Football: Better Call Raul

Recommended Posts

Robertson has been awful yet again too. His lack of quality on the ball (crosses on the run aside) is really showing this season.

This is the game I've been least confident about recently has dropped points written all over it.

Fortunately for us, Salah lost the ball before he could shoot it into the defender's legs and Henderson played Firmino in.

Story of the year we are digging these games out where previously we would have conceded late to draw or lose we are now able to go again and find a winner. We might not have played as well as we would like and haven't looked as fluid as previously under Klopp but we keep on getting the right result because the team is tougher and more determined than ever before.

Hard luck to Wolves they were great and I really enjoy watching them play. Traore has turned himself into a really good premier league winger.

That's the end of a very tough January for Liverpool. They had to play Wolves, Sheffield, Man U and Spurs, and they've not dropped a single point. They only conceded one goal in any of those matches. 

It's the opposite in February, with Southampton, West Ham, Norwich and Watford. Southampton are the only team there who seem to be playing particularly well at the moment, and that's at Anfield. March is, if anything, even easier - granted one away match Everton. But that's 21 points there for the taking before they play City away in April.

Crazy season.

Thing is, that's a lot less of a problem for Grealish than Alli or Maddison - he's not a straight no10 for preference, although he's obviously played there. Alli isn't a traditional one either, of course, but he's more reliant on being  pushed up close to the forwards.

Just going back to this. Southgate's almost certainly going to play 4-3-3 and I think the likelihood is he's going to try to be Liverpool lite with a pacy, somewhat interchangeable front 3 and creativity from the fullbacks. That requires the midfield 3 to do quite a lot of work covering for the fullbacks, like Liverpool do, and probably rules out Maddison from being part of plan A. Grealish would be a better bet but you're probably looking at only one of him, Alli or Oxlade-Chamberlain making the starting team.

ETA: Or theoretically one of Mount or Foden too I suppose.
