Liverpool’s Impressive Display Against Leicester City

Liverpool’s first home game of the season in front of a 54000 packed Anfield stadium was a joy to watch. The atmosphere was fantastic, the team the management and the fans were up for it, and it was a great game to watch.

In the first half, The Reds were absolutely fantastic, they press the ball, closed down spaces and every time they attacked they looked really dangerous.

In the lead-up to the first goal, the Reds showed great movement, a good ball from James Milner to Roberto Firmino who’s first touch was sublime and with the coolest finish put the ball in the back of the net for the first goal.

The Reds were relentless in their attack, some of the link-up play was breathtaking. Daniel Sturridge looked sharp and put in a very good performance. The second goal was a joy to watch, a through ball from Jordan Henderson which Daniel Sturridge ran on to, with a defender at close quarters he produces a back heel which Sadio Mane runs onto and puts the ball in the back of the net, 2-0 Liverpool.

Liverpool were in full control of the game, Lucas Leiva who was covering for injured Dejan Lovren at the back gave the ball away in the 18-yard box, which Vardy capitalised on making it 2-1.

In the first half, The Reds enjoyed 63% possession, 10 shots on goal, and 7 on target.

Liverpool started the second half with the same vigor, Leicester found it difficult to keep up with the pace, movements, and runs of Liverpool. Eleven minutes into the second half and another wonderful goal, the build-up to for the was an absolute joy to watch a sweet strike from Adam Lallana arrowed into the top corner, 3-1 to Liverpool.

Liverpool’s fourth goal a pass from the back which Mane run onto leaving Kasper Schmeichel in no man’s land runs to the edge of the Leicester box and passes the ball to Firmino who took a cool first touch and calmly strikes the ball into the back of the net, Liverpool 4-1.

The Reds looked dominant, strong, and most importantly look like a team with a lot of believe. The team looked solid both in attack and defence.
