Stoke City at the Britannia

In football it is a lovely feeling when a jinx is broken. So how great a night was it for Liverpool FC supporters when three jinxes were broken in one night? It was an excellent result for Liverpool FC, especially since they didn't deserve to lose at the Britannia earlier in the season after totally dominating the game. In that game they dominated possession 72.7% to 27.3% and dominated shots by 16-2 but still lost! Some basic stats from the …

Steven Gerrard | Effectiveness vs. MUFC

It was strange to see Steven Gerrard scoring after such a long absence. Strange but excellent. He returned to the starting line-up against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon after sitting on the sidelines for seven months. Funnily enough, his last start was against United where he excelled in a deeper midfield role. This time, Gerrard was given an attacking freedom that suits him so well. For the most part of the first-half, Steven was out on the right for protect …
