There have been subtle tweaks but these haven’t been anywhere near as drastic as many had expected.  In his feature, Carragher talked about the backline’s preemptive positioning. Without the recovery pace of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Liverpool have stopped trying to …
Tactical Breakdown: Brighton 1-1 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Brighton 1-1 Liverpool

Before looking at tactics I think it's important to preface any tactical discussion within the unique circumstances players, managers and clubs find themselves in, especially Liverpool FC.

Saturday's 1-1 draw away to Brighton certainly detracted from what has been a solid start to the season. Yes, it was a draw away at a side you would expect Liverpool to be beating, but it really should have been a win for Klopp's side. An incredibly unjust penalty decision …

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was eager to heap praise on The Reds' sub goalkeeper Adrian after his surprise late appearance in Saturday's win against Brighton Adrian was on the bench and not expect to be called into action so late in the game. However, when Liverpool's first-choice 'keeper Alisson received a straight red card for handling the ball outside the box, Adrian had to come on.
