Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

With injuries aplenty following the international break and a deluge of fixtures awaiting Jürgen Klopp's red men, an acceptable result seemed more important than a strong performance. With Salah, Alexander-Arnold and Thiago all unavailable, the champions were without their three best creative players, leaving the creative burden upon a midfield and forward line that has had little time to develop the sort of relationships required to pick apart a defence. Likewise, Leicester was without Ndidi - their most important midfield …

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp shed some light on the availability of Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keïta after The Reds' emphatic 3-0 victory over a high-flying Leicester City team on Sunday evening. Klopp's side moved up to second in the Premier League, trailing Spurs on goal difference, thanks to the victory at Anfield. Goals from Jonny Evans (own goal), Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino and a rock-solid defensive performance from Alisson Becker, James Milner, Fabinho, Joël Matip and Andy …

Liverpool 3-0 Leicester: Player ratings as Reds make more history

Liverpool have extended their home unbeaten run into club-record territory following a hugely impressive victory against high-flying Leicester. Without Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah, the three-and-a-half-year streak was in serious peril. But the Reds scoffed at that suggestion, powering to victory with strikes from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino after a Jonny Evans own goal. Here's how they rated. Alisson - 7/10 A second Premier League clean sheet is welcome for …
Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Liverpool comprehensively defeated Leicester City 3-0 at Anfield to move level with Tottenham at the top of the table. A Jonny Evans own goal, and headers from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino sealed the victory for the Reds in an imperious performance of attacking football. Were it not for the numerous saves of Kasper Schmeichel in the visitors' goal and two goal-bound shots being cleared off the line, the Champions would have won by a more handsome margin. The pre-match …
Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to play Leicester City on Sunday?

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to play Leicester City on Sunday?

Liverpool welcome league leaders Leicester City to Anfield this Sunday evening in what should be an enthralling Premier League clash. Unfortunately for Jürgen Klopp, his squad has been decimated by injuries and positive COVID-19 tests so far this season. That trend is set to continue when Brendan Rodgers and co arrive on Merseyside this weekend. With rumours circulating that Roberto Firmino has tested positive for COVID while on international duty with Brazil, we have to wait and hear more substantial …

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

April 23rd, 2017. Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? At that point, Jurgen Klopp was still only in his first full season as Reds manager and his side hadn't yet played in the Champions League under him. This was still a year before the agony of Kiev, let alone the glorious triumph in Madrid and the Premier League title that followed, and Mo Salah, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson weren't yet Liverpool players, …

Remembering Liverpool 4-1 Leicester in 2016, amid injury chaos in 2020

Hallelujah, the final international break of 2020 is coming to a close. Whilst manager's will understandably be worried about injuries from the though schedules ahead, football fans can at least look forward to a plethora of club action leading into the new year. Despite that, there has been a fair bit of doom and gloom this week for Liverpool supporters. With the upsetting passing of Ray Clemence coming in the midst of another national lockdown, Reds fans have had their …
Reds rumoured to be interested in bringing Leicester ace to Anfield

Reds rumoured to be interested in bringing Leicester ace to Anfield

Liverpool are reported to be keeping tabs on Leicester City's creative young forward Harvey Barnes. Barnes, 22, likes to play on the left-side of midfield or attack. He can also play the '10' role behind the striker(s) as an attacking playmaker. Scoring six goals and providing 8 assists this season has seen Barnes' profile rise in the Premier League. He played an important role in Leicester's season under Brendan Rodgers and it's certain Rodgers would be keen to hold on …
Should Liverpool be interested in Leicester attacker?

Should Liverpool be interested in Leicester attacker?

Harvey Barnes was the talk of Liverpool Twitter last week. I’m not entirely sure, but I’m not one to pass up an opportunity to take a detailed look at a player. The Leicester City man impressed me last season after returning from his loan spell. His expected goal contribution (goals and assists) was higher than averages posted by Raul Jimenez, Callum Wilson, Romelu Lukaku and a host of other names.  Barnes had an expected goals average of 0.32 per 90, …
