Liverpool overwhelmed the typical UEFA team

The defending champion of the Champions League accounts for half of the typical team voted by fans on the UEFA website.

The first member from Liverpool is goalkeeper Alisson. The defending Champions League also plays a backbone in the defense, contributing three players including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Virgil Van Dijk. The remaining position of the defender belongs to Matthijs De Ligt, the former Ajax defender who now plays for Juventus.

Liverpool have a bunch of players that can form an unbeatable team

The last member from Liverpool is Sadio Mane. According to the arrangement of the fans, Mane played as a winger. This arrangement is somewhat different from reality, where he plays as a winger for Liverpool and Senegal.

The fans also ranked Messi (Barca) in the winger position. The two central midfield positions belong to Frenkie De Jong (Barca) and Kevin De Bruyne (Man City).

In the strikers, fans choose Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and Robert Lewandowski (Bayern). In particular, Lewandowski is impressed with 40 goals in 47 matches in 2018-2019 season and 30 goals in 25 matches in the first half of 2019-2020 season.

With five members, Liverpool is the team that makes the biggest contribution to the representative team. Barca and Juventus came in second with the same two members, while Man City and Bayern had one player.

The fact that Liverpool almost occupied the defensive system of the typical team also shows the solid foundation of the victory. Without the best defense system today, it is difficult for attackers like Mane, Mohamed Salah, or Roberto Firmino to go far.

Building a victory from the defense also shows how correct coach Jurgen Klopp spent large sums on buying Alisson and Van Dijk. In addition, he also has the talent to turn poor starting players like Alexander-Arnold, or Andy Robertson into big stars.

Liverpool stopped in the quarter-finals of the League Cup

Liverpool lost to Aston Villa 0-5 in the quarter-finals of the League Cup of England, on 17/12.

For the first time in club history, Liverpool had to play two matches in less than 24 hours. As coach Jurgen Klopp and his first team went to Qatar to attend the FIFA Club World Cup, young coach Neil Critchley had to lead the U21 team to the quarter-finals of the League Cup with Aston Villa.

Liverpool thus set the record for the youngest squad in the history of the League Cup and also the youngest club history, with an average of 19 years and 182 days. The first five players wore the first team, while Herbie Kane first started. Across the front line, Aston Villa also replaced 10 positions compared to the starting line-up against Sheffield last weekend.

Young Liverpool talents are not afraid in the cold rainy night in Villa Park. The away team holds more balls throughout the match and also scores more. In just the first 10 minutes, Liverpool had no less than two chances to face goalkeeper Nyland but could not score.

The biggest difference between the two teams, besides experience, is luck. Aston Villa’s older squad that didn’t need to control the game was still leading 4-0 after the first 45 minutes. The home team only finished three times, all went to goal and had four goals.

Conor Hourihane opened the scoring in the 14th minute after a penalty from a tight angle. The ball went through a forest of players that made Liverpool goalkeeper Kelleher wrong. Only three minutes later, El Mohammady’s cross struck Morgan Boyes’s foot to change direction, flying straight into the net in Kelleher’s powerlessness.

The visitors were not dismayed after goals conceded. Liverpool scored three times more goals than Aston Villa in the first half, but they did not have the chance to score. Conversely, the home team just shoot is on. Jonathan Kodjia completed a brace in the first half, scoring after 37 and 45 minutes after Liverpool’s missed dribbles.

The second half saw a match between the two teams. The young Liverpool team remained loyal to the high pressing style that Jurgen Klopp built at the club, but lacked a bit of coolness in the finishes to get a goal. Aston Villa played leisurely but still scored another goal in the second minute of injury time, by striker Wesley.

Losing 0-5, Liverpool stopped in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

While many England’s football teams gain success, English national football team is still faded (Part 2)

As for Chelsea, although Ruben-Loftus Cheek scored the opening goal, their real hero must be Kepa Arrizabalaga when the Spaniard excelled in blocking two penalties, thereby helping the Blues hard. overtaking Frankfurt. Earlier, in the first leg on German soil, another Spaniard was also the only goalscorer for Chelsea.

In crucial moments that require bravery, we don’t see the appearance of the British. And do the teams really need the Englishmen to achieve these achievements?

Arsenal won with a team of 13/14 foreign players, where are the English players?

4 English teams reached the final, but sadly, in the case of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier, the role of the English players in the host team is quite precarious and lackluster.

Danny Rose, an English international, still competes every day in the left-hand corner against Ben Davies. The same thing happens to Eric Dier and Harry Winks, the duo are even showing a losing position in the race with these tall, muscular midfielders, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.

In Liverpool, Trent-Alexander Arnold and Jordan Henderson both shone brightly in the team’s 4-0 win over Barca. However, unlike Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane, these are not irreplaceable names in The Kop.

The British Football Association, but the British Football Association is all 4 years old

Arnold is good, but not a real star at Liverpool.

At Camp Nou, coach Juergen Klopp used to put Arnold on the bench to replace with Joe Gomez. As for Henderson, it is not an important factor in Liverpool’s play.

In the current Liverpool squad, the only English player who can be sure of starting if healthy is Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain. However, Chambo has been away from the pitch for more than a year, and no one is sure whether he will regain his peak form.

Anyway, the situation of the indigenous players in these two teams is still much better than the bleak scene going on at Arsenal and Chelsea.
