Tactical Breakdown: Atalanta 0-5 Liverpool

“I don’t think any system could have defended tonight Sadio, Mo & Diogo, the way they played, with the support of the others.”
In his post-match presser, Jürgen Klopp was bubbling with praise for his entire team, championing the manner in which the team defended with concentration and discipline, and attacked with synchronicity and fluidity. It was a significant departure from the nature of Liverpool's most recent games, with a distinct shift in tone, tempo and action, akin …
Ultimate test of Van Dijk-less Liverpool arrives at Man City

Ultimate test of Van Dijk-less Liverpool arrives at Man City

Can you think of a more high-profile, damaging injury to a Liverpool player than Virgil van Dijk's at Everton? I'm not sure there has ever been one that has had the potential to define an entire season like Van Dijk's, such is his colossal stature at the club. Having had him available throughout almost all of his nearly-three-year stay at Anfield, we now have the horrible prospect of not seeing him in a Liverpool shirt again for almost a year. …

Diogo Jota Form Gives Liverpool New Attacking Element.

Jurgen Klopp rejiggered his usual front three for Liverpool's thumping 5-0 win away to Atalanta last Tuesday. And it worked a treat as hattrick hero Diogo Jota -- who came into the usual attacking trident in the place of Roberto Firmino -- Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all scored in the humbling of the Italians. Although Gian Piero Gasperini's tactics were accomodating, with the Serie A side man-marking the Reds' players in their high lined defense, the success of the …

Atalanta 0-5 Liverpool: Player ratings from a masterclass in Bergamo

Liverpool produced their best performance of the season so far and one of their finest under Jurgen Klopp in a rout of Atalanta.

Alisson Becker - 7/10 After a nervy start which saw a couple of tame efforts nearly squirm away, Alisson authoritatively maintained Liverpool's third …

Liverpool took a huge step towards qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League with a thumping 5-0 win away to Atalanta. A hat-trick from Diogo Jota as well as a goal apiece from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah crowned a performance of attacking brilliance from the Reds. Had it not been for poor finishing and the form of Marco Sportiello in the host's goals, the English champions would have won by a bigger margin. From the offset, it …

Thiago Alcântara is still unavailable for selection, however. As are Virgil van Dijk, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Fabinho. It's unlikely …
Nat Phillips Can Provide Temporary Centre Half Relief For Liverpool.

Nat Phillips Can Provide Temporary Centre Half Relief For Liverpool.

Nat Phillips was picked as the man of the match award in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday last. The performance -- and individual plaudits -- represents somewhat of a redemption for the 23-year old centre-half. With 12 Championship clubs chasing the Bolton natives’ signature in the summer, Phillips -- who had been deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield -- saw the writing on the wall for his Liverpool career. However, a move never materialized -- with Swansea …
