Carlos Carvalhal ‘You put F1 car in London in four o’clock traffic, it will not run fast’
Whether he watches F1 via his TV or from actually at the circuit, is something that we have not quite worked out, but his master-plan of how to tackle Liverpool and how they play seemed to work well, this will make other teams think about how they approach playing the reds when they come visiting.
LFC Fan’s “We Sold Couthino”
The song was being sang all last weekend not on the Kop I may add, but Liverpool will not play attack minded teams each week, who will wish to go toe to toe, the Swansea game highlighted the missing creativity of Couthino, Liverpool could have done with him last night.
VVD = Defence Sorted?
Rome was not built in a day, and one man will not change a back 4 that still has issues defending set pieces, 4 players jumping for the first ball including VVD and then watching the 2nd ball break free highlights the issue may be in the system and not individuals.
Swansea = Safe From Relegation?
5 points separate 9 places at the bottom of the EPL, these 3 points were huge for Swansea and the new manager, points from games against Arsenal and Leicester next now are a must to stay in touch and continue the upturn in form, then the game against Brighton becomes a real “6 pointer”
Liverpool “Top 4 ?”
Last night was a huge 3 points dropped for the Anfield outfit, Spurs could have been looking at a 5 point gap after dropping two points at Southampton, but this defeat means that the top 4 is not a certainty for Liverpool and with the FA Cup and UCL games approaching a thin squad will be tested and is selling Couthino may haunt FSG and Klopp ? Replacements coming ?
