Liverpool go back to the past and scare the Premier and Europe again

Liverpool are back. “What we did was crazy. Pressing, recovering the ball and scoring incredible goals. At half-time I told them we had to play even better,” confessed Jrgen Klopp after the 0-5 at Old Trafford. Their second straight hand out after the 0-5 at Watford kept them second, one point behind Chelsea. But they have not only started well in the Premier. In the Cha

mpions are leaders with full, in the Carabao Cup they passed round and

they are undefeated. They have 21 duels! without losing


The ‘reds’ have recovered the ‘gegenpressing’ and the signs of identity that led them to win the Champions League in 2019 -in 2018 they were finalists- and to play the Premier against City with a record of points (97 to be runners-up in 2019 and 99 for win it in 2020).

The ‘MSF’, with Salah ‘on fire’, is lethal. The wings fly, the medullary imposes its rhythm, Van Dijk sends back …

‘Rock & Roll’.

The crisis of 2020-21

Injuries swept Liverpool away last season. They were unable to defend their crown from its hole in the back. “

Most problems are due to injuries

. Never in my life have I had to change my rear every week, “Klopp said.

Van Dijk, Matip and Joe Gomez broke down and forced the German to push Fabinho and Henderson back, blurring their sock.

And the signings of Kabak and Davies were insufficient patches: Pool went from the lead in December to eighth in March after losing six straight league losses at Anfield, never before seen after 68 unbeaten games. “The important thing is to qualify for the Champions League,” said Klopp. And eight victories in the last 10 days took them to third place. ‘Match-ball’ saved.

The ‘signing’ of Van Dijk

The summer has been quiet at Anfield.

The 40 million euros paid by Konat – Leipzig’s defense – have been the only ‘network’ expense.

Nor did they replace Wijnaldum (PSG). The signings were in the nurse. “We have three new players without buying them: Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Matip. Now we are more stable,” said Klopp. The return, after almost a blank year, of the Dutch central defender has been key.

“We can play more forward with Van Dijk.

We are more aggressive with him because of how he handles space and long balls, “explained Pep Lijnders, Klopp’s assistant, in ‘The Athletic’.

With ‘VV’, the ‘Pool’ drowns the opponent in their court. Alexander-Arnold and Robertson can be deployed untethered from the sides – they add four and two assists, respectively -, Fabinho, Henderson, Keta … bite – they are the team that has regained possession the most times (249) in the middle in this season. Premier- and the ‘MSF’ shines.

We can play more ahead with Van Dijk. We are more aggressive towards him because of how he handles space and long balls

Van Dijk and Alisson changed the red story … and the defender has returned to finish the job:

In nine matchdays they have conceded six goals -third less after Chelsea (three) and City (four) –

and they have left their goal to zero six times being the highest achievers (27 goals)! They have balanced.

Salah ‘revives’ the ‘MSF’


Liverpool’s improvement has revitalized his trident

. “We are not fresh”, Klopp pointed out last year when Man (16 goals between all the tournaments) and Firmino (nine) lowered their benefits, signing their worst figures with him. Only Salah (31) held out. And with ‘Mo’ the revolution began.

“Right now, he’s the best in the world,” Klopp noted.

. ‘Pichichi’ of the Premier (10 goals),

Salah has 10 consecutive duels ‘wetting’ and 15 goals in 12 matches between all fronts

. Man and Firmino accompany him with six targets each. And even Jota helps them (four).
