NEIL Atkinson, Sean Rogers and Ian Salmon look at Liverpool’s all action victory at Carrow Road, and amidst the euphoria are left with much to ponder.
Liverpool’s on going set piece issue – Conceding 18% of set pieces against us. Ridiculously high and needs addressing, but how?
The problem we seem to have with physical centre-forwards, again, an on going theme, but one that Liverpool are still struggling to address.
Are we that flimsy at the back, or are we suffering from half-fit players on the pitch and a lack of options off it?
Does a lack of height and domination impact our effectiveness as set-pieces?
Lucas again impressing further up the pitch than what he’s historically known for, could be a big season for the senior voice in the Liverpool dressing room.
Firmino, all of a sudden putting numbers in boxes,starting to find his feet but at the expense of Benteke, is the Brazilian more suited to leading the line?
Lallana coming on and winning it for the Reds, a planned late change regardless of result due to fitness or literally a case of needs must?
In a free clip from the show, Sean talks about Liverpool’s weaknesses from set-pieces and the tell-tale signs that the manager might be struggling to address it.
Love listening to Sean Rogers talk about our games, such great insight!
I’m a bit worried about Sean watching the match with his chimp out. I hope he doesn’t spank it when it’s naughty.
Sure Rodgers tightened up things re: set pieces (and defending overall) at the start of this season, but remember we were terrible defending set pieces throughout last season.
