Tactical Breakdown: Everton 2-2 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Everton 2-2 Liverpool

Liverpool's goalless draw against Everton back in June - the first game of the restarted league season - was an intriguing affair in which Everton posed a number of tactical questions to Liverpool, and was able to slow down the red juggernaut. With Ancelotti's coaching clearly making a difference to Everton's performance, this game had an exciting tactical dimension to it. Yet despite Everton's superb form leading into this game, it was one which Liverpool dominated, with a number of …

Unlucky Liverpool Still The Team To Beat

If it wasn't for bad luck, Liverpool would have no luck. After the 7-2 drubbing away to Aston Villa, the Reds produced an excellent performance in their 2-2 Merseyside Derby draw at Goodison Park.

Beggaring belief, ALL the big refereeing calls went in the favor of Everton -- Jordan Pickford inexplicably …

Frustration, anguish, fits of anger and a bore draw, Liverpool may have returned to action in a less than stellar fashion… but I’m glad that it's back. The much anticipated return of the Merseyside derby may have ultimately delivered an anemic whistle instead of the earth shattering bang we had hoped for but it was a timely reminder of just how deep-rooted the emotional attachment to the Redmen truly is. Sat eagerly on our haunches for a three gruelling months, …

Oxlade Chamberlain Could Give Liverpool Derby Edge

Liverpool will reacquaint themselves with familiar adversaries when they reconvene their postponed Premier League season on Sunday evening. The title-chasing Reds face off against Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, knowing that a win will either -- depending on how Arsenal fare when they face Manchester City away on Wednesday night -- put them within touching distance of a 19th English top-flight triumph or -- should the Gunners eke out a surprise victory at the Etihad -- seal …
