Liverpool vs Fulham Soccer Analysis

Brilliance, excellence and pure skill are the words that best describe what happened this weekend for Liverpool vs Fulham. After a difficult defeat to Arsenal last weekend Liverpool needed to bounce back and continue their great form. Liverpool star striker Luis Suarez was given permission by the AUF to play the match before the match between Uruguay vs Jordan.

It was evident at the beginning of the match that Liverpool had the upper hand and would win the game but the question was by how much. Liverpool started this like they start every other game dominate by controlling the pace and possession of the ball. Liverpool First goal came in the first 20 minute of the game off a set piece, which looked like Suarez header it in but was called an own goal. Liverpool controlled the possession and seemed like they could do no wrong. Liverpool finished off their dominant performance 4-0. 2 goals coming from Luis Suarez Liverpool star striker.

Liverpool must try to keep their form from this previous weekend and apply that same confidence and attitude on the field and apply it to whomever they are facing. As long as they have Steven Gerrard healthy and being able to give direction there is a chance for Liverpool to play Champions League soccer next year. With the partnership of Suarez and Sturridge growing every week and them continuing to grow and evolve as a partnership they can only continue to do better.

This weekend Liverpool and the rest of the EPL are on international break the key Liverpool star that will be participating is Suarez who will lead Uruguay vs Jordan.
Lets all wish him luck and lets see if he can perform for Uruguay like he does for Liverpool!

Liverpool vs Arsenal Soccer Analysis

It is never easy tasting defeat, it’s never easy to see something so close in your grasps and it slip right out of your hands. That is the feeling that the Liverpool soccer players as well as Brendan Rogers, and definitely all the Liverpool supporters felt this weekend.

This past weekend Liverpool had the ability to take first place once again away from Arsenal. This was not a simple task to say the least but one that the Liverpool supports felt they could achieve, simply because Liverpool in recent weeks were in fantastic form. The match started off on a good note Coutinho a great play maker was going to be fit to play this coming game, it is always great to have an asset like Coutinho available to play. But that wasn’t the only news that Liverpool fans had to face Glen Johnson was out of the line up and Jon Flanagan who hadn’t played a Premier league match for 18 months was going to replace him. This news exploded all over in the twitter world and already many supporters had their doubts of having Flanagan play in Johnson role.

The first couple of minutes it seems clear that both teams were testing the waters and they weren’t ready to attack with all guns blazing. With a sell out crowd of 60,000 spectators everyone knew it was going to be an amazing game.

After a great chance by Henderson Arsenal scored on a second chance goal and were up 1-0, early in the game. Liverpool did not give up and were pushing forward. Suarez got fouled and made a quick pass to Sturridge who scored but the ref called off the goal because he showed a yellow card to the Arsenal defender. Coming to the end of the 1st half the frustration on the Liverpool players was evident.

Brendan Rodgers made a couple of changes during the break and changed the formation as well as putting in Coutinho at the beginning of the second half. The change took effect and made it easier for Liverpool to get to the Arsenal net but the chances were simply not going their way.  At the hour mark Arsenal scored their 2nd goal and that is how the game finished.

It was a hard fought match but Liverpool weren’t able to capitalize on their chances that were available to them. This week Liverpool will have a much easier test and hopefully can help boost their morals and continue on the pursuit of achieving Primer league glory
