Manchester City arrived to defend. Has Guardiola ever done that before? Klopp really has the upper hand.
Liverpool – 0
Manchester City – 0
Before this game we looked towards the games from last year to determine the fact that this game would give us a lot of goals. That certainly didn’t happen. For the first time in Guardiola’s career, he tried to defend without the ball. What a compliment to give the city of Liverpool. Liverpool are having a hard time in front of goal though. The front three is not working at the moment and I think it’s time to start Daniel Sturridge. I understand the fact that “Bobby” Firmino is a better defending forward, but I think Liverpool needs to start scoring again. Liverpool really looks like a team with the power to go for the title this year though. Compared to last year the start have been amazing and I can see them taking it all the way, but let’s see. We have been wishing to much in the past.
Dejan Lovren. Klopp took his time with Dejan and oh my God did Dejan step up against Manchester City. He looked like a world-class defender and now I want him to start every game. How long has it been since Liverpool have had that kind of luxury problems in the defensive line? This team is growing and I think Liverpool should feel lucky for having Jürgen Klopp. He is close to being the greatest manager in the world.
I feel that Mane or Salah should get this one. They didn’t suck, but opponents a very aware of those two. Maybe Liverpool needs to play two up front. Sturridge and Firmino perhaps? But still defend i the same formation. Back on track – Mane gets “Game zero” this time. Not because he sucked, just because Liverpool are suffering in front of goal and he is not scoring.
