Sadio Sinks Spurs and Seduces Anfield

Liverpool 2, Tottenham Hotspur 0.  By Umarah Naz.  It seems fitting with Valentine’s Day around the corner that Liverpool have been reunited with their true love. Of course, I’m talking about Sadio Mané. Embed from Getty Images He has proven to be the heartbeat of the club this season, and his absence last month saw Liverpool’s pulse fall away with their title and cup dreams dying a cruel death. A top four berth is still very much alive for the Reds but the winless run needed to stop. And what better club to do it against then one of your continue reading

After a tough week, Liverpool have the task of travelling to North London on Saturday lunchtime to take on Tottenham Hotspur in a difficult league encounter. This article looks that challenge, and how I see the game panning out. After the last league match, Liverpool need to put in a strong performance so fans can reinstall their trust in the league campaign. Some fans comments on social media after the Burnley game would have you believe that relegation was imminent. It was a very poor performance, but one thing we do know as Liverpool fans is the inconsistency of the side continue reading

Tottenham 0, Liverpool 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Tottenham Hotspur 0, Liverpool 0 White Hart Lane, London (35,962) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 7.5 Made some good saves at vital times. As much as Liverpool’s new system worked for Klopp, if it wasn’t for Mignolet they could have come away with nothing from his opening game. Saves from N’Jie & Kane in the first half were particularly notable. The first a reaction save with his right glove, and the second a stop with feet. Nathaniel Clyne – 6 Prefers being in a back four rather than a wing-back in a back five, and this showed as he returned continue reading

His kicking was generally poor, but he played a part in the first goal as it was his long kick from hands to Sturridge which set the move off. *Emre Can – 8 Dominates his area of the pitch in whatever position he plays. Can now be classed as a central defender, such is his proficiency in the position, but looked equally at continue reading

Tottenham 0, Liverpool 3 - LFC Tactics & Player Ratings

Tottenham Hotspur 0, Liverpool 3 White Hart Lane, London (36,130) Liverpool scorers: Sterling (8′), Gerrard (pen 49′), Moreno (60′) Tactics The introduction of a second striker – Mario Balotelli – saw Liverpool revert to the diamond formation which was successful last season. The main difference this campaign is that new full-backs Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno seem well suited a system which relies heavily on them to provide both width and defensive solidity. 1st Half Formation The prime example of this was Alberto Moreno’s excellent goal. He won the ball back just inside his own half before sprinting down the left continue reading

LFC Tactics & Player Ratings - Liverpool 4, Tottenham 0

Liverpool 4, Tottenham Hotspur 0 Anfield, Liverpool (Att: 44,762) Liverpool scorers: Kaboul (2′ OG), Suarez (25′), Coutinho (55′), Henderson (75′) Tactics Liverpool reverted to the 4-3-3 formation which we saw at the end of the game against Sunderland. Philippe Coutinho replaced Joe Allen in the left of centre midfield, with Raheem Sterling playing as one of the three forwards. Luis Suarez played mainly on the left, with Daniel Sturridge through the middle and Sterling on the right, but the three interchanged when required. Width was provided by both full-backs, with Johnson more prominent on the right but Flanagan also providing an outlet continue reading

Tottenham Hotspur 0, Liverpool 5 White Hart Lane, That London (Att: 36,069) Liverpool scorers: Suárez (18, 84)Henderson (40), Flanagan (75), Sterling (89) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 6 Had no real difficult saves to make, but looked uncomfortable on the odd occasion coming for crosses and playing out from the back. Can be surprisingly good with his feet on some occasions, though. Glen Johnson – 6 Provided good attacking width on the right and was generally solid defensively. Still struggling with the final product, but got off one excellent left footed effort. Martin Skrtel – 6 Won his duels in the air continue reading

Liverpool 3, Tottenham Hotspur 2 - LFC Player Ratings

Liverpool 3, Tottenham Hotspur 2 Anfield, Liverpool (Att: 44,752) Liverpool Scorers:  Suarez (21), Downing (66), Gerrard (Pen 82) Brad Jones – 6 Stepped in for Pepe Reina who was out with a calf injury and was solid enough. Got his body behind a few swerving long range efforts, particularly one free kick from Bale, which other ‘keepers have struggled with this season. Glen Johnson – 5 Was poor with his marking at set pieces and sloppy in attack. Got in one good block on a Sigurdsson shot which would have gone in, but didn’t have his best game overall.
