NEIL ATKINSON is joined for this week’s Tuesday Review by Sean Rogers and Ian Salmon to chat about Liverpool’s away victory at Selhurst Park as they overcame Crystal Palace in controversial circumstances.
Did the Klopp’s Sunday starting XI have one eye on this week’s tie against Manchester United or was it a case of horses for courses, or rather, looking to match Palace physically pound for pound?
Liverpool started brightly but seemed to run out of ideas, what happened? Did Palace cotton on and adjust or did we struggle to keep a rhythm?
The Palace goal? As ‘Sunday League’ as it gets, Liverpool failing to clear their lines properly again and paying the price. Why always us?
The goalkeeper, set the tone of defiance early on with a sharp, brave save at the feet of Bolasie, seemed to carry that confidence for the rest of the game, looked more assured.
Game of thirds. First half, second half and then post Milner dismissal, why did Liverpool look more likely to get back in to the game with 10 men and a mountain to climb?
Pattern emerging of Liverpool looking strong late on in games, surely a good thing but need to get in to the habit of getting a lead as opposed to chasing one?
As ever, all this and more in this week’s ‘Tuesday Review’.
