#LfC news Premier League title is now Liverpool's to lose

0 Просмотры
The shock of the season seems to have arrived already, with suggestions that it is Liverpool’s title to lose following Manchester City’s unexpected collapse at Norwich. The shock being that anyone would be daft enough to make such a long-term prediction after five games. If the Premier League really is the toughest and most competitive in Europe, as everyone keeps saying, then it is clearly not going to be decided in September even if the present gap is five times larger than last season’s winning margin.

Liverpool will certainly have been given hope by the defending champions losing to a newly promoted side, because questions are now being asked about City in a way that was not happening a couple of weeks ago. The most urgent being why on earth they did not buy a replacement for Vincent Kompany when they knew their captain was leaving. Kompany provided his own answer to this after his testimonial a few days ago, pointing out reasonably enough that four top-quality centre-backs is too large a number for most clubs to run since it will usually involve one of the quartet being left out of the matchday squad.

City got away with it for so long because Kompany’s unenviable record with injury meant he was often missing or recovering, effectively allowing the other three to play enough games, but his departure coupled with Aymeric Laporte’s absence and now a month out for John Stones means they are down to just Nicolás Otamendi. “Anyone can be unlucky with an injury,” Kompany argued, but that was before the unconvincing Carrow Road display and the muscle injury Stones subsequently suffered in training in Ukraine.

Suddenly there is a chink in City’s armour, and with Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher doing their best to spotlight the deficiencies in their defence, the visit of the bottom club, Watford, to the Etihad on Saturday could not come at a better time. Players such as Fernandinho and Eric García are available to patch up the backline and in all probability Pep Guardiola’s side are not about to lose to strugglers who have just re-appointed Quique Sánchez Flores, though City blips often last longer than a single game and, based on their last performance, Watford appear to be responding to their new manager. While those of a Manchester United or Liverpool persuasion are bound to be cranking up the pressure on Guardiola and his players while they can, the chances are that playing Kevin De Bruyne from the start will be enough to revive City’s fortunes.

EPL's Alan shearer, peter crouch are joined by Roberto Martínez to react to Liverpool's stunning 2-1 victory over Tottenham to send Jurgen Klopp's side to the top of the Premier League table. Klinsmann wonders if Tottenham's early success is sustainable, while Burley lauds Jose Mourinho’s ability to get his squad to buy in defensively. Leboeuf feels Tottenham need to play a team with a similar style to prove themselves to be true contenders.
Roberto #Firmino's last-minute header broke Tottenham's stubborn resistance at Anfield and sent #Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.

An entertaining encounter looked set to end in stalemate before - with the game entering stoppage time - Firmino soared to flash a header high past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris from Andrew Robertson's corner.

Liverpool flew at Spurs in the opening exchanges and went ahead when Mohamed Salah's shot took a big deflection off Eric Dier and looped over Lloris.

Spurs had barely left their own half but struck with a counter punch seven minutes later when Son Heung-min raced clear to slip a composed finish past Alisson.

Spurs actually had the better chances in the second half, with Steven Bergwijn firing wide then hitting a post when clean through and Harry Kane heading over from point-blank range.

Manager Jose Mourinho was left to regret those missed opportunities as a late Liverpool surge ended with Firmino's winner to send the defending champions three points clear at the top of the table.
